Automatic Feed Company (AFCO) has introduced the Edge Stacker stacking system.

The Edge Stacker is designed to transport blanks via an overhead conveyor system and precisely drop them into ice cube stacks, regardless of the end use. The system was specifically designed for blanking or cut to length lines producing surface sensitive steel, surface sensitive aluminum, or blanks for laser welding.

The ability to maintain edge quality is also a significant feature of this design. The Edge Stacker is available as a single or double station stacker that can be equipped with either switchable permanent magnets, vacuum capability or a hybrid version that includes both.

The overhead belt conveyors are servo-driven, providing blank support and precise delivery of parts from the press or shear to the stacking area. A variety of stacking guide options are available to ensure ice cube stacks while protecting surface and edge quality.
