FKI Logistex Launches PL-950 Series Palletizer at PACK EXPO 2008
Hybrid in-line palletizer features a robotic case divider/turner and is ideal for small packages and complex patterns
(ST. LOUIS: November 12, 2008) FKI Logistex® (www.fkilogistex.com), a global leader in integrated material handling solutions, launched its PL-950 Series hybrid in-line palletizer at the PACK EXPO 2008 exhibition in Chicago, Ill. The PL-950 uses one or more robotic arms for pattern forming, making it ideal for handling small finished case sizes, multiple product formats, and complex patterns.
Designed with high-speed and flexibility in mind, the PL-950 Series is capable of achieving packaging rates in excess of 100 cases per minute. New patterns can be programmed from the Human-Machine Interface (HMI), allowing for fast and easy product reconfiguration and quick line changeover. The PL-950 also gently handles products with minimal secondary packaging, without compromising the integrity of the finished product.
"The PL-950 Series palletizer provides the speed and flexibility today's manufacturers need," said Steve Ackerman, president, FKI Logistex, North America. "FKI Logistex remains on the forefront of high-speed palletizing technologies that enable our customers to efficiently handle changing product package configurations."
The PL-950 Series is available in two models, the PL-951 and the PL-952, each with the option of one or two robotic arms. The PL-951 model features a single layer accumulation zone for high-speed applications, while the PL-952 model includes two layer accumulation zones for very high-speed applications.
