  • Functions

    Smooth pack/case handling and reliable layer preparation

    • Layer preparation with belt conveyor for accurate handling of instable packs.
    • No pusher: carriage simply based on its inertia.
    • High friction belt to allow smooth layer transfers, suitable for any type of product surfaces.
    • Additional layer accumulating table for high speed applications.
    • Vertical moving belt conveyor taking the already formed layer and transferring it to the roller head.

    Layer handling by central column concept with roller head

    Central column

    • Double lifting unit on a single column.
    • Brush less self braking motors equipped with an encoder for the vertical movement.
    • Simple motion technology: armored driving belts, no chains.

    Roller head

    • Composed with a motorized rollers table and 4 lateral compacting guides driven by brush less motors.
    • Transfer in roller head based on layer inertia (no additional motorization and pusher needed).
    • Head opening in 2 halves to release the layer onto the pallet/standing layer.

    Central pallet conveyor

    • Empty pallet stopped by mechanical retainer pneumatically driven.
    • Presence and correct positioning of the pallet done by 2 safety photocells.

  • Additional
