Custom designed and built for each application, automatic load/unload systems increase pressroom production while at the same time creating an efficient, operator safe work place. Automatic load/unload systems is the first step in a complete work cell that starts with raw materials at the input and finishes with a completed, ready-to-ship part at the output. The ability to custom design pre and post press machines and then integrate with automatic load/unload systems make it a great fit for pressroom automation applications.
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.
