Air-Board Systems offer numerous buffer spaces for jogged layers. They bridge the waiting-times between jogging and cutting. Air-Boards, which are put between the layers, separate the layers and are also used for the layers transport. Air-Boards are put in or taken out by the operator.

Modes of operation
The Air-Board System is installed between the jogger and the cutter. The layers are jogged in the automatic jogger, buffered in the air-board system and are then transported towards the cutter. It is also possible to put in pre-jogged piles directly at the air-board system, thus skipping the automatic jogger, and transport the layers towards the cutter.
After the jogging process the layers are buffered and restacked with the assistance of the air-board system. The layers are then transported from the air-board system towards the cutter either automatically via the rear-table or manually via the front-table.
