What is stacking?
Stacking is the process of arranging a various number of items in a neat pile, usually to utilise storage space. Therefore de-stacking is the reverse action, of moving items from an organised pile. Both of these actions are widely used across the logistics and warehousing sector to overcome obstacles and issues particularly with space.
Stacker solutions in the warehousing industry
Industries using warehouses rely on stacking solutions. These businesses have to properly utilise their available storage space, and the correct stacking system can aid this. The system will be automated and work together with your conveyor systems. Numerous conveyor systems require efficient ways of stacking boxes, crates, or pallets.
Tote and carton handling
As part of a tote and carton solution installing tote stacker and de-stacker conveyor systems will improve workplace efficiency, productivity and the health and safety of your facility or warehouse. Tote & carton conveyors are modular in design and capable of conveying totes, containers, cartons, trays, and products.

Combining stackers with conveyors
Stacking is often at the end of the conveyor cycle in a tote and carton handling system, as the finished product is packaged it can therefore be stacked. Therefore, de-stacking is usually installed at the start of a system when a storage item needs to be stacked ready to be loaded into. When installed into a conveyor system, stacking solutions in warehouse facilities can improve efficiency, productivity, and throughput.
