Integrated Control Solutions work with TRANSPAK,one of the leading suppliers to the packaging industry of automated handling systems and machinery. Their extensive range of machines enables us to offer everything from single machines up to fully integrated automatic systems. With many installations throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, and over 50 years experience behind them, we can demonstrate that we have what it takes to give our customers reliable and efficient solutions to their systems requirements.
Product infeed is at 90 degrees with respect to the direction of translation of the layer. This type of palletiser may well be considered the most traditional of all, in that it is based on a commonly used method for layer forming and handling. These palletisers are defined 90 degree infeed palletisers because the product arrives perpendicularly with respect to the direction of layer translation, that is, with respect to the direction of movement of the pusher that transfers the layer of products onto the pallet. Palletisers with 90 degree infeeds are generally smaller sized as compared to in-line palletisers.
In-Line Palletisers with low level infeed:
Product infeed and layer forming take place along the same direction of movement. This series comprises some of the fastest machines in the world and represents the ideal choice for various high-end applications. Product infeed and layer forming take place along the same direction of movement. Unlike 90 degree palletisers, there is no downtime during the layer forming cycle, so the maximum machine speed is generally higher.
High and low level infeed: how to choose? Choosing the type of pallet management, either high or low level, may be based on many variables. Without presuming to provide a definitive decision-making tool, the main features and advantages of the two alternatives are illustrated here.
High level infeed machines with mobile pallet allow for greater productivity. Layer forming and, therefore, the final part of the route followed by the products, takes place overhead, leaving free passage areas before the palletiser. This type of machine layout allows for superior optimisation of ground space.
Low level palletisers are usually more accessible than high level palletisers. All man-machine interactions, for maintenance or any other activity on board the machine, are facilitated by the fact that the machine is at ground level. This also ensures better machine visibility on behalf of the operators, who do not have to change level to inspect the machine during the normal operating cycle.
Robot Palletisers have been evolving rapidly over the last few years. Robots have traditionally offered a flexible solution for low speed production lines. However, current models with 450Kg payloads have enabled full layer picks on most products allowing a Robotic Palletiser to match production
Automatically unload and align all kinds of palletised glass, metal and plastic containers, its operation is practical and reliable. The containers are swept off the pallet layer by a clamp and carriage system and are unloaded onto a conveyor table which feeds the containers inline to the rest of the filling line. Wide flexibility and great reliability are the main features of this machine. Format changeover operations are quick and maintenance is very minimal.
Integrated Control Solutions Ltd offers a wide range of pallet conveyor products to create customised pallet handling systems for manual, semi or automatically loading, unloading and accumulation or feeds to and from machinery such as stretch wrappers, stretch hooders, strappers, etc. These can be based on modular designs to provide a simple and cost effective installation or alternatively, a bespoke solution can be proposed.
Modern logistic solutions often involve storage in marshalling areas or within pallet racking. They can also incorporate systems for automatic pallet movement and buffers. Efficient logistical movement of pallets within a modern warehouse often calls for a complete integrated solution including pallet conveyors and ancillary handling equipment.
