Tote Stackers and De-stackers
Asmech Systems is one the UK’s leading providers of tote stackers and de-stackers.
Tote stackers have forks or clamps that engage and lift totes vertically, allowing the next tote to enter the stacker magazine underneath the accumulating stack of totes. Once positioned, the carriage lowers the stack to sit into the last tote before releasing that stack into the storage area for accumulation prior to a tote de-stacker.
The tote de-stacker follows very similar movements as the Stacker, but uses an additional set of gripper arms to pull the bottom tote from the stack to feed one tote at a time out to the order picking or kit distribution area of a facility. The maximum throughput for each one of these units is approximately every five seconds but can be adjusted to meet the needs of each application and the overall limitations of our customers’ process.
Tote stackers and de-stackers’ full automation increases storage density for empty totes and improves worker efficiency and maximises the use of floor space. They can both be easily implemented to existing lines as a fully automated and low-maintenance solutions. These systems come in various shapes and sizes to suit requirements, and can stack many items including racks, pallets, tires, containers, and more. Stackers feature magazines which hold stackers as they are built up alongside an in-feed conveyor and lifting actuators.
