Towards the end of 2015 BKC where awarded a prestigious contract to design and build a machine that would stack fluted board sheets automatically onto pallets, a simple task you may think but when the sheets are coming at you 2 every second, in varying sizes up to 1400mm x 1400mm and in varying thicknesses the challenge becomes less simple.

BKC’s design team came up with the solution and ‘the stacker’ was built. Utilising the very latest Siemens plc and servo drive system technology we are able to control and stack the sheeted product neatly and accurately at speed, adjustments are automatically made to the machine in mid flow to cater for the differing sizes and thicknesses of sheet. Operator control of the machine is made via a Siemens HMI interface panel. An example of bespoke engineering at its best providing a solution from concept to creation.
