Portal Handling for the Palletizing of Egg Cartons
Sector: Packaging Manufactory
In a paletizer for egg packs, a second handling system was integrated. The portal handling is supplied by two printing lines and works on two pallets, where the stacked egg cartons get palletized with changing packing patterns.
After a modernization of the printing lines, the production output raised and the existing palletizer was too slow in order to load the two pallets. The old Texas Instrument controlling was replaced by an Allen Bradley PLC, which allows to operate both palletizers separately. The movement of the linear axes is almost jerk-free. The performance was also improved, thanks to the additional light and fast handle and linear axis system. The bottleneck was eliminated and additional capacity reserves were created.
