Lengthwise optimization and pusher

Accumulating and lateral doubling behind the corrugator

The stacks leaving the corrugator are composed to adequate blocks. The lengthwise optimised block is positioned in front of the pusher laterally pushing the block onto the parallel section. A second block is positioned in parallel to the first. The positioned blocks are now centred in parallel and thus they are ready for simultaneous transport. The transfer car takes over both blocks at the same time. In addition, this unit also provides crosswise optimization of the blocks.

 

Advantages:

  • increase of storage area by lateral shifting of the blocks by means of pushers
  • reduction of cycle times

Functions such as crosswise optimization for complete pallet utilization and optimization of horizontal flute are realized with the same mechanism just by switching on additional software components.
