Addressing the staff shortage in print finishing.

The StackStar C is the technological answer to the shortage of skilled workers in postpress. This automatic stacking system relieves the operator physically, which increases employee satisfaction and health. Cutting-edge robot technology creates a more attractive workplace at the folding machine, which makes recruiting easier. In addition, staffing requirements are reduced, as several folding machines can now be operated by just one operator.

The coexistent stacking system with intelligent safety features allows humans and robots to work together without a safety fence. The safety zone is clearly identified by light markings on the floor.

The light marks the safety zone around the robot.

Symmetrical design

The packages can be fed in from both sides.

Uninterrupted quality control

Samples can be removed during production without stopping the stacking system.

    Rotatable system

    Thanks to the symmetrical design of the stacking system StackStar C, it can be rotated by 180 degrees to suit your production flow. Therefore the pallet positions will be either on the inside or the outside. The infeed and outfeed ends of the feed line can be folded in to simplify machine repositioning within the production environment.
