Columbia Machine: Conveyor infeed system
Columbia Machine (Vancouver, WA) introduces a heavy-duty conveyor infeed system designed to palletize bulky shrink-wrapped phone books. The floor-level configuration replaces manual stacking lines in publishing plants where heavy books can cause muscle strain and repetitive motion injuries.
System can run at speeds to 40 packs/min. A 2-lane conveyor system merges books from 2 shrink-wrap tunnels into the infeed of the palletizer.
