Intelligrated’s Alvey® Robotic Retrofit Program retrofits 1 or more jointed-arm robots to existing Alvey in-line palletizers to create a hybrid palletizer that combines robotic flexibility and repeatability with the speed and reliability of conventional palletizer layer deposition.
Retrofits provide gentler positioning and rotation of product,
automatic line changeovers, pattern changing flexibility and extended
operational life. Achieves packaging rates in excess of 100 cases/min.
Retrofits are completed on-site. Each customer has a choice of robotic
arm OEM and operating software. Includes design and manufacturing of
end-of-arm tooling, OIT (Operator Interface Terminal) screens, infeed
conveyor and PLC programming.
