Hatcher basket stackerHatcher basket stacker


The hatcher basket stacker automatically stacks chick boxes prior to positioning them in the storage area. Easy to run and operator-friendly, with very low noise/ vibration emissions, the stacker is typically used at the end of a hatcher basket washing line.

Designed for the smooth and controlled stacking of baskets, its IP Marking allows for the handling of wet baskets prior to drying and storage. Constructed of stainless steel , the hatcher basket stcaker can be cleaned with high- pressure equipment and requires zero-to-minimal maintenance for a long life. An easy operating control unit is included.

How it works

  • After washing, empty baskets are individually transported into the stacker
  • As soon as a basket arrives inside the stacking unit, it is lifted so that the next basket can be transported and positioned underneath
  • The lifted basket is then lowered carefully onto the basket underneath on the conveyor and the whole stack is lifted, for another basket to be placed underneath once again
  • This operation is repeated until the desired stack height is achieved - When the stack reaches the correct height, it is released for further transport on the discharge conveyor
