Australis Engineering HSLP-60 high-speed linear palletiser
The HSLP-60 is a high-speed linear palletiser designed to palletise PET bottles onto preformed plastic trays at rates of 60 pallets/h.
The machine can help beverage manufacturers increase palletising throughputs in a market where both manufacturers and retailers move towards the common use of multipurpose, re-usable plastic pallet trays for PET soft drink and juice bottles.
The palletiser has a quad head that allows simultaneous pick and place of bottles and trays onto two pallets. The quad head achieves 300 bottles/min while minimising machine movements and speed, resulting in less stress on fast-moving components and greater operational reliability with less downtime.
Vacuum or mechanical pickups automatically space bottles into alignment for tray placement and also allow four individual trays to be picked off two separate pallets. At both the tray pick and bottle place locations, the integrated pallet conveyor’s lift mechanism raises a conveyor to minimise head travel, thereby improving cycle time.
Tray stability is achieved with the use of retracting fingers that lock the bottles in place immediately after placement. The fingers remain until the bottle tray is placed; they then retract and a pneumatic clamp securely holds the tray ready for the next placement of bottles.
By holding the tray, the entire stack remains in position and fully vertical. Even if the line stops, the tray will not ‘pop off’ the bottle caps, the company says.
