Palletizer for operation in harsh plant environments
A-B-C’s new stainless steel palletizer is the solution for harsh plant environments with high humidity or moisture or corrosive factors caused by some foods, beverages, chemicals, fertilizers and feeds. It is washdown safe with components to NEMA 4X specifications and stainless steel construction.
“This palletizer is designed to reduce operating costs for packagers with corrosive plant environments as it is built to withstand harsh operating conditions with minimum maintenance,” said Bryan Sinicrope, VP sales and marketing of A-B-C Packaging Machine Corporation. “Where plant conditions are corrosive, traditional machine life can be limited, and this palletizer is the solution. It is also designed for plants with wash-down requirements. This palletizer provides a high speed solution with case palletizing speeds to 50 cases/minute and bag palletizing speeds to 4 layers per minute.”
The Model 72AGSS is built for performance with a heavy gauge frame that is welded and bolted for maximum strength and durability. The elevator table is reinforced with crossbar beams to eliminate load stress and the table edges are gently tapered to ensure stable layer transfer. The table is counterweighted to eliminate drive motor stress. Vertical transfer of the elevator table is powered by variable frequency motor drive that eliminates hard starts and stops that can cause component wear.
The Model 72AGSS is a low level palletizer that is built for increased speed capability with continuous feed and layer accumulation during sweep transfer. Each layer is squared before transfer to the pallet to ensure secure palletloads, and a tapered transfer table enables Depending on the case and pallet configuration, it can palletize up to 50 cases per minute. This palletizer runs cases, bags, trays, totes, or multipacks in multiple pallet patterns, all pre-programmed for quick changeover.

Pallet dispenser ensures optimum palletizing efficiency
The Model 601 Pallet Dispenser with a novel side-clamp design that grips and lifts the entire stack to allow the bottom pallet to feed independently from the stack to the palletizing station. This design is proven to enhance palletizing efficiency, as it allows the dispenser to run pallets with protruding nails or loose boards, while minimizing further pallet damage and eliminating handling concerns during warehousing and shipping.
The side clamp design is a superior handling method, compared to traditional hydraulic dispensers that use a pusher ram to strip pallets from the bottom of the stack, which can cause additional damage to imperfect pallets.
This compact, self-contained unit offers a solid steel frame with barrier guarding, a heavy-gauge, chain-driven pallet handling mechanism, and motorized lift and clamp devices, providing 1000 lb. lift capacity and maximum 15 pallet load. Operation is automatic, with up to 3 pallets per minute fed upon signal or command. The electric motor drive is precisely controlled by an Allen-Bradley Micrologic PLC.
Offering maximum versatility, this unit operates with any packaging machine requiring automatic pallet feed, including case, bag, and robotic palletizers, large tote and super sack fillers; it can also operate as an empty pallet stacker/accumulator at the outfeed of case or bulk depalletizers. It is designed to fit all palletizer and depalletizer styles, and is equipped with chain pallet feed conveyor (roller conveyor is also available.) Two versions are offered, for small or large pallets.
