Palletizing Solutions for High Demands
The PA 8 palletizer is suitable for consumer products in packs, cases, crates, bags, etc. The unique advantages of this palletizer are reflected in its high output rate and precise operation in producing the exact pallet configuration required.
The palletizer versions PA 81 and PA 82 are based on the PA 8 base model. PA 81 can carry heavier pallet loads and the pallets run through lengthwise – important when palletizing bags. PA 82 is designed to handle very heavy pallet loads and pallets can run either lengthwise or crosswise. A typical application for the PA 8 palletizer is found in the Hygienic Paper Industry where the standard palletizer palletizes both bundles and small packs. Size changeovers are done without tools and take only a few minutes. Minimum space requirement facilitates the integration of the machine into existing production lines. The modular palletizer design adapts easily to any given layout. Pallet and product transportation with Langhammer conveyor technology, interfaced with a group of palletizers, form a palletizing center resulting in an optimal materials handling system.
Function Products are rotated and orientated in the infeed section as programmed in the HMI. The former pusher transfers the product in sections onto the sliding plate until a full layer has been completed. This sliding plate is located directly over the pallet bay. It opens and transfers the complete layer onto the pallet below, the pallet lift lowers the individual layers one by one, the sliding plate closes and the formation of the next layer begins. Depending on the program selected, an intermediate sheet is now placed onto the new layer. Intermediate sheets can either come off a pallet, a roll or a dispenser. Discharge of the full pallet and positioning of the next empty one is effected automatically.
