Westfalia has two dairy case stack palletizer models ("on floor" and "above floor"). This video will show the "on floor" model. The stacks are released from order pick conveyors and travel single-file to the palletizer infeed. Stacks are released in groups of 3 into the infeed stack pusher zone, and are then transferred onto a pallet slip plate by a horizontal hydraulic powered pusher. The slip plate eliminates "stack-on-pallet" interference regardless of the pallet board orientation and reduces stack tipping due to damaged boards. Empty pallets are transferred from MT pallet dispenser and pushed under split plate by a horizontal chain pusher unit. Then 9-stacks are accumulated on the slip plate, a second pusher unit moved the group and pallet together, while the slip plate remains stationary. This motion eliminates stack-to-pallet relative motion and always positions the stacks in the center of the pallet. As the loaded pallet moves forward, it passes through a horizontal Bander/Strapper unit that places 2 load stabilizing straps on the pallet load. A "tree-light" at the single lane infeed to palletizer senses the overall height of each stack and the strapper then automatically adjusts the dual band height to 1 of 3 positions. Completed pallets are removed by a pallet jack or a fork truck.
