A-B-C: High-speed depalletizer for reverse taper bottles
A-B-C’s Model 108RT depalletizer maintains bottle stability for reverse taper bottles during high-speed transfer from the pallet, and throughout single filing, with devices that square and secure the top pallet layer and also the secondary layer prior to container transfer, and maintain the slipsheet firmly as the top layer is swept from the pallet to the loading table.
In addition, each product load is kept under control on all four sides from the pallet throughout the depalletizing process to contain the bottles in a tight pack, which enhances stability. Bottles are single filed with a conveyor designed to gently “pull” them from the pack and guide them to the line conveyor. Picture frames and slipsheets are automatically removed, separated, and stacked.
The depalletizer’s small footprint provides floor-level operation and offers low-, medium-, or high-level discharge. The open profile helps ensure high visibility of all operations and easy access for maintenance. The depalletizer has a solid channel steel frame and welded and bolted construction. The transfer table is crafted of stainless steel for smooth container transfer. Additional performance features include heavy shafts and industrial roller chain for the sweep drive and elevator drive. Operation and changeover are managed at the touchscreen operator panel, which provides access to real-time operating data, diagnostic reports, and full machine manuals.
