Vacuum Stick Placer Operation

This machine can be added to a lumber or plywood stacker

to place lath sticks between tier levels.

It includes a magazine where lath sticks are manually loaded. 
The vacuum pick up arm, when energized extends and pivots
into the magazine to pick-up the top stick.
The arm then retracts and lowers to place the stick on top 
of the pile.
Typically there are several magazines across a package.
These can be designed to move to various positions, either
automatically or manually.
There is a photo eye to detect when the magazine is approaching
This signal will power a light to let the operator know the magazine
needs refilling.
This design is an economical way to place sticks on a package.
Custom designs can be done to suit new and existing stackers.
Various widths and lengths can be handled.Cardboard lath or wooden.
