Box palletiser eliminates potential OH&S issues in Victoria
25/07/2012 - A box palletiser was recently commissioned for a contract packaging company in Victoria to increase plant efficiency.
Supplied by Accuweigh's Springvale branch in Melbourne, the Box Palletiser also addressed potential OH&S issues by eliminating the need for staff to be repetitively bending and twisting while stacking cartons onto pallets.
The estimated payback term of the Fuji-Ace EC-171 Box Palletising Machine was to be approximately eighteen months due to a combination of reduced staff expected along with increased product throughput. Fuji-Ace Box Palletisers are Japan's highest selling brand of palletiser which is why Accuweigh distributes this particular product.
The EC-171 Box Palletiser features a large working envelope while maintaining a small rotation radius to allow it to perform a wider range of palletising duties than many opposition models. A custom hand gripper assembly allows the Fuji-Ace Box Palletiser to be programmed to lift either one or two cartons at a time.
Configured for dual palletising cell operation allows cartons to be transferred to pallets positioned in two separate locations to further streamline working efficiency. When one pallet is fully loaded, the Box Palletiser automatically stacks the alternate pallet to allow the completed pallet to be removed and replaced by an empty pallet.
