Lego Stacker

The very first movie I ever made with the TRV-900 from work was this 1 minute video of my then (August 2001) most recent LEGO invention, the radio controlled, two bin LEGO stacker.

The stacker has an automatic sheet feeder, one radio controlled diverter, two hand cranked hoists and a main drive which is radio controlled as well.

The main drive powers the feeder wheel, the mechanism that makes it move up and down and all the belts conveyors (rubber bands :-)),

The motivation to create this intricate LEGO design was to demonstrate that veneer sheet feeding and stacking is possible without using noisy and expensive vacuum boxes.

My model worked fantastically but Raute never implemented this technology, no wonder they are going to the shits.
