The Stacker unit, receives carton streams from the Gap Generator, parallel streams of shingled cartons are conveyed to the Carton Stacker. The Interface Conveyor, an integral part of the Stacker, couples the Stacker and Gap Generator together. The Interface Conveyor it is equipped with vibrating “plows” to align and guide the cartons into the stacker and delivers the streams of carton blanks to the magazine at a rate equal to the speed of the Gap Generator conveyor. This provides a continuous flow of cartons to the stacker magazine. Wheels on the slow-belt conveyor stabilize and Jogger plates control the streams of carton blanks as they travel to the magazine.
When the stacks reach a predetermined height, the discharge cycle initiates automatically, then are deposited onto the Discharge Conveyor for transport downstream for disposition. (normally a Receiving Table)
