The APV Panel Feeder / Stacker from Doucet, combined with automated lift tables, makes a simple, effective solution for feeding and positioning parts, says the company. In the Feeder Mode, a stack of panels is raised on a scissor lift, then a moving arm with suction cups picks the top panel and moves it into a feeding pinch roller mechanism to pull the panel from the stack over a belt or roller conveyor. After releasing the panel, the moving arm retracts to pick up the next one. In the stacker mode, at the end of a roller or belt conveyor, a moving arm with suction cups picks up the panel and moves it into the stacking area over the scissor lift. After releasing the panel, the moving arm retracts to pick up the next one. The panel lands over a scissor lift table that indexes down automatically when receiving panels. Features include a scissor lift table with hydraulic power pack and a moving arm with suction cups. A moving arm is powered by an electric motor with variable speed guided on a linear rail, adds Doucet. Custom configurations are available upon request.
