Overview

This automatic machine is a rugged, air- over-electric pail palletizer that will create a stack of 2, or 3, or 4 pails, in any sequence programmed. The palletizer uses a pneumatic upstacker to create the stacks of pails then slides each stack onto a stripper plate that moves up/down, in/out, to place them onto a pallet.

The entire system is designed with seven separate machines;

  • An automatic pallet dispenser to discharge pallets on command
  • The pneumatic upstacker to create a 2, 3, or 4 pail stack
  • The side pusher device that slides each stack onto the stripper plate
  • A retractable steel stripper plate to receive the rows of stacks
  • Four overhead pneumatic stack stabilizers
  • The powered roller infeed pail conveyor
  • The powered roller discharge pallet conveyor

The standard stacking rate is 12 pails per minute, adjustable to 15 per minute. If a second upstacker is used, the rate can double to 30 pails per minute. This machine was built to operate seven days per week, twenty-four hours a day.

Description of Operation

This automatic, air- over-electric pail palletizer will create a stack of 2, or 3, or 4 pails and move them into rows in any sequence it is programmed.

  • Pails will convey and accumulate in line at a pneumatic upstacker mechanism
  • The upstacker will raise a pail to allow clearance for another to be conveyed under it
  • A clamp device will hold the first pail while a second conveys under it
  • The first pail is then lowered onto the second
  • The second pail will be raised, allowing a third to move under it
  • The stack of pails will be moved onto the stripper plate to allow the cycle to repeat
  • A pallet will automatically dispense onto the loading conveyor
  • Each stack has an air operated clamping device to keep it stable until transferred
  • The rows of stacks are moved onto the pallet
  • The stripper plate retracts to allow the row of stacked pails to sit on the pallet
  • The pallet is indexed forward to make room for each new row of pails
  • The loaded pallet will convey downstream allowing a new pallet into position
  • The standard rate is 12 pails per minute, adjustable up to 15 pails per minute
