Advanced palletiser incorporates unique software20 June 2013
Automation solutions specialist Sewtec has launched a fast, compact and flexible robotic palletiser ideal for high volume packing lines in industries such as pharmaceuticals, medical devices, cosmetics and personal care, confectionery and FMCG markets.
With most palletising systems, operators use stand-alone pallet configuration software and the resulting layout then has to be programmed into the palletisers control system. The Sewtec Palletiser features built-in software where the dimensions of the pack are inputted directly into the machine which automatically works out and adjusts itself to the most appropriate format. This allows changeovers to be carried out in a matter of minutes.
The flexible design enables two pallets to be loaded in quick succession or simultaneously from different lines. In addition, for applications where a layer card is required, these can be accessed from the second pallet position for automatic placing during the loading of the pallet.
