The Model 72SA gives packagers a low-cost option for upgrading their palletizing operation, with a production machine that eliminates the need for workers to lift heavy, packed cases and relieves the risk of injury, worker compensation claims and increased insurance premiums. The operator must position the cases into the pallet pattern by sliding them from the infeed conveyor onto the loading table. Once the pallet layer is completed, the operator then activates the machine either by footpad or push-button. The layer is automatically lifted and placed squarely upon the previous layer, and the transfer table returns to the start position for the next layer. High-quality pallet loads are ensured as the machine utilizes a rear layer retainer plate and two side layer squaring plates to center the layer squarely on the pallet. The machine features a heavy gauge steel frame. The elevator table is counterweighted to ensure smooth transport and supported by crossbar reinforcing beams for reduced case friction. A low friction roller transfer table is available to allow easy handling of heavy and shrink-wrapped cases.
