Destacker tooling design feeds aluminum, steel blanks - TheFabricator.com

Bilsing Automation offers a flexible destacking system that can separate and feed both steel and aluminum blanks in various sizes and configurations. The system comprises 2.5-in.-dia. aluminum round-body tooling and other components manufactured by the company.

During a cycle, the automation lowers so that the peeler suction cups are all level, with the front cups spring-loaded and programmed to fire just before the other cups. Air knives then fire to help peel back the top sheet, breaking the vacuum to help separate the blanks.
