Palletizer Solutions for Beverage Packaging
Robotic palletizer machines will build the outlined pattern on the pallet itself by picking the bottles from the conveyor and placing them onto the pallet, building layer by layer.
It is not unusual for frequent changeovers to occur in the beverage industry and this could potentially slow down or halt production. By automating case assembly, with solutions such as area safeguarding or barcode recognition, beverage packaging remains fast-paced and productive. Using automatic devices instead of manual labor also reduces the risk of injury to employees and saves companies time and money.
Shipping containers are often labeled with barcodes in order to more easily identify which product is present and ready to be shipped. A sensing solution needs to be present to confirm that the final, shrink-wrapped product is labeled correctly and matches the content inside.
Safeguarding areas around the palletizers and stretch wrappers can prove to be difficult because it involves multiple hazards. A scalable safety controller can help manage hazards related to the palletizer and stretch wrapper while ensuring efficient safeguarding processes.
A leading manufacturer of labeling equipment offers high-speed shrink sleeve label applicators designed to process 800 bottles per minute. To maximize the machine’s performance potential, the company wanted to install sensors capable of consistent detection and output for high-speed bottling.
