Columbia Machine’s FLD2500 palletizer utilizes a dual hoist concept and an electric overhead row pusher. The dual hoist format, when combined with a roller style layer stripper apron, allows the footprint to be reduced significantly (40%) over floor level palletizers with similar throughput capacity.
The movement and positioning of each hoist is numerically controlled using servo technology. This allows for faster and more accurate machine movements leading to greater throughput and easier set up and programmability.
The FLD2500 is capable of palletizing virtually any package type including unwrapped trays, film only bundles, plastic totes, RPCs and many others too.
Options include fully integrated stretch wrapping, Smart Diagnostics with video playback to assist maintenance personnel in identifying the cause of a machine stoppage and a servo actuated touchless turning infeed for gentle package handling, display ready case orienting or 4 way “labels out” layer forming (and several more options).
The FLD2500 features Columbia Machine’s safety and guarding system that includes Category 3, Performance Level D safety components and incorporates fully integrated guarding, full height light curtains, automatic hoist pins, case infeed tunnel and interlocked load building area access doors.
