The co. has enhanced its A-780 case palletizer offering, which is particularly suitable for single-line applications in the food and consumer goods industries, with a selection of new options. A recirculating row pusher improves case flow and facilitates higher palletizing capacities with rates up to 45 case-ft/min. It's offered as an alternative to the palletizer's standard reciprocating row pusher. A high-speed hoist is designed to increase capacity when handling short loads or large cases, and a pattern-generation utility provides users with the ability to create new stacking patterns through the machine's interface. A pattern-timing utility is now standard. The palletizer is equipped with close-center rollers and a bi-parting apron, enabling it to handle a variety of case and pallet sizes. It's RFID-enabled, giving it various capabilities such as changing patterns on-the-fly, managing end-of-run clearing and tracking production and inventory information.
