Full automatic empty bottle Palletizer/stacker machine in high speed

Below, some of the palletizing equipment that is most commonly used in palletizing and end-of-line packaging will be briefly described.


Pallet ConveyorThere is palletizing equipment that makes it possible to automate the process of loading and unloading pallets from the palletizing system, in order to expedite and streamline the machine, eliminating time losses related to manual operations. Typically a pallet conveyor is built with rollers, if the pallet is moving parallel to the wide side; or with chains, if the pallet is moving parallel to the narrow side. This type of palletizing equipment is widely used in industry due to its robustness and simplicity and to the low cost of purchase and maintenance.


Pallet Stacker - Pallet DispenserPallet Stacker – Pallet DispenserPallet stackers and pallet dispensers are devices that allow the accumulation and distribution of pallets automatically as needed. This palletizing equipment is increasingly common in the industry, particularly in the case of highly automated palletization, because they allow the palletizing machine to be automatically supplied, avoiding the downtime associated with manually loading empty pallets.


Pallet Shuttle CarThe pallet shuttle car is a piece of palletizing equipment that can be used as a means for taking a full pallet out of a palletizer at the same time that an empty pallet is supplied to the same palletizer. Similarly, with this palletizing equipment, the pallet can be moved automatically between the various palletizing stations, eliminating forklift traffic between the various end of line packaging zones, palletizing stations and warehouses.

Features & Application

The need to palletize bottles (whether glass or plastic, full or empty) in order to reduce the costs of transport and logistics is growing in many sectors of industry, from food to glass. The manual palletizing solution is no longer acceptable both for its low efficiency and for its high labor cost. In the last decade, the use of the automatic bottle palletizers has spread, ever more widely.
These particular types of palletizers are built specifically for palletizing bottles and can achieve work rates unimaginable for manual palletizing. From the construction point of view, these palletizing machines are divided into layering bottle palletizers and robotic bottle palletizers. In the case of layering bottle palletizer, an entire layer of bottles is pre-formed on a special surface (preformation table) and then the layer of bottles is stacked on the pallet.
As for the robotic bottle palletizer, this is a robot (usually anthropomorphic) which is in charge of picking and placing bottles on the pallet. In this case the picking can be done either from the preformation table or directly from the bottle conveyor belt. Taking advantage of the high speed modern robots can work at and of the special grippers for picking the bottles (for example with devices for the quincequonce of rows), it is possible to eliminate pre-forming the layer of bottles, with countless advantages in terms of the performance and flexibility of the palletizing system. Usually, the gripper of a robotic bottle palletizer is also equipped with devices that allow the handling of pallets and packing materials (slipsheets, caps, etc.). The robotic bottle palletizer is also proposed as an alternative to traditional bottle palletizers in cases where the space in the plant is limited: a palletizer robot is less bulky than a traditional bottle palletizer.
