This depalletizer is built with a channel steel frame with welded and bolted construction that eliminates vibration and ensures long machine life. It features 1-1/4" solid shafts on the pallet conveyor and sweep bar drive units, and 1-1/2" elevator table drive shaft for strength. Heavy duty industrial roller chain carries the elevator table. These efficient design and quality production features ensure high volume, reliable operation.
This depalletizer runs plastic, glass, aluminum, steel and composite containers interchangeably, with no optional change parts required. It can handle loads up to 110" high.
As the primary layer is swept from the pallet, the secondary layer is secured on all four sides by pneumatically controlled steel friction plates. Below, the tier sheet is held in place by grippers that hold it securely during sweep off.
The sweep carriage that transfers containers from the pallet to the transfer table has four containment devices to ensure bottle stability; two adjustable side plates, a rear sweep bar, and front support bar. The precision chain and sprocket sweep mechanism provides long-term reliability and is proven in hundreds of installations worldwide.
The elevator table is guided by 8-point location roller bearings and is counterweighted for smooth vertical operation to maximize container stability.
The motorized support bar travels with the bottle load during sweepoff, to prevent friction from causing bottle instability. The support bar is adjustable to ensure complete bottle containment throughout transfer.
Many optional features are available to extend depalletizer automation, including an empty pallet stacker, picture frame and slipsheet remover, full pallet conveyor, and container single filer.
