Destacker Meets Demand for Rapid Production SpeedOctober 1, 2015
AP&T North America, Inc.
AP&T has produced a new destacker that meets the automotive industry’s demand for increasingly rapid production speed. The newly developed destacker can work twice as quickly as compared to a conventional destacker, and is intended for use for blanks for large vehicle parts (A-Class) such as doors, ceilings and sides.
The new DST-DH destacker is based on AP&T’s service-friendly standard modules and is equipped with double Gantry 200 feeders. The centering tables are equipped with brushes to ensure scratch-free handling. Picking is performed with the assistance of a vacuum. The destacker can be supplemented with a washer and lubrication unit. Since the destacker is module-based, it can be scaled down for use with other applications, such as in the domestic-appliance industry.
“The design was developed to correspond to the automotive industry’s high demands for short cycle times,” says Martin Sahlman, AP&T automation product manager. “It also has been adapted for careful management of materials including aluminum.”
