During stacking, wood packages need to be dried or stabilised for shipping with intermediate sticks. Magazine are filled either manually or automatically with sticks or boards by robots for this purpose. Dual magazines can be fitted for a second stick size. Automatic stick placement is monitored by placement grippers.

MAGAZINE FILLING WITH ROBOTS
Time-consuming filling of stick magazines in this variant is realised by a robot in a patented process that carries out charging at a constant cycle rate and almost without personnel. A stick scanner can be optionally used prior to magazine filling that assesses the quality of the sticks. Only suitable sticks are subsequently separated, packetised and then prepared for robot filling.
