Pallet aligner in the material flow system
Pallet aligners are an essential part of material handling systems. For example, they are used in warehouses and factories to position pallets safely and efficiently to facilitate pallet circulation. Pallet aligners automate the processing of pallets at destination while minimizing downtime when handling heavy pallets. There are different types of pallet aligners, each with their own specific needs.
What are centering stations?
Centering stations are an essential part of modern material flow systems. They are used to scan and verify goods and products on their way to their destination to ensure the reliability of delivery and the condition of the goods. Centering stations are able to scan multiple items at once and run multi-step processes as needed. Therefore, they support cost savings through minimized human intervention while offering a better standard of quality. These systems make a significant contribution to the efficiency of modern material flow.
Pallet doubler in the material flow
Pallet doublers, also known as pallet handlers, are an efficient way to manage material flows. This type of computer controlled device automatically moves pallets from one station to the next and allows changeover operations such as splitting and assembling pallets within the pallet handling system. Pallet doublers significantly reduce the time required as the switch from manual handling to automation has been made. It not only saves labor but also increases productivity and overall safety and security of your pallet.
What are drum palletizers?
Drum palletizers are machines that efficiently move drums or other containers on pallets. They offer an optimal way of transporting kegs without liquid or container quantity restrictions as the kegs are stacked in reusable keg pallets, which are ideal for deliveries and goods shipment. Drum palletizers can transport drums standing or lying down and use advanced technologies to ensure full safety when handling drums. With this system, any workflow can be completed more quickly, increasing the efficiency of the operation.
What are conveyor carriages?
Transfer carriages form a central element of modern material flow systems. They are used to transport goods and goods over shorter and longer distances. Transfer cars are very versatile in terms of the type and size of loads they can carry. There are transfer cars for special tasks such as trucks, station linking and heavy-duty transfer cars. Transfer cars are available both as manual modules and as automated solutions that can react to spatial structures or progress plans. Modern transfer cars are equipped with tracking systems and other optional features such as drive systems, on-board computers or individual drives. Transfer cars therefore enable companies to use the hardware in the best possible way with an efficient workflow of the entire material flow system.
Material flow systems: pallet magazine
Pallet magazine is an efficient material handling system that can receive, transport and store pallets. It has many applications in modern industrial operations, particularly in areas such as warehousing, shipping and packaging, and within supply chain logistics. A pallet magazine enables automated picking during loading and unloading, resulting in a more efficient production and delivery process chain. Pallet magazines are particularly useful when handling pallets of different sizes and weights, as they offer modular structures with variable dimensions via kits and segments.
Pallet turning stations for special needs
Pallet turning stations are a versatile technology that can handle multiple pallets at once in material handling systems. This solution enables companies to manage their material flow effectively and efficiently and is part of a series of expandable technological components tailored for specific industrial applications. Pallet turning stations vary in size, load capacity and other factors depending on the use case, allowing companies to accelerate, manually rotate and reposition pallets according to logistics needs.
Pallet conveyor systems and the vertical conveyor
Elevated conveyors, also known as descending chain conveyors, are a very efficient way of transporting materials in modern material handling systems. They are mainly used in the automotive, small parts and electronics industries. Vertical conveyors are mainly used in the vertical connection area of production lines and warehouses. Drop chain conveyors are quiet, energy efficient and require little maintenance. In addition, the intensity of the conveying process can be adjusted to given requirements with the help of variable speed control and stop or drive functions. Vertical conveyor technologies thus represent an essential component of modern material flow systems.
