Unique Lay boy Design Reduces Sheeter Set Up Time

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Maxson Automatic Machinery Company (Westerly RI USA) offers a unique design that connects the overlap carriage of the sheeter’s delivery system to the front stop assembly of the sheeter’s stacker.  This feature provides the benefit of reducing set up by setting the length of the stacker’s jog box at the same time the overlap carriage is positioned for a new cut off, saving 5 – 10 minutes in make ready time.

On a high production sheeter, the cut packets are shingled in the delivery system with a high speed and low speed tape section.  A driven, bake-o-lite roll is incorporated into a carriage to control the leading edge of the sheet as it enters the slow speed tape section.  The distance between the end of the high speed tape section and the position of the overlap carriage is the sheet length being cut.

Connecting frames on either side of the overlap carriage are attached to the stacker’s front stop assembly, which is positioned to allow sheets to be tightly jogged into a well formed pile.  By moving the overlap carriage, the front stop assembly is automatically set, eliminating the need for the Operator to walk from the delivery system to the front of the stacker and properly set up the stacker.maxz
