What is Coil and Sheet Handling?
Coil and Sheet Handling includes the transport of metal coils and sheet into stamping presses, laser cutters and CNC punching machines. Special machinery ensures proper loading, at the correct intervals, of properly shaped and oriented materials into these machines.
What are Stackers/Destackers?
Stackers and destackers are positioned at the front or entry end of a press, and can be pick-and-place or robotic mechanisms designed to provide a continuous flow of individual blanks into a press transfer or multiple-press tandem line.
