Masters in palletising, conveying and warehouse automation

Our wide portfolio of industrial services and systems include conventional layer and robot palletisers, pallet conveyors, case conveyors, order preparation systems and automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) and other materials handling equipment. This is complemented by our software package, Maestro+. Automating these procedures creates a more efficient production line with cost-saving, productivity and safety benefits.

How do you decide between multi-line, end of line or robotic palletising?

Deciding which type of palletising is best for your plant is determined by speed, scale and product type. While all palletisers can palletise, some are better suited to certain production requirements than others.

Multi-line palletising is better for limited space and medium-speed production lines, linking several lines to one, or more, palletisation machines. As soon as enough product is ready to fill a complete pallet, the system transports it to the palletisers and takes care of the palletisation. This system can handle multiple product types concurrently.

End of line palletising systems are designed mainly for manufacturing sites with very high production volumes where a dedicated palletiser per line is the optimal solution. Often the product requires careful and supported handling, being fragile and/or heavy.

Robotic palletising is better suited to slower production lines, offering a flexible approach to addressing fluctuating production requirements. It can be located anywhere within the plant and is well suited to working with AGVs.

Trends in palletising and handling logistics of frozen food

The European Frozen Food business is reported to be in excess of €75 billion and all indications are of strong continued growth across all the markets. The vast majority of those products, together with those in the Chilled Foods sector, will spend significant time being transported or stored on pallets.
