The APS 3090 P ERGON is a “3 in 1” system that integrates, inside the central column's structure, the palletizing, empty pallets feeding and interlayer insertion steps, i.e. the three operations usually performed by separate machines inside their own dedicated space. The integration of these three functions in the central column is made possible by a series of technical innovations devised by SMI designers. Specifically, the horizontal beam on which the layers loading head runs was fitted with a telescopic guides system that allows the beam to move faster on its transverse axis.
In this way, the side of the column that remains clear when the packages are inserted into the loading head is exploited by the system to house the SCARA-technology mechanical unit that manages the flow of pallets and the insertion of the interlayers. This unit essentially consists of an articulated horizontal arm the far end of which is fitted with a gripper for grasping the pallets and a suction cups unit for handling the cardboard interlayers. The arm moves both vertically, sliding on the central column to pick up and release the pallets and interlayers, and horizontally, to transfer the pallets and interlayers from their magazines to the palletizing pallet.
These operations are handled by the machine's automation and control system in perfect synch with the operations performed by the layer-loading head, so that the vertical and horizontal movements of the various mechanical units moving on the central column can follow precise and coordinated trajectories that prevent any contact or interference between them. APS 3090 P ERGON automatic palletizing system features all the advantages of Cartesian axes technology but with reduced machine overall dimensions compared to traditional solutions.
The advanced technology used on the new APS 3090 P ERGON system allowed us to unify the three main palletizing functions in a single work center: picking up the empty pallets, overlapping the layers of packages and inserting the interlayers in between. The integration of these operations within just a few mechanical units, all housed in the central column, substantially reduces the size and dimensions of the system and offers considerable advantages, compared to traditional palletizing systems made up of multiple standalone modules, as far as operating flexibility, work safety and machine maintenance are concerned.
Yet, the compact configuration of the APS 3090 P ERGON allows concentrating the use of forklifts, transpallets, etc. in a well-defined zone, optimizing the management of the loading and unloading areas. In fact, since the pallets and interlayers are handled on the same side of the palletizer, this does not interfere with the other production activities. Thanks to its compact size, the new SMI system can be easily installed even in bottling and packaging lines that have limited space at the end of the line.
The new APS 3090 P ERGON palletizer can be combined with a SMI shrinkwrapper or casepacker to form a PACKBLOC system, that eliminates the connecting conveyors between the two machines and allows you to save on the initial investment and line-end running and maintenance costs.
