Palletizer at high speed for PET and HDPE bottles
The machine is equipped with two main parts:
- Layer carriage designed to receive bottles from airveyors and move rows of bottles in a pick-up position;
- Robotic pal with gripping head to pick-up layers of bottles and trasfer them onto pallet.
Layer carriage is equipped with a set of pneumatic grippers to hold bottle bodies until they are safely pick-ed up by the robotic head. Its forwarding movement is motorized by a brushless motor. A clutch placed on drive head allows the automatic adjustment of all grippers according to the bottle size in production. The entire carriage is installed on a mechanical hoisting system controlled by an analog linear encoder to allow the height adjustment of all grippers, thus to set the correct pick-up position.
Robotic head includes a mechanical horizontal movement motorized by brushless motor to square bottle rows after the pick-up operation. The job change is fully automatic and performed directly from control console.
