Intelligrated announces Robotic Arm Retrofits for Alvey Palletizers
Retrofits are completed on-site by removing the slat divider and existing case turners from the Alvey in-line case palletizer and installing one or two robotic arms for pattern forming. Intelligrated offers each customer a choice of robotic arm OEM and operating software. Every robotic retrofit includes design and manufacturing of end-of-arm tooling, OIT (Operator Interface Terminal) screens, infeed conveyor and PLC programming.
Flexible pattern forming from the OIT allows operators to handle changing packages and multiple SKUs quickly and easily. Patterns can be programmed to orient high-graphic packaging, creating ready-to sell pallets quickly and easily. With quick product reconfiguration and instant line changeovers, the Alvey Robotic Retrofit achieves gentle packaging rates in excess of 100 cases per minute.
