Crane Loading System

Billco's Crane Loading System is a complete solution for storing, organizing and loading glass to the cutting table. The system may include fixed racks and/or automated compact drawer storage. This fully automated system retrieves and loads single sheets of glass without operator intervention. Designed with versatility in mind, multiple cutting tables may be loaded from one system and glass storage may be in an adjacent bay.
