Bunting Magnetics Co. offers magnetic sheet stackers for moving ferrous parts. The stackers move sheet metal components directly from existing conveyors, punch presses, stamping or blanking operations, and other production machinery.
They transfer, indexes and stack the sheet metal components at preselected destination points. They utilize permanent magnets to hold each sheet while it is transported to the stacking point. The sheet triggers a sensor that disengages the drive motor clutch, activates a brake, and releases the sheet above the stack.
A cycle timer and air valves reposition the magnetic element inside the conveyor to accept the next sheet. The released parts can be stacked on a pallet or conveyor in any desired quantity, ready to be conveyed, moved, or shipped.
