Maxson Stacker Enhancement Upgrades Sheeter Pile Quality

Wednesday, December 02, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

To improve pile quality on light weight and/or static prone materials, MAXSON AUTOMATIC MACHINERY COMPANY now offers a stacker enhancement that incorporates tapes over the pile, a unique air delivery system and a connecting frame that mechanically adjusts the stacker when setting up the size in the delivery system. In addition to assuring press ready piles, the new design increases line speeds by as much as 200 fpm (65 mpm) while reducing set up time.

The delivery system's overlap carriage is joined to the stacker's front stop assembly. The connecting arms serve as the framework for the tapes over the pile design. When the Operator repositions the overlap carriage for a new cut off, the sheet length setting for the stacker is automatically set.

Compressed air is introduced at the end of the delivery system creating a cushion between each cut packet that overcomes static build up and helps to float long, limp sheets up against driven top tapes that carry the sheet out into the stacker.

Unlike less Operator friendly designs where belting extends the entire length of the stacker frame, MAXSON's design mounts rolls within the unifying framework and stacker front stop assembly in which tapes extend out over the pile for the set sheet length.  This construction allows Operator easy access to the piling area without having to avoid belting beyond the sheet size being run.  Additionally, the Operator can laterally position the tapes over the pile more easily.
