Schneider announces Add-a-Pal palletizer
October 20, 2011 - Schneider Packaging Equipment announces Add-a-Pal robotic palletizer. It turns a new or existing Schneider case packer into an economical case packer/palletizer. Using the Schneider case packer’s PLC controls to operate the palletizer, the case packer/palletizer system completes case packing and palletizing functions, even in minimal floor space environments.
Equipped with a FANUC robot capable of up to30 picks per minute, the Add-a-Pal enables high throughput for single or multiple products. Custom End-Of-Arm Tooling (EOAT) options include vacuum, mechanical, fork, or a combination of these with or without pallet hooks and slip sheet handling to pick product, stack in the required pattern and palletize. Pallet handling options include manual to fully automatic pallet exchange with pallet dispenser.
