Quick Change® skid insert

Quick Change® skid insert 

Manchester Industries is an industry leader when it comes to innovation.  Our Quick Change® skid insert allows you to quickly and easily change skids on press while continuing to print with no need to lift and re-stack paper onto press compatible skids.  The Quick Change® skid insert is proven to be a great time saver making it the perfect solution for achieving more profitable press runs while reducing the risk of injury.

 

Our Quick Change® skids of quality paperboard come to you press-ready, to be unwrapped and printed immediately.  With Manchester’s precision sheeting process, there’s no need to take that extra time jogging, aerating, or re-stacking paperboard onto press compatible skids.  With the Quick Change® skid insert, hand stacking is now a thing of the past.  This makes loading the press much safer and greatly lowers the risk of repetitive motion claims and lower back injuries in compliance with OSHA standards.

 

This proven system allows you to load a fresh skid while completing the run on the current skid.  Just insert the metal swords into the groves of the Quick Change® press ready skid insert to hold the paper in place.  Now you are able to lift the paper, remove the empty skid and spent insert, and take them away.  Next, place another skid into the press, remove the swords allowing the reserved lift above to drop down on the new stock and voila!  Our inserts can be re-used and being ecofriendly and biodegradable they can be recycled directly into your waste system.
