Intelligrated® recently announced its Alvey GS100 family of palletizers, the latest entry-level addition to its existing line of Alvey palletizers and depalletizers. The Alvey GS100 series is capable of speeds up to 30 cases per minute, and is well-suited for large, multi-line palletizing projects or smaller operations interested in converting from manual to automatic palletizing. The series also features a compact, modular design with small footprint, and comes in the following models:
- GS120 low-speed palletizer with manual pallet handling. Once a load is completed, it is removed and another empty pallet is manually positioned in the load build cavity.
- GS130 low-speed palletizer with semi-automated pallet handling. Once a load is built on an empty pallet on the chain conveyor, it is automatically discharged from the load build cavity and another empty pallet is conveyed into position. Empty pallets are manually fed one at a time into an opening under the row former.
- GS140 low-speed palletizer with fully-automated pallet handling. Once a load is built on an empty pallet on the chain conveyor, it is automatically discharged from the load build cavity and an empty pallet is automatically dispensed. Empty pallets are delivered via forklift to a lift and separate pallet dispenser with a 10 pallet capacity.
