The Flex palletiser has been developed to respond to the market requirements for high speed, flexibility and compactness of the palletizing section of the modern production lines. The heart of the machine is the robot (4 or 6 axis, according to the application) which picks up the incoming cases and places them on the pallet, according to a pre-set pattern already stored in the machine memory.
The robot is flexible and very fast: picking up individual cases, ink-jet, labelling or weighing them before placing them on the pallet. All this can be done even at high speed. The machine can be equipped with large capacity and empty pallet magazine with automatic handling of empty and full pallets. Due to its modular design, the pallet handling section can be customized according to the requirements of the end user.
A simpler version is also available, with a dual position empty pallet loading station. The machine can be supplied as a stand alone unit or connected to an IMA side loading case-packer, particularly where space is at a premium.
The machine also features a standard PLC unit which interacts with the robot processor, thereby making operation straightforward. A large and comprehensible operator interface makes change-overs simple and assists with diagnostics. The machine is fully guarded by transparent panels interlocked with safety switches and light curtains in the pallet removal area.
The CP18 and CP28 can be integrated in a solution characterized by reduced dimensions, with the MINIFLEX in order to complete the change-over operations by setting the box on top of a pallet. This solution is characterized by maximum flexibility and compactness: processes a wide range of cartons (single or bundled) and cases in a small space.
