Enhanced over stack panel feeder

Black Bros. Co. has engineered several design and operating improvements to its floorspace-saving Over Stack Panel Feeder, which robotically pushes substrates off an autoindexing scissor lift and into production equipment. Enhancements include: increased pushing force and running speed, up to 300 lbs. and 100+ fpm; increased range of board thicknesses, now capable of feeding board of 1/8” up to 4”; improved air cylinder, carriage movement, and operator ergonomics; and a new welded, braced frame for better stability and easy installation.    

The Over Stack Panel Feeder allows panels of 4’x4’ up to 5’x12’ to be engaged without the need for an additional operator, the company adds.
