Columbia VPT turning technology for inline palletizing

Monday April 02, 2018
Apr. 2, 2018 - Columbia’s new Variable Position Turner (VPT) technology aims to maximize speed and flexibility for inline high-speed palletizing. 

With VPT technology, servos are used to position the centre turners laterally on an inline palletizer while the layer is being formed, explains Columbia. VPT locations are accessed and programmed through the HMI. According to the company, fewer turners are required (maximum of four) and when used in conjunction with Columbia’s adjustable lane position technology, pattern forming capability is “virtually limitless.” Columbia describes VPT as best suited for ultra-high speed applications handling fridge packs, cartons, trays and film-only packages.
