Intelligrated Launch New Enhancements for 950 Series Hybrid Palletizers

Intelligrated®, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, launches two new enhancements for its Alvey® 950 series hybrid palletizers.

The new features include an on-board stretch bander that adds stability to otherwise unstable loads and an integrated control system that allows both the conventional palletizer and its robotic arms to operate from a single PLC. Intelligrated’s in-booth demonstrations at PACK EXPO 2012 (booth #2274) showcase an Alvey 952-2, the latest model in the Alvey 950 series, operating with both enhancements.

Ideal for reduced secondary packaging applications that require gentle handling, the Alvey 950 series hybrid palletizer integrates robotic arms with a conventional high-speed palletizer to increase pattern flexibility and facilitate quick product changeover.

Intelligrated’s hoist-mounted stretch bander is well suited for industries with small and lightweight packaging, and can reduce or eliminate the need for tie sheets and stretch wrapping to stabilize loads. The Alvey 950 on-board stretch bander uses fewer consumables than traditional stretch wrapping, reducing both time and material requirements.

Intelligrated’s integrated PLC control platform, now standard for all Alvey 950 series hybrid palletizers, eliminates the need for traditional proprietary robot controllers, streamlining complex control communication, reducing response time and minimizing changeover delays. By maintaining a standard familiar control platform, the integrated PLC control system also reduces startup time, training, programming, hardware and troubleshooting costs.

“Intelligrated has a strong commitment to innovative design and continuous improvement,” said Earl Wohlrab, product manager, palletizing and robotics systems, Intelligrated. “We continue to expand our robotic palletizing capabilities as well as our ability to deliver material handling automation solutions that increase operational productivity.”

In addition to the Alvey 952-2, Intelligrated’s PACK EXPO 2012 in-booth showcase features an Alvey robotic depalletizer and the company’s mixed-load order fulfillment technologies.
