Stack Tracker

Available in a Standard and Safety version, MPI is proud to offer the safest manually operated Sheet Separator on the market. With the operator in mind, these units properly separate sheets while eliminating pinch points during operation. MPI’s Stack Tracker is manufactured to meet the demanding needs of metal forming production environments. The Stack Tracker significantly increases uptime by eliminating the possibility of double sheets when handling oily, sticky or pre-finished blanks in automated stamping, forming and shearing operations.

How the Stack Tracker Works:

It utilizes one of the basic laws of magnetics: like poles repel and opposites attract. By inducing “like” magnetic fields into a stack of steel sheets or plates, repelling forces are created from sheet to sheet. This forces them to separate. When a stack is positioned, the magnet is then turned on and sheeting fanning occurs, requiring no operator interface with the magnets.

Simply slide the housing over the pin and attach the Tracker to the side of the stack of blanks, near the top. As blanks are removed, the Tracker will work its way to the bottom of the stack, fanning individual blanks as it moves.
