Space, time and cost-saving singling system – Vac­u­um-based con­sign­ment sys­tem from eu­roTECH stacks boards

The new eu­roTECH vac­u­um por­tal in­te­grat­ed in a can­tilever rack sys­tem con­signs half-for­mat boards us­ing four pick-up and set-down sta­­tions in a lin­ear con­fig­u­ra­tion. The ef­­fi­­cien­t­­ly and space-sav­ing ac­­com­­mo­­dat­ed stack­er sorts board for­mats with di­­men­­sions meas­ur­ing up to 2800 mm x 2070 mm and weight of up to 200 kg. This ver­sa­tile han­dling so­lu­tion can al­so be ex­ten­d­ed by ad­di­tion­al sta­tions ac­cord­ing to re­quire­ments.

At one of Eu­rope’s largest pro­duc­ers of tim­ber ma­te­ri­als for the fur­ni­ture and build­ing in­dus­tries, the in­no­va­tive eu­roTECH vac­u­um por­tal se­mi or ful­ly au­to­mat­i­cal­ly sorts half-for­mat prod­ucts such as chip­board and lightweight struc­tural boards with vary­ing di­men­sions. The stack­er was in­te­grat­ed in­to the ex­ist­ing bear­ing and rack­ing sys­tem to cus­tomer spec­i­fi­ca­tions and thus re­quired no ad­di­tion­al sup­port­ing struc­­ture. The con­sign­ment sys­tem runs on sus­pen­sion rails and serves four pick-up/set-down sta­tions ex­tend­ing over a length of 12 me­tres.

The elec­tri­cal­ly op­er­at­ed scis­sor-lift mount­ed on the guide car­riage low­ers the in­stalled light-al­loy suc­tion cup frame at the pick-up point. The vari­ably po­si­tion­able flat suc­tion cups set down on the stack of boards and a pow­er­ful side chan­nel blow­er with change-over valve pro­vides the nec­es­sary vac­u­um. Four ad­di­tion­al­ly in­stalled bel­lows suc­tion cups guar­an­tee ef­fec­tive board sin­gling.

The vac­u­um lift­ing beam lifts up the se­cure­ly held board, which is then car­ried along the sus­pen­sion rail to the de­sired set-down sta­tion. A toothed drive belt, geared mo­tor with in­te­grat­ed DC brake and in­cre­men­tal po­si­tion en­coder en­sure the re­quired ac­cu­ra­cy. Dur­ing set-down, an in­te­grat­ed mea­sur­ing sys­tem checks that the board is pre­cise­ly set down and can­not slide off. To pro­tect the sen­si­tive com­po­nents, a sep­a­rate suc­tion cup set is ac­ti­vat­ed to lift up the oc­ca­sion­al­ly soiled pro­tec­tor boards.

The vac­u­um lift­ing de­vice de­vel­oped for the tim­ber and fur­ni­ture in­dus­try can be op­er­at­ed man­u­al­ly or ful­ly au­to­mat­i­cal­ly and can al­so be used in oth­er types of busi­ness. If nec­es­sary, the sys­tem can be ex­tend­ed by ad­di­tion­al load­ing and re­moval sta­tions along the hor­i­zon­tal ax­is. This ef­fi­cient han­dling so­lu­tion is suit­able for a large va­ri­ety of sin­gling, sort­ing and con­sign­ment tasks and can be linked up both with ware­house lo­gis­tics and pro­duc­tion sys­tems.
