Columbia: High speed turning technology

Columbia’s patented Variable Position Turner (VPT) technology maximizes speed and flexibility for inline high speed palletizing.

Servos are used to dynamically position the center turners laterally on an in-line palletizer while the layer is being formed. VPT locations are accessed and programmed simply via the HMI. Therefore, new pattern creation and optimizing is extremely user friendly. Fewer turners are required (maximum of four) and when used in conjunction with Columbia’s adjustable lane position technology, pattern forming capability is virtually limitless.

VPT is ideally suited for ultra-high speed applications handling fridge packs, cartons, trays, film-only packages, and many more.
