Vacuum destacking

Vacuum destackers use vacuum suction bars to lift the top layer of a stack and place it on the subsequent mechanization equipment. Depending on the design, the suction bars can travel in transverse or longitudinal direction. Possibly existing sticks and squares (for multiple stacks) can be pushed off onto the subsequent stick handling with the optional stick stickper.


Vacuum destackers are predominantly used in systems with lower cycle rates. To reduce the stack change times our vacuum destackers can optionally be equipped with an intermediate lifter. The intermediate lifter takes the stack over from the main lifting/lowering device, so that the latter can already travel back into take-over position for a new stack.


Our scope of supply includes:


  • Vacuum destackers with stick stickper for stacks with stacking sticks
  • Vacuum destackers for stacks without sticks
  • Vacuum destackers for single or multiple stacks
  • Vacuum destackers with subsequent stick handling
