APPLICATIONS FOR THE BI-DIRECTIONAL PALLETISING AND DEPALLETISING SYSTEM
The integration of high-end bi-directional palletising and depalletising system can increase productivity or efficiency within the following industries:
Food & Beverage
Packaging & Palletising
Pharmaceuticals & Neuroceuticals
Plastics & Moulding
KEY FEATURES OF THE BI-DIRECTIONAL PALLETISING AND DEPALLETISING SYSTEM
Multifunctional bottle palletising and de-palletising system can perform various tasks on demand as follows:
De-palletise from pallet to conveyor
Palletise from conveyor to pallet
Use as a buffering system for inline blow moulding as the system will feed bottle as well as palletise bottles as required
Central Control via HMI
One ABB robot equip with a Mexx Universal Bottle Vacuum Head
Automatic multi-pallet infeed and outfeed
System safety interlocked and guarded as per Australian and New Zealand Standards
WHY INVEST IN A BI-DIRECTIONAL PALLETISING AND DEPALLETISING SYSTEM
When a production line becomes congested, the accumulated products from a blow moulder can be diverted by either palletising or depalletising the finished product. The bi-directional functionality of this machine can act as an accumulation buffer in a production line.
One of the best features of this machine is its versatility. It is equipped with the Mexx Universal Bottle Vacuum Head. The vacuum head can handle a large array of suction cups. It allows the ABB robot to pick up any bottle shape or size without any tool change.
The machine can handle various bottle shapes and sizes. The vacuum head can pick up PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles or ACP (Accredited Contract Packager) bottles. There is no need to change vacuum heads. It will adjust to suit any bottle. From a small plastic with 120ml high x 40ml width all the way up to 340ml high x 150ml width. The Mexx Universal Vacuum Head enables a robot to pick up square-shaped and round bottles using a large array of suction cups and manifold pressure. The manifold pressure is consistent. It can pick up 10 pf 1.2 long bottles at the same time.
The Bi-directional Palletising and Depalletising Cube can also be designed with industry 4.0 in mind. It's equipped to handle automatic guided vehicle or AGV. An AGV is a mobile robot that follows markers or wires in the floor or uses vision or lasers. They are often used in industry 4.0 to move stacks of bagged products or stack of layer pads around a manufacturing facility.
