MCS -Manual Centering System
The Manual Centering System allows quickly adjusting the centering of the cardboard on the palletstacks.
Toppy MCS allows inserting and centering a plastic pallet supplied by the manufacturer for a “NON STOP” cycle, as well as blowing and aligning the paper and cardboard stacks.
The operator uses a lift truck to position the plastic pallet into the Toppy pile turner. Then a pneumatic system drives the pallet to the starting position, hanging it for the entire process. Using the relevant handwheel located on the side bar, the operator can select the paper size thanks to the numbered scale.
As soon as the desired paper size achieved, the operator can insert the wooden pallet with the product, taking care to overlap it to the plastic pallet that was previously inserted and placing it against the side guide edge so as the process cycle, including air/jogging, can start. After the working cycle, the pile turner will turn at 180°, having the wooden pallet on the top, ready to be manually removed by the operator. After removing the pallet, the operator can use the specific program to locate the plastic pallet, with the product centered, to the initial loading position ready to be removed by lift truck.
The “non stop” plastic pallet is inserted inside the pile turner and locked in position by the automatic pallet holder
The powerful air jets and the vibrating plate prepare the cardboard stack for the successive process
The pile turner ends the processing cycle by placing the cardboard stack in the center of the plastic pallet
The operator operates the handwheel and adjusts the size of the cardboard stack to position it in the center of the plastic pallet
Although all stages are automated, the operator can manually intervene in the processing of the pile
The machine stops and waits for the removal of the plastic pallet with the perfectly centered cardboard stack
The operator, using a forklift, inserts the wooden pallet with the cardboard stacks onto the “non-stop” pallet
The machine stops and waits for the operator to remove the wooden pallet. The pallet “non stop” is held back by the pile turner
The result is perfect and in line with the needs of the processing machines (printing machines, autoplaten, laminating machines and die cutting machine)
View the video of the Toppy pile turner with MCS system, which aligns and perfectly centers the stack of cardboard on the plastic pallet.
It is compatible with all types of plastic pallets used in the packaging industry for the “NON STOP” cycle.
The process starts by inserting the plastic pallet in the pile turner. Then a device connects and locks the plastic pallet, keeping it in position for the entire duration of the process.
Before starting the cycle, the operator can use the handwheel to adjust the reference bar of the square so that the paper stack is centered exactly in the desired position.
In order to facilitate the adjustment, the device is fitted with a graded scale with references for the main paper formats being used.
Process end: after aligning the cardboard stack in the middle of the plastic pallet, against the bar that adjusts the square, the pallet is taken back to the ground, ready to be collected.
