De-stacking machines are created to de-stack all kinds of goods, and they are designed to automate the process that would have been done by hand. This machine has three main functions: de-stacking, re-stacking and palletizing. With the help of this machine, your business can increase productivity, reduce labor cost and improve product quality. It also saves time, space and money while increasing efficiency in order to boost profit in the long run.

What is De-Stacking?

De-stacking is the process of removing a stack of objects from a surface. This can be done by hand, using a tool such as a crowbar, or with a machine such as a forklift. De-stacking is often used in manufacturing and warehousing operations to separate products that have been stacked on top of each other. This process can also be used to remove objects that are stuck together. For example, if two boxes get stuck together during shipping, they might need to be separated before they can be moved. In order for de-stacking machines to work properly, operators must follow proper procedures for loading and unloading them. Otherwise, accidents could occur.

Advantages of a De-Stacker

Destacking may not be the most exciting or interesting job, but it’s one of the most important operations in manufacturing and warehousing facilities. Here are five advantages that destacker equipment provides over other methods of destacking products.

De-stacking can save time and labor costs by reducing the need for manual labor.

In some situations, product stacks need to be broken down. If a person has multiple objects stacked on top of each other, de-stacking can save time because it requires less human labor than traditional inventory management methods. De-stacking could also remove objects that are stuck together so people don’t have to try and pry them apart later. When products become damaged or defective due to stacking, they often end up in landfills instead of being resold or recycled.

De-stacking can improve safety by reducing the risk of injuries from lifting heavy objects.

By moving an object from one location to another, rather than lifting it directly, a person is reducing their risk of a serious injury. When applying de-stacking techniques in manufacturing or warehousing operations, you can also improve productivity by increasing storage space on pallets. If products have been stacked on top of each other and need to be separated, they can be moved onto separate pallets—each with its own designated storage space—using de-stacking techniques. The same process applies when objects are stuck together; if they’re unstuck using de-stacking techniques, then it’s possible for them to be stored separately as well.

De-stacking can improve product quality by preventing damage that can occur when products are stacked on top of each other.

When objects are stacked on top of each other, damage can occur to either or both items. In some cases, products will be damaged by shifting during transportation or by loading/unloading processes. De-stacking prevents these types of problems from occurring. The method used for de-stacking will also vary depending on what is being de-stacked, but many methods that work for solid objects can also be used to separate liquids from solids.

De-stacking can increase storage capacity by freeing up space that would otherwise be occupied by stacks of product.

De-stacking can help you increase your storage capacity by freeing up space that would otherwise be occupied by stacks of product. Imagine a pallet with two 10x10x4 crates stacked one on top of another – that’s 16 cubic feet. If you unstack those products, you will gain 16 cubic feet back from each pallet or 2160 cubic feet across all your pallets. That’s a lot! In addition to increasing storage capacity, de-stacking also increases safety in your warehouse because it reduces forklift traffic. Less forklift traffic means fewer accidents and injuries.

De-stacking can reduce the risk of fire by reducing the amount of flammable material that is stored in one location.

The process of de-stacking involves removing products that have been stacked on top of each other. This reduces the height in a storage area, thereby reducing its ability to burn up quickly. The process can also be used to remove objects that are stuck together, such as boxes or containers. In these cases, de-stacking is sometimes referred to as debonding or unboxing. De-stacking makes it easier for workers to access material stored at the bottom of stacks. When items are stacked on top of one another, they become difficult for workers to access.

What are the categories of destackers?

Manual destackers

Manual destackers are the simplest and most common type of destacker. They are typically used for small objects that do not weigh much. One person is responsible for manually unloading and placing items on a table or other surface, while another person is responsible for taking them off of said surface as they’re unloaded. This process continues until all items have been removed from a container, at which point it can be closed up again.

Semi-automatic destackers

Semi-automatic destackers are used for larger objects that may be too heavy or difficult to move by hand. They usually have a conveyor belt, which allows you to stack boxes on top of each other and then pull them off as needed. If you’re planning on storing large items like furniture or appliances, a semi-automatic destacker is likely your best bet. It will save you time and energy when it comes time to retrieve items from storage, since you won’t need help from another person.

Fully automatic destackers

Fully automatic destackers are the most expensive and are typically used in industrial settings.  These systems use a robotic arm to pick up stacks of books from a conveyor belt, separate them into individual books, then stack them onto a new conveyor belt for storage or shipment. Fully automatic destackers can be very fast—they can process hundreds or even thousands of books per hour—but they’re also very expensive and require constant maintenance.

Best Practices For De-Stacking

The destacker system has been designed and manufactured to dependably cycle many times per hour in order to satisfy the rigorous schedule of a multi-shift automotive manufacturing environment. The destacker is made up of skid retaining arms, a mechanically controlled lift, and a power roller bed conveyor. A skid is launched onto the conveyor and stopped in place to start the operation sequence.

The retaining arms can close to support the skid once the lift has raised it to that height. The skid remains on the retention arms as the lift is subsequently raised back to its reduced position. A second skid is elevated to a height where it can interlock with the first skid as it moves into position on the lift. Now that both skids are safely stacked together, the retention arms open, allowing them to be loaded onto the conveyor and taken off for storage. To destack the skids for reintroduction onto the assembly line, same operation is performed in reverse.
