High Level Cartesian Robot Palletizer
The four-column robot palletizer features a pincer that moves along three Cartesian axes as it rotates around its vertical axis. This permits trouble-free handling of bags that are not completely filled or that contain aerated or powdery material, guaranteeing outstanding flexibility.
The machine consists of a rigid structure. Sliding on the structure vertically is a frame with an incorporated pincer, bag infeed roller conveyor and two sliding trapdoors that act as the layer-formation platform.
The pincer takes one bag at
a time from the roller conveyor and places it on the platform, at a point
assigned by the palletizing program. Once the bag has been deposited, the
pincer returns to the starting position, ready for the next bag. Since
the bags can be placed in any position on the layer-formation platform,
The bags can also be overlapped partially along the top or the side, thus
giving good stability and shape to the palletized load, regardless of their
shape and type (valve, open-mouth, paper, raffia, PE, etc.), how full they
are or the type of material they contain.
Once a layer has been completed, it is compacted on all four sides and the trapdoors open to unload the layer onto the pallet being formed. At this point, the doors open and unload the just-formed layer onto the pallet being made, and the frame that holds it is lowered by the thickness of one layer.
The cycle begins again until the pallet has been completed, at which point the frame descends to the level of the evacuation roller conveyor. Through this roller conveyor, the pallet is ejected and is sent to the parking roller conveyor. At the same time, a new empty pallet will have reached the mobile frame, which is raised to the height of the trapdoors to receive the first layer that has been prepared and start the new cycle.
Program changes are automatic and take just a few seconds, guided by the PLC and the actuators installed on the machine. This makes it possible to handle different formats or use different palletizing patterns in a very flexible manner.
The machine comes complete with an automatic empty-pallet
magazine, an evacuation roller conveyor and a parking roller conveyor for
the finished pallets.
