Floor Level Palletizer FAQs
Package / product infeed elevation is usually at 36" above the floor for a Floor Level palletizer. Complete loads of product are built by forming rows of product which become complete layers. Once a layer is formed, it is placed on the pallet or the previous layer until a complete load is formed.
All machine access, viewing and maintenance can be conveniently done from the floor.
Most Floor Level infeed palletizers bring product into the machine at roughly 36". Specific patterns are created by orienting packages to form rows of product. The rows of product are combined to form complete layers of product in a specific predetermined pattern. Complete loads are built by placing the desired number of layers on top of one another.
Palletizer sizing is a function of desired production rate (cases per minute), layer patterns and machine and facility layout.
Automating the end of a production line is a necessity when the rate is too high for workers to safely build loads of finished goods by hand. when the finished load is somewhat tall (above shoulder height) or if there is a risk to injury due to repetitive motion activity.
Maintenance requirements are very low but will vary by application to some degree. Operations that are somewhat dusty or that run 3 shifts per day and 7 days a week will require more frequent maintenance. Typical annual maintenance may include conveyor drive belt replacement or perhaps a cylinder seal or a sensor replacement.
All Columbia Palletizers include Category III safety components and wiring methodology.
All Columbia palletizers use standard components that are customized to meet the unique needs of every application. Working with our Sales Engineering team to optimize the plant layout, machine orientation and package handling variables will ensure your palletizing solution is optimized. With the boadest line of conventional palletizers available, Columbia can always size the palletizer for current needs as well as considering potential future needs.
All Columbia palletizers use standard components that are custom configured to meet the unique needs of every application. There are countless layout configurations available, slip and tier sheet options, touchless case turning infeeds, small case handling kits and more.
Most floor level palletizers are located fairly close to the upstream packaging process. Floor level palletizers are ideal for operations where the fork lift driver taking full loads away and delivering stacks of empty pallets is also responsible for monitoring the operation of the palletizer.
Why Choose a Floor Level Palletizer?
Columbia’s conventional floor level palletizers typically include a 36 inch infeed elevation. Columbia’s smaller footprint conventional palletizers are ideally suited for lower speed operation, while the larger footprint conventional palletizers are a perfect match for higher speed applications.
Flexible Solutions, Reliable Performance.
Columbia’s floor level palletizers are available in countless layout possibilities with rates up to 175 cases per minute (depending on pattern).
