THE PARTICLE BOARDS' FLOW
From the cover panel station, cover panels are brought in and the manipulator uses suction cups to take a panel and place it on one of the four lanes, depending on the size.
A trolley then collects the panel and transports it to the stacker. Once a stack has been completed, the same trolley transports it on the central line to the packaging installation. An aligned top sheet is placed on top as it passes through the installation. Manual intervention for labelling or for applying cardboard is possible.
Then the stack goes to the cube and slat warehouses, where a manipulator lays top cubes or slats of the same length as the width of the packed panels.
Top and bottom cubes are placed simultaneously. For this purpose, we have built a cube and a slat warehouse with ten positions, where ten types of slats and top cubes are available.
Finally, the pack goes to the strapper. All this is done at a Takt time of 100 seconds per stack.
