Straight line configuration

Figure 76 shows a tall buffer/flipper unit viewed from the front. Figure 77 shows a short buffer/flipper unit viewed from the front. Use the illustrations when threading forms through the buffer/flipper unit.

Use the numbered arrows as guides from Printer 1 at the middle of the figure (arrow (1)) to Printer 2 at the bottom of the figure (arrow (8)) or (5). The result is that the forms are inverted 180° between Printer 1 and Printer 2.

The guide collars on the roller bars, denoted by letters (A) through (D), were adjusted properly when the system was initially installed. Adjustments by you are probably not necessary, even if you are threading a form through the system with a different width than you previously threaded.

Figure 78 shows the Hunkeler WT4 Buffer/Flipper Unit viewed from the front. Use this illustration when threading forms through the Hunkeler WT4 Buffer/Flipper Unit. This threading is most often used for inline configurations but it can also be used for u-configurations.

Use the numbered arrows as guides from Printer 1 at the middle of the figure (arrow (1)) to Printer 2 at the bottom of the figure (arrow (5)). The result is that the forms are inverted 180° between Printer 1 and Printer 2.
