• The device is intended to create a stock of different types of parts to be subsequently handled. The parts are placed on pallets, which gives them a specific position with regard to the handling truck or robot. The parts are picked up from the pallets by handling trucks or robots and after that are stacked in the device set on the technological production line.
  • A manual truck is used for fast replacement of pallet carriers with pallets and parts, relocating the pallet carriers to the cage of the main vertical stacker body – the final pieces are rapidly dragged from the main body onto the truck, with new semi-finished products removed from the truck to the main stacker body.
  • The complete stacker assembly is controlled by its own PLC. The device communicates with the following types of robots:
    • KUKA
    • FANUC
    • ABB
    • Staubli
    • Others
    • The device communicates with robots and robots with the machine.
  • Gradual ejection of pallet carriers with pallets and parts to the working area of the handler or robot. The handler/robot removes the parts and handles them, e.g.: Clamps them in the clamping fixture for machining by a machine tool
    • Clamps the tool in a clamping fixture – tool grinding
    • Sets parts during assembly – assembly plant, line
    • Sets parts in – fine mechanics, electrical engineering
    • Works with semi-finished products – e.g. food industry

 

  • The basic design can be expanded with certain options
  • Thorough knowledge of the parts to be handled is essential for correct identification and setting of the proper stacker function
