Original Press Release:
Accelerated Product Stacker Features Fingertip Changeovers and Stacking Speeds up to 95 Lifts per Minute
(September 10, 2003 - Reedley, CA) - SWF Companies' AS 100 accelerated product stacker achieves stacking speeds of more than 95 lifts per minute and is easily integrated with most case opening/sealing systems to provide a fully automatic case packer.
The AS 100's patented stacking system includes servo-controlled lifting cleats which elevate a completed layer of product as a second layer of product is formed, all in one continuous motion (subsequent layers are elevated in the same continuous sequence). Its speed, coupled with no-tool fingertip changeover features, allows the AS 100 to easily adapt to ever changing product sizes and configurations.
Featuring an integrated case loading mechanism, the AS 100 is designed to increase performance on any new or existing case packing system. Typical applications include but are not limited to a variety of cartoned and boxed products, such as cereal, rice, cake mixes, facial tissue, baked goods and snack foods.
Standard features include photo-eye-controlled conveyors, precision stacking speed control, positive metering and spacing, full operator safety and rugged construction. All of these features contribute to quick changeovers, increased performance, and reduced maintenance costs.
