Arvin Sango Installs Dual-Stacking System

Thursday, April 18, 2002
ne Trail Technologies, Inc., Fort Laramie, OH, has supplied a dual stacking system to automotive-parts stamper Arvin Sango. Installed at the firm’s plant in Madison, IN, the stacker handles parts coming two-out of an Aida 800-ton press at up to 65 strokes/min. The line is being used to run formed parts in bulk and palletized blanks. Continuous-run capability enables it to continue to stack parts while a full pallet of parts indexes onto a powered roller conveyor and is off-loaded by a tow motor. Moveable rails on the pallets accommodate a range of part sizes. Parts can be off-loaded directly from the pallets so that the pallets can remain with the system. Arvin Sango manufactures components for fuel tanks, exhaust systems, instrument-panel beams, door-impact beams and C-Class stampings.
