Mach FTD presents a new palletizing solution, which consists of the design, execution, and implementation of an automatic canister palletizing line.
The automatic canister palletizing line was created to optimize the tertiary palletizing and packaging process, and to provide a work environment suitable for the human workforce.
From the point of view of the workflow, the canisters are taken from the production line to the palletizing cell by means of a conveyor with an accumulation and centering function. After positioning the products, the robot picks the canisters, stabilizes them during handling, and places them accurately on the pallet. The precise positioning of the canisters ensures their integrity in the later transport phases.
After completing the pallet, it is transported to the packing and labeling area. An automatic stretch wrapping machine applies stretch foil to the pallet, and in the next step a print & apply labeling system applies a side label for subsequent identification and traceability of the pallet.
The packed pallets are then picked up with the forklift and transported to the storage area.
The line is operated by a PLC that can be monitored and controlled from an automation panel, designed, and built by the Mach FTD team. It is equipped with an HMI screen for user interface, acoustic and light signaling to warn the status of the system, a general ON / OFF button, Start / Stop button, indicator lights for the presence of supply voltages, a button for emergency stop, inverters for motor control, and so on. All motors and sources are protected from overload and short circuits, and any interaction with the security system will instantly stop the operation of the area.
A priority goal in the design and implementation of the system was to ensure the highest safety conditions at work. The components of this line are composed of standard equipment, as well as specific modules designed and manufactured by Mach FTD
The automatic palletizing and tertiary packaging line for pallets represents a very useful solution in factories where:
This is not only an efficient solution from Mach but also comes with the right complementary services that our customers have come to expect from us.
