Crate handling systems

This system delivers crates in singles starting from stacks or columns.

There is a pneumatic version and a servo driven solution depending the speed requirement.

The crates to be de-stacked could have different shapes, dimensions or materials, detachable base or solid made.

For better ergonomics, the de stacking system could have a lift system from the pallet height on the floor, or alternatively from a higher level going down.

For higher autonomy the crate piles could accumulated in a buffer system to be fed automatically to the de stacking system.

This system stacks single crates.

There is a pneumatic version and a servo driven solution depending the speed requirement.

The crates to be de stacked could have different shapes, dimensions or materials, detachable base or solid made.

For better ergonomics, the de stacking system could have a lift system from the pallet height on the floor,or from a high level going down.

BALE ARM CLOSER

CrateHandling_3

An specific crate uses a bale arm system to allow the empty crates to stack inside each other and reduce the height of a complete column of empty crates.

Those crates have some side supports called bale arms which need to be closed when stacking full crates. The bale arm closer has a set of c losing arms which moves intermittently as the crate moves into the machine.

This motion moves the bale arms from the open position to the closed position.

The servo system allows for more than one closed position which may be required depending on the depth of the crate and the crate fill height.
