Single Star Can Stacker

Single Star Can Stacker

For use with two piece cans with a nesting bottom configuration, the Single Star Can Stacker from Arrowhead Conveyor quickly and reliably stacks one can on top of another.

Two input conveyor lines transport cans to the stacker. The input conveyors are coped to provide a vertical offset equal to the tallest can plus dead plate thickness and clearance. The upper can path is diverted onto a dead plate that routes the cans directly over the top of the lower can path where they both enter the stacker on the same side together. The upper can drops off of the dead plate and onto the bottom can where the cans simultaneously meet at the star wheel and are kept in alignment. The star wheel controls the rate of the process and sends the stacked cans out to the discharge conveyor.
