March 28, 2019 – Brenton, a product brand of ProMach, debuts the RPX-SW series of modular robotic palletizers integrated with an Orion automatic stretch wrapper at ProMat 2019, April 8-11, McCormick Place, Chicago. The RPX-SW series gives small- to medium-sized businesses the opportunity to advance from manual to automated robotic palletizing and stretch wrapping.
In the RPX-SW series, there are four palletizer configurations, including two with automated pallet handling modules. These RPX-SW robotic palletizers require anywhere from 200 to 350 square feet of floor space, depending on the configuration. RPX-SW palletizers are rated at up to 14 cases per minute. The RPX-SW robot at ProMat loads packaging directly on a slip sheet positioned on the stretch wrapper turntable. In this configuration, the RPX-SW is both a slip-sheet unitizer and/or a palletizer with the addition of a pallet dispenser module.
Each RPX-SW palletizer comes standard with two pack patterns pre-programmed. New pack patterns are entered via touchscreen HMI.
Brenton integrates the robotic cells with the Orion FA, an automatic stretch wrapping system with integrated conveyor turntable. The Orion FA features an IntelleVue touchscreen HMI with a 10-inch screen. IntelleVue allows for changeover, trouble shooting, and load protection. This graphic user interface is geared for today’s multi-language workforce.
Orion Insta-Thread provides 260 percent pre-stretch for minimum film consumption. An electronic corner compensation system assures even tension on all parts of the load. This stretch wrapper is Category 2 safety rated and features structural- and plate-steel construction for long years of service.
