End of Crop Stacking
The End Crop Stacking System (ECS) is an end cut operation that allows the stacker to catch the lamination as it is being cropped from the end of the die and accumulated on an escapement mandrel. The escapement allows a short stack of laminations to stage on this mandrel. A transfer system moves smaller stacks to an area where they are constructed into taller stacks, to the programmed number of laminations entered by operator.
The completed stack is conveyed out of the stacking system to a staging area that the customer can define based on their operational needs
