The core functionality of this versatile stacker is based on proven technology, with one major innovation; it uses a split moving plenum that allows the stacker to easily adjust to multiple lengths of veneer, consequently making traditional stackers (with multiple plenums) obsolete. Historically, stackers intended for various lengths of veneer utilized three plenums, adding to the number of belts, knock-offs, valves and more, which resulted in higher up-front costs, and were more expensive to maintain. Sweed’s groundbreaking adaptable solution keeps the stacker concept simple and makes changeovers (from one length to the next) as easy as a push of a button, in less than a minute.
Sweed’s innovative solution to multiple lengths also applies to standard stacking applications. The split plenum design dramatically improves accessibility, which allows for internally located knock-offs rather than the traditional exterior mounted cylinders.
This results in a more reliable, better balanced knockoff interface with the veneer, thus resulting in higher stack quality.
Sweed’s Versatile Veneer Stacker is the only one in the industry that uses a simple approach to solve a traditionally complex problem. This patented design, coupled with Sweed’s engineering expertise and stateside support, result in a superior solution at a competitive price, both initially, and in years to come.
