The Stick Placer manufactures that we have controlled are McKeeCo Engineering and Acora Reneco, both using a similar robotic style arm to pick up sticks from a lugged chain deck and to place on the layer of timber at the end of a stacker.


 This system is design to run in a fully automatic mode only due to the interlocking required between the stacker and the stick placer. There are manual switches that are for maintenance and to initialise start up. Operator interface is shared with the stacker for pack length and layers between sticks.
