Columbia Machine: Palletizer
Columbia Machine’s SP4000 Palletizer is a small footprint, high-level, high capacity palletizer that forms complex patterns with gaps in both directions.
The SP4000 features a bi-parting stripper apron, articulating row pusher bar, centering side layer guides with Smart Squeeze technology, and Columbia’s new pacer/meter belt. The bi-parting stripper apron combined with the case stops in the row forming area allows the SP4000 to create gaps front-to-back and side-to-side in a layer. An articulating row pusher bar maintains a square position against the row of product, ensuring even and consistent contact with the product. Centering side layer guides with Smart Squeeze technology recognize the correct orientation of the product pattern and maintain product and package integrity. Columbia’s new Dual Direct Drive Pacer/Meter Belt comes standard on the SP4000 and includes a VFD on the pacer belt.
