Feb. 18, 2018 – Columbia Machine says the HL9200 is the most advanced and highest speed palletizer in its family of palletizers.
According to the company, the HL9200 provides the “ultimate in flexibility by incorporating new variable lane position technology” with Columbia’s soft-turn case handling and two configurable layer tables for layer forming. Columbia’s Variable Position Turner (VPT) technology is also available for applications that are enhanced by using drop-down cushioned turners. Columbia says it is the first in the conventional inline palletizer industry to provide an HMI where the operator can create new patterns or optimize existing patterns via the HMI. Palletizing up to 200 cases per minute, the unit’s safety package includes Category 3 safety system with fully integrated upper and lower guarding complete with viewing panels and multiple access doors with a trapped key door access system. A dual slot automatic hoist pin latching system on the full load hoist aim to provide a redundant fail-safe protection system. Full height light curtains are located on the full load discharge and empty pallet infeed.
