The DROP STACKERS are a modular range of stackers that can be fitted to the Foldmaker 35 or Foldmaker 55 sheet folders and Foldmaker 94 blanket folder. The simple drop conveyor system incorporated in this type of stacker requires fewer moving parts in its operation than most stackers of a similar design.
Duplex discharge conveyors are fitted as standard allowing for an accumulation of up to four stacks (depending on the size of the folded items). Items not requiring stacking can simply be bypassed onto the rear collection table.
The modular design of the stacker allows for up to three stacking modules to be utilised for the provision of an Autograding facility for the Foldmaker 55, whilst also allowing increased storage capacity.
A single stack module Auxiliary Drop Stacker (ADS) has the ability to stack items 840mm (33 inches) wide x 600mm (23.5 inches) in running length.
An Autograding Drop Stacker (AGS) has one or two additional stack modules, each capable of stacking items 840mm (33 inches) wide x 450mm (17.5 inches) in running length.
Additional conveyors can be supplied that will allow the automated transfer of completed stacks onto existing conveyors for onward delivery to packaging equipment.
