Paper Stacker?

Paper Stacker?

(OP)
I need to get a quote for a device that would neatly stack sheets of paper as they're fed off of a belt, then when the stack reaches a certain height and/or weight,the stack would be automatically moved onto a pallet which would be taken away to be shrink wrapped.

I don't know where to start?  Could someone please point me in the right direction?
 

RE: Paper Stacker?

Jagenberg is the company that first springs to mind. But there are scores of others.

It depends a lot on size and volume. If the sheets are about legal/A4 size, then Jagenberg may be too large for you. Bielomatik has units for smaller sizes.

A simple stacker table can be made from a piece of slanting plywood with rims on two sides to keep the papers. Vibrate the whole thing slightly to get an even stack. A counter is usually better than a height switch or weighing. It depends on how important the exact contents of the stack is.
