Atlas automated blank destack feeders will separate blanks via robots, pick and place shuttles or overhead destack head to mag belts. The blanks are conveyed forward to a centering station for pick up by press feeding equipment.
Automated blank destackers ensure a continuous flow of blanks to the press. When equipped with a cranesaver conveyor (for queuing stacks), a lift table and a “continuous destacking” carriage, you can achieve nonstop destacking at production rates that range up to 1,320 parts per hour, without a pause in press actuation.
Robotic Front of Line Destacker Systems utilizes two destacking tables equipped with lifts and an optimally positioned robot. Robots typically offer a lower cost, highly flexible solution with the added benefit of a programmable pathway. Production rates range up to 720 parts per hour.
Both types of Destacker Systems may incorporate the Atlas Cyclone™ Washer and/or the GEN II Oiler for optimum blank cleanliness and lubrication.
