Effective pallet turner management with a powerful palletizer
The handling system solves the familiar problems faced by all companies which have to load synthetic or metal drums onto pallets – in particular in the chemicals industry or at other filling plants. The Premier palletizing system provides an economical and cost-effective method. The drum palletizer is a fully automated system tailored to customers’ requirements. Varying quantities of synthetic and metal drums can be transferred from one pallet to another without any damage, thus optimizing operational processes.
For a mid-sized company in the food industry, Baust planned and designed a pallet turner with attached conveyor technology. The process is as follows: Integrated light barriers in the palletizer recognize the pallet size. Then two pneumatically movable gripper arms take the pallet from the side. The pallet turner centers it and, if necessary, rotates it by 180°. The pallet is now fully prepared and can be handed over in a central orientation to the conveyor system. Further processing steps, for example, the loading of the pallet, are now possible.
