Item No. 311

Pallet Dispenser – Medium Duty

Product Description

This machine is the little brother to  our heavy duty pallet dispenser, (item 301, built to run 7/24) because it functions very well on a day to day basis under normal, one or two shift, plant operations. It is an air-over-electric pallet dispenser designed to handle the same size pallet in a stack up to five feet tall. The machine will automatically dispense pallets straight ahead from the bottom of the magazine at a rate of two pallets per minute. Pallets are loaded into the back of the magazine then discharged out the front. A pair of air operated clamps attaches to the second pallet in the stack, allowing the bottom pallet free to convey out of the magazine.

The machine includes a two strand chain discharge conveyor, but can be substituted for a chain driven live roller conveyor, if the bottom boards are running the right way. It can also be adapted to discharge a pallet onto the floor, to accommodate a pallet jack. A taller stack of pallets is also possible with the twenty pallet magazine option.

Specialty Equipment manufacturers the highest quality pallet dispensers, conveyors and filling machinery. All the equipment carries with it a well known reputation for rugged, long lasting construction.
