Chick box stackerChick box stacker


For the safe, stable stacking of full chick boxes directly from the chain conveyor. Typically used at the end of a chick counting and boxing line, the chick box stacker smoothly and automatically stacks boxes full of valuable chicks prior to loading for transport to the chick holding area.

The system easily handles fully loaded chick boxes, but can also be used for stacking empty chick boxes. Operator friendly, easy to run and maintain for long life and easily cleaned using high pressure equipment. 

How it works

  • Chick boxes with valuable day old chicks are individually transported into the stacker
  • As soon as a box arrives inside the stacking unit, it is lifted and the next full chick box is positioned underneath
  • The lifted chick box is then placed carefully on top of the lowest chick box on the conveyor belt
  • The bottom box is then lifted, together with the previously stacked boxes, above the conveyor again
  • This operation is repeated until the desired height of stacked boxes is achieved. At this point, the entire stack is released for further transport on the discharge conveyor
