ABC Packaging is promoting a newer, low-level bulk depalletizer as a solution for craft breweries. Model 108 is built with a channel steel frame with welded and bolted construction that eliminates vibration and ensures long machine life.
This machine’s low level design keeps operation, control and maintenance at floor level for maximum convenience and low cost of operation. It has a clean, open profile that ensures high visibility on the plant floor and includes features to maintain total bottle control during layer transfer and discharge.
It features 1-1/4-in. solid shafts on the pallet conveyor and sweep bar drive units, and 1-1/2-in. elevator table drive shaft for strength. Heavy-duty industrial roller chain carries the elevator table. These efficient design and quality production features ensure high volume and reliable operation.
- Run glass and plastic bottles, metal cans and composite containers on one machine
- Changeover requires no tools or change parts
- Multiple features to ensure optimum container stability
- Efficient design and quality production features ensure reliable, high volume operation
This depalletizer runs plastic, glass, aluminum, steel and composite containers interchangeably, with no optional change parts required. It can handle loads up to 110-in. high.
Secondary layer is secured to maintain pallet integrity
As the primary layer is swept from the pallet, the secondary layer is secured on all four sides by pneumatically controlled steel friction plates. Below, the tier sheet is held in place by grippers that hold it securely during sweep off.
Top features to ensure container stability
The sweep carriage that transfers containers from the pallet to the transfer table has four containment devices to ensure bottle stability — two adjustable side plates, a rear sweep bar and front support bar. The precision chain and sprocket sweep mechanism provides long-term reliability and is proven in hundreds of installations worldwide. The elevator table is guided by eight-point location roller bearings and is counter-weighted for smooth vertical operation to maximize container stability.
Choose your level of automation
Many optional features are available to extend depalletizer automation, including an empty pallet stacker, picture frame and slipsheet remover, full pallet conveyor and container single filer. Included in the base price of the machine, this package features:
- PLC electronics for precise control of machine operation
- Pre-programmed case size and pallet layer configurations
- Standard fault detection features
