For packagers who use a single tier sheet for pallet stabilization, A-B-C has introduced an economical tier sheet placer. Designed to place a single sheet between middle layers of a palletized load to aid stability, this tier sheet placer may also be utilized to place a single top sheet on palletloads if required. Constructed of heavy gauge tubular steel, the device is fixed to the palletizer elevator column.
It utilizes six independent vacuum cups to ensure positive pick-up and placement of tier sheets, and offers a 17 overall stroke for tier sheet placement. It is electronically operated, and no adjustment is required for changeover to different tier sheet dimensions. The tier sheet placer is equipped with an adjustable, free-standing bin, which holds up to 18 of stacked tier sheets.
