Designed for use with the Lawson Mustang and Seneca flat-bed presses, the Companion automates movement of the substrate from the press while preventing material damage and press stopping substrate jams. The Lawson Companion Take-Off has a patented release system that virtually eliminates "paper-hang" so you save time, labor and money while dramatically increasing production. Lawson's unique timing belt drive system provides the smoothest, most quiet and reliable system available. At last there is a take-off that has no chain, needs no maintenance and eliminates chain drag/sag noise.

GRIPPER RELEASE SYSTEM
Simply put, all other systems open the grippers, "hoping" the weight of the substrate overcomes inertia fast enough to prevent paper hang. The patented Lawson Companion gripper system, mechanically forces and directs the substrate down towards the conveyor. The lower gripper is moved out of the way, as the upper gripper pushes the stock downward which prevents the problems commonly associated with stock release. The Lawson Companion Take-Off smoothly and directly ejects the stock from the gripper, depositing the stock on the receiving conveyor--with minimal paper-hang.
