Slip-Sheet Dispensers

Product Description

In this application, corrugated sheets were applied to every pallet before they are loaded with sensitive electronic parts. The operation will pick up a corrugated sheet from an 18″ high stack sitting in a collection bin, and deposit it onto a waiting pallet, every two minutes. This fully automatic slip sheet dispenser was built to run twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week

The system shown above consists of five major components; (1) the automatic pallet dispenser that feeds the machine, (2) an air operated overhead shuttle that carries the vacuum carriage back and forth, (3) an up/down four cup, vacuum assembly that picks-up the sheets, (4) a collection bin for the stack of corrugated sheets, and (5) the discharge pallet conveyor.

Specialty Equipment manufacturers the highest quality pallet conveyors and machinery. Many of the systems are custom made, but all the equipment built carries with it a well known reputation for rugged, long lasting construction.
