MONK Stacker M5100

Fully automatic stacking or de-stacking at speeds up to 500 items per hour.

Trays enter the stacking machine on a conveyor, stopped, lifted to the next level and held while the next tray enters underneath. This sequence is repeated until the desired stack height is reached.

 

Fully Automatic Machine Loading

Trays are automatically loaded into one of five lanes in the storage system where they wait in a queue. There are 16 trays in each lane giving a storage capacity of 80 trays. One Flex Chain 'Load/Unload Conveyor' runs the complete length of the system, from the tray storage system past all six machines to an out-feed conveyor. The 'Load/Unload Conveyor' has 5 load units and 5 unload units together with sensors and stop gates. The Load/Unload conveyor system is controlled by a PLC (programmable logic controller) which communicates with the five machines PLCs. Sending and receiving signals concerning the loading and unloading of trays.

 

Optical Tray Handling System

Trays are automatically loaded onto a stack storage conveyor at the start of the line.  The trays are de-stacked and then conveyed to the ground floor of the factory.  They are then fed automatically to all of the process machines. The conveyor system is controlled by a PLC (programmable logic controller) which communicates with all the machines individual PLCs. Sending and receiving signals concerning the loading and unloading of trays.

 

Spectacle Lens Distribution System
