Overview

Corrugated sheets are being applied to every pallet before they are loaded with parts. A corrugated sheet will be picked-up from an 18″ high stack sitting in a collection bin and deposit it onto a waiting pallet, every two minutes. The system consists of five components;

  1. An 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
  5. The discharge pallet conveyor

Description of Operation

  • The shuttle conveys to the pallet position and stops
  • The sheet is lowered onto the pallet and released
  • The vacuum assembly raises and stops, awaiting another cycle
  • A signal is sent to start the floor conveyor to discharge the pallet
  • A new pallet is then discharged from the pallet dispenser
  • The cycle repeats
