A-B-C introduces the Model 108RT for high speed depalletizing of reverse taper bottles
Reverse taper bottles can present a depalletizing challenge because their smaller base configuration causes instability during transfer. A-B-C has introduced the Model 108RT, a depalletizer with proprietary features that maintain bottle stability for reverse taper bottles during high speed transfer from the pallet and throughout single filing. These features include devices that square and secure the top pallet layer and also the secondary layer prior to container transfer, and maintain the slipsheet firmly as the top layer is swept from the pallet to the loading table. In addition, each product load is kept under control on all four sides from the pallet throughout the depalletizing process, to contain the bottles in a tight pack, which enhances stability. Bottles are single filed with a conveyor designed to gently “pull” them from the pack and guide them to the line conveyor. Picture frames and slipsheets are automatically removed, separated and stacked.
The depalletizer’s compact design provides economical floor level operation and offers low, medium, or high level discharge. The open profile ensures high visibility of all operation and easy access for maintenance. Built for reliable, long-term operation, this depalletizer has a solid channel steel frame and welded and bolted construction. The transfer table is crafted of stainless steel for smooth container transfer. Additional performance features include heavy shafts and industrial roller chain for the sweep drive and elevator drive. Operation and changeover are managed at the touchscreen operator panel which provides access to real-time operating data, diagnostic reports, and full machine manuals.

New high level bulk depalletizer combines maximum flexibility and economy in compact footprint
New Model 108HL high level bulk depalletizer is the solution for packagers who need reliable depalletizing with top flexibility, easy installation and quick payback. This high level machine smoothly transfers containers from the pallet stack and sweeps them gently onto high level discharge conveyor at speeds to 4 layers per minute. It offers the flexibility to run plastic, glass, aluminum, steel, or composite containers interchangeably with no change parts. It can automatically remove and stack picture frames, tier sheets, inverted trays and pallets.
Top performance is guaranteed by the Model 108HL’s rugged design and quality production features that ensure gentle container handling and quiet operation. As the pallet remains stationery during depalletizing, there is no risk of pallet instability, a common issue with traditional high level depalletizers. Features to ensure positive container handling include four containment devices, and a tiersheet stabilizer, plus a precision chain and sprocket sweep mechanism that maintains container stability even when depalletizing lightweight containers. The Model 108HL offers discharge elevations up to 144”. A low level model is also available with discharge height to 36”.
