Palletizers & depalletizers for automatic palletizing

High-performance processes with palletizers for effective intralogistics (palletizing and depalletizing)

When loads are to be received, transported or dispatched without pallets in intralogistics, Baust’s high-performance palletizing and depalletizing systems provide the key technology. Especially in outbound areas for shipping in oversea containers, enormous transport volumes and pallet costs can be saved by excluding pallets. Here, the depalletisers can push any loads off the pallets much faster, safer and cheaper than manual or robot-assisted unloading. In addition to the pushing method, the clamping or pulling method can be used as an alternative, depending on the pallet and the load. The areas of application of depalletisers and palletisers are oriented towards automated conveyor systems and storage systems with high throughputs in the food, pharmaceutical, logistics, cosmetics and chemical industries.

Your advantages with Baust palletizing and depalletizing systems:

  • Palletless export shipping saves transport volume and pallet costs
  • No more problems caused by wooden pallets: dirt, control, maintenance, replacement, downtime, malfunctions
  • Maximum customization to your requirements with the processes: Pushing, clamping and pulling with palletizing machine
  • Use of low-cost, space-saving slipsheets for push-pull forklift attachments instead of pallets
  • Up to 5 times faster than other palletizing systems: robot palletizer (robotic palletizing systems), gantry palletizer, layer palletizer

High-speed palletizing and depalletizing (automatic palletizing) by palletizers & depalletizers

The depalletizing with the sliding method starts with the infeed of the loaded pallet. The back wall and the side walls of the depalletizer close against the load. Gently, quickly and safely, the complete load is pushed from the pallet onto the slightly deeper target conveyor.

In conventional depalletizing systems (depalletizers), this process only takes place layer by layer or even piece by piece. Further transport of the load now takes place without pallets on belt or special roller conveyors. The empty pallet is removed directly to the side of the depalletiser and can be stacked in a pallet magazine. This is what an effective depalletizing process with up to 80 cycles per hour looks like. The palletizing process runs accordingly the other way around.

The clamping and pulling palletisers round off Baust’s portfolio and are also based on handling the entire load stack in one cycle step.

    Exporting internationally with a modern depalletizer

    Today, countless goods are shipped abroad every day by overseas container. Intralogistics for these operations must not only observe the most efficient transport routes and loading processes possible, but also ensure a high standard of safety and implement cost savings without reducing transport security. An important part of these optimized intralogistics is palletless transport, which both saves costs and avoids various problems caused by wooden pallets when shipping abroad. Palletizers are the name given to the devices that enable particularly fast and safe separation of goods and pallets. Alternatively, manual methods of packing are sometimes used, as well as robot-assisted packing.

    The advantages of a palletizer or depalletizer

    When using this modern device in intralogistics and export shipping, you have several advantages over manual and robot-assisted methods. For one thing, this automatic palletizer can operate up to five times faster than outdated systems and can also be perfectly adapted to the goods in question. A palletizer can remove the load from the pallet using the pull method as well as the clamp method. The methodology here also depends on the product and is chosen in such a way that you do not risk damaging the goods or letting them slip during transport.

    Depalletizers – location and technical data

    Since palletizers belong to the automation of warehouse logistics and intralogistics, they are especially relevant for companies when high throughput of goods occurs. The automated storage systems and conveyors are mainly found in the food and cosmetics industries. However, depalletizers can also be interesting for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries when exports with high transport volumes need to be efficiently implemented. Loading and unloading works by forklift or conveyor and a palletizer can withstand a total weight of up to 1200 kg. Also the dimensions are by far sufficient for standard pallets, but a maximum height of 2000 mm can also be exploited.

    Palletizers: Why palletless export is becoming increasingly important

    You may be wondering why depalletizers need to be used at all, when wooden pallets are such an important part of warehouse and transport logistics. When it comes to export shipments, and especially overseas containers, the long storage time in a confined space can cause one or two problems, which is why palletizers can make export operations less complicated. Wooden pallets not only get dirty quickly, but also need to be checked regularly and maintained and repaired as needed. Especially with a large transport volume and optimal use of space, this is almost impossible to do.

    Step by step – How the depalletizer works

    In the depalletizing process, the loaded pallet is first conveyed in. Then the palletizer automatically closes the rear wall, as well as the side walls, which contact the load in such a way as to ensure safe yet gentle transport. For high-speed palletizing, the use of an appropriate system is essential, because many outdated systems require many times the time, as goods are only depalletized layer by layer or even piece by piece. Afterwards, roller conveyors or link conveyors take over the further transport. The empty pallet is also discharged as a matter of course, so there is no need for any additional manual work or interruption. With 80 cycles per hour, the depalletizer operates at high speed and thus ensures immense time savings in the long term.
