For applications with reduced primary or secondary packaging, the Alvey 950F and Alvey 750 series hybrid palletizer robots gently handle product to create stable single-SKU or mixed-SKU pallet loads. They can satisfy retail-ready requirements, including labels-out configurations for end-of-aisle displays.
The floor-level model of the 950 series high-speed in-line hybrid palletizer, the 950F, operates similarly to the standard model with the benefit of a floor-level infeed. This enables it to connect with higher-speed production lines, maximizing existing manpower with packaging line personnel supervising palletizing operations and eliminating the need for long overhead conveyor runs.
The mid-speed hybrid palletizer on the market, the Alvey 750 series handles small products for consumer packaged goods, health and beauty, and converted paper applications. The 750 delivers throughput speeds up to 50 cases per minute and features an optional in-hoist stretch bander or wrapper which enhances load stability, improves cost savings, and reduces floor space requirements.
