Mar. 27, 2017 – Columbia Machine says its FL6200 palletizer features a floor-level design that combines “robotic-like precision with the familiar simplicity and load build quality of a conventional palletizing solution.”
The FL6200 can palletize up to 120 cases per minute, depending on layer pattern, says the company, adding that it can manage standard and challenging products including shallow unwrapped trays, shrink pads, film-only bundles and more. According to Columbia Machine, the FL6200 includes Category 3, Performance Level D safety components and incorporates fully integrated guarding, full height light curtains, automatic four-point hoist pins, case infeed tunnel and interlocked load building area access doors. The unit uses Columbia’s Product Manager HMI, servo-actuated layer transfer and load building area hoists, servo actuated bi-parting apron plates and modular construction that allows for multiple layout configurations to fit various site constraints.
