Palletizer series with enhanced safety, increased capacity
Intelligrated’s Alvey 890i and 891i palletizers feature enhancements designed to make the machines easier to operate and maintain as well as improve safety and while increasing capacity. The models have the ability to handle a wider array of package types and intricate stacking patterns. Operators can create new load configurations through a 10-in. color touch-screen interface while capitalizing on standard features like automatic layer-centering compression dams and package stops that can be relocated or installed in minutes.
Enhancements include semitransparent covers designed for increased visibility during operation. Covers and guards are easy to handle and remove for quick access to components that may require adjustment or replacement through the system lifecycle. The updated design also includes an automatic air dump, high-voltage arc flash protection, remote power disconnect, interlocked access gates, taller safety fences, and a muted light curtain system for pallet discharge.
The 891i features a level, non-pitched layer accumulation table as a buffering mechanism to enable a throughput rate in excess of 60 cases per minute. The 890i achieves a rate of up to 45 cases per minute. Servo technology is also available to further increase capacity or facilitate automatic changeover.
