GN Thermoforming Equipment has introduced a high-speed robotic stacker for its contact-heat in-mold cut thermoformers due to consumer demand.

The RSX robotic stacker delivers greater stacking flexibility and faster cycles for the GN 3625DX, 3021DX, and 4532D thermoformers for the production of plastic packaging, said the company.

The rotating head turns products 180 degrees for de-nesting and can stack any configuration that the thermoformer delivers.

The x/y axis is positioned in the center of the sheet line unlike the previous system which had it on the right, resulting in more robust handling and transfer of parts at high speeds, said GN.

GN’s DX series thermoformers are servo-driven machines that the firm claim provides increased cutting capacity of APET sheet for food packaging applications.
