Profile DeStacker mod.

Profile DeStacker mod.

To destack profiles off the basket (a.k.a. rack, skip, stillage) so that the first batch to be destacked is the last batch stacked or produced upstream. This machine follows the FIFO logic.


The frame is engineered to be strong and robust.


The machine consists of: Main support structure The structure that supports the stacker is made of four uprights sitting on the floor. Two runways will be located on the upper part to let the (B) carriage run horizontally. Upper Horizontal Stroke carriage This unit is made of a beam and two heads on which specifically-engineered wheels are mounted. The wheels are made of a self-lubricating high resistance material that prevents the wearing of the guides. The horizontal stroke of this unit is controlled by the PLC so that the utmost accuracy is guaranteed. Movement of the carriage is achieved electrically. Vertical Stroke Gripper carriage This unit is electrically driven by a motor and vertically guided to obtain accurate alignment with the basket. Each destacker undergoes (as required by our internal ISO9001 standards) a strict engineering process to ensure a reliable functional unit. Acceleration and deceleration ramps are controlled via PLC to guarantee smooth operation of the unit. The grippers assembled on this unit attach to each spacer and lift the layer of profiles. Spacer container infeed/outfeed conveyor A manual conveyor will permit the loading and the unloading of the spacer container to and from the spacer receiving position. The spacers boxes are to be loaded by means of a fork lift or a bridge crane onto a carriage to which four roller bearing wheels are attached. The carriage has to be manually located under the (E) spacers magnets carriage. Spacer Magnet carriage The funciotn of this device is to pick up a layer of steel (magnetic) sleeve covered spacers and lay them down in the spacer container. The horizontal carriage wheels are made of a self-lubricating high resitance material that prevents the wearing of the guides. The vertical carriage which incorporates the magnets is located within the horizontal carriage. Spacer collection device A carousel will be installed at the exit of the belt to receive the spacers coming from the toothed belt that runs below the profile batch drop-off position The carousel will form the layer that later will be picked up by the spacer magnets
