Palletizers were first introduced to the packaging industry more than 70 years ago. Taking products ready for shipping, high-speed conventional palletizers load them onto a pallet, reducing mistakes and saving on labor costs. More products can be moved and loaded while reducing the number of accidents or injuries.
Although there are many types of palletizer machines (robotic arm, gantry, low and high level, and in-line systems), their jobs are relatively the same. As finished boxes or bags of goods arrive via conveyor belt to the layer forming area, palletizers lift and place them onto a pallet.
Conventional and robotic palletizer systems integrated with conveyors quickly load products onto a pallet and then take the load to the next stage in shipping. This could be to normal storage, cold storage, a shipping dock, and wherever else the products or materials are held until shipping.
Because goods and products come in different sizes, the palletizers need to be programmed for specific shapes, sizes, and stability of the load. Once stacked, the pallet full of goods is then eased onto a conveyor belt to a staging area or moved by other means. In some cases, stretch wrap is used to increase stability.
For more than five decades, Storee Construction has been designing and installing conveyor systems as well as other production upgrades and other industrial solutions. Palletizing solutions are a great way to increase productivity and increase the number of goods transferred from one packaging area to the next.
Our engineering team will ensure your plant is optimized for palletizer use and provide layout flexibility to allow for future growth. In the past, loading products manually was time-consuming and imperfect. With today’s floor-level palletizers and other automation, Storee Construction makes your shipping plant much more effective.
