(CINCINNATI)—Intelligrated®, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces the release of two new additions to its hybrid palletizer family, the Alvey® 950F and Alvey 750 series. Both palletizers integrate robotic arms to perform flexible and accurate product handling and layer forming.
Ideal for applications with reduced primary or secondary packaging, the 950F and 750 series gently handle product to create stable single-SKU or mixed-SKU pallet loads and can satisfy retail-ready requirements, including labels-out configurations for end-of-aisle displays.
The floor-level model of Intelligrated’s Alvey 950 series high-speed in-line hybrid palletizer, the 950F operates similarly to the standard model with the benefit of a floor-level infeed. This enables the 950F to connect with higher-speed production lines, maximizing existing manpower with packaging line personnel supervising palletizing operations and eliminating the need for long overhead conveyor runs.
The first mid-speed hybrid palletizer on the market, the Alvey 750 series handles small products exceptionally well, ideal for consumer packaged goods, health and beauty, and converted paper applications. The 750 delivers throughput speeds up to 50 cases per minute and features an optional in-hoist stretch bander or wrapper which enhances load stability, improves cost savings, and reduces floor space requirements.
“With these two additions, the Alvey family of palletizers offers the right capability for any palletizing operation,” said Earl Wohlrab, robotics and palletizers product manager, Intelligrated. “We’ll continue to build innovative solutions with the latest technology backed by the most dependable name in the industry.”
Intelligrated now offers high-level mid-speed hybrid palletizers, as well as high- and low-level high-speed in-line hybrid models.
