Douglas Is Awarded Patent on Velocity(TM) High-Speed Stacker


Alexandria, Minnesota - February 22, 2007

Douglas Machine Inc. was recently awarded a patent for the Velocity(TM) High Speed Servo Stacker technologies. The Velocity(TM) is a high-speed stacking mechanism that gently forms stacked product pack patterns without interruption, providing continuous product flow at speeds to 600 products per minute. Intelligent programming accurately counts products and automatically adjusts the product flow rate to prevent jams due to product spacing inconsistency.

The Velocity(TM) features servo controls for quick and repeatable tool-free changeovers, excellent flexibility for running numerous product sizes and pack patterns on one machine, and a compact design for an efficient use of floor space. The Velocity(TM) does not require pre-stacking or priming resulting in rapid startups.

The Velocity(TM) is used on Douglas product lines including the Axiom® Case and Tray Packers and cartoners.
