GN Thermoforming Equipment, Chester, N.S., has introduced a new high-speed robotic stacker for its contact-heat, in-mold-cut thermoformers. The RSX unit delivers greater stacking flexibility and faster cycles for GN 3625DX, 3021DX, and 4532D thermoformers used to produce packaging.
The stacker’s rotating head turns products 180° for denesting and can stack any configuration that the thermoformer delivers, the company said. Another important feature is that the x-y axis is positioned in the center of the sheet line, unlike the previous system which had it positioned to the right. This results in more robust handling and transfer of parts at high speeds.
