  • Requires very little maintenance.
  • Modern, user-friendly touch interface.
  • By analysing production data, stick management can be further improved, increasing stick lifetime.

Efficient stacking

With simplicity, high level of automation and low need for maintenance, you get a very cost efficient increase of performance in your stacker line.

Fast scanning and sorting

The quality of your sticks is analysed with respect to the following properties:

  • Length
  • Thickness
  • Width
  • Hook
  • Bend
  • Irregularities
  • Sprains and breakages

Scanning, analysis and sorting is performed at speeds up to 300 pieces per minute. Defective sticks are discarded using pneumatic pushers.
