A custom stacker for sheet over 20 ft long is under construction at Vulcan Machinery Corp., Akron, Ohio. It requires two vacuum stackers with servo motors for precise positioning and support along the traveling arm. Previously, Vulcan's largest sheet stackers could handle sizes up to 12 x 12 ft with a single vacuum stacker. The dual stacker is T-shaped and stacks on both sides of the cutoff, so a finished stack can be removed while a new stack is being built in the opposite bay. It's believed to be the first such system on the market. The machine can also stack shorter sheets at higher speed by using only one of the two vacuum pick-up units.
