SM 100 with Air Gap Belt Conveyor
The SM100-LuRi automatic stacker is used to stack strips, boardgoods, frame and profile timbers which have been surface treated previously. They are stacked down in platform rack trucks. The machine adapts to any required work cycle and is programmed in such a way that all stacking functions occur automatically.
Stacking changeover can be executed automatically without any interruption in production i.e. equipment can be supplied which allows stacking to continue while changeover is executed, without interrupting production.
It also independently removes workpieces from a feed device. The workpieces are led over the machine by means of continuous lifts and transferred to two belt conveyors. The workpieces are gathered in parallel on this belt conveyor into a complete layer with an air gap between them. The layers of workpieces are deposited on the posts of the platform rack trucks by lowering the belt conveyor.
Resetting to different workpiece lengths takes only a matter of seconds. Differences in length of 1:1.5 do not require adjustment. The machine readjusts independently to changing workpiece thicknesses. It is not necessary for workpieces to be of uniform length. To stack for consignment workpieces of greatly differing lengths (e.g. in window manufacture) workpieces are centre-stacked.
Workpieces can be unfinished and have slits, pegs, pins or mitres. 9.All stacking machines can be additionally equipped with automatic transfer devices, removal devices, pile unloaders or other conveying systems all the way to the automatic conveyor line.
