AUTEFA Solutions Sweep-Off Depalletizer – 100% fixing of bottles reduces operating costs
The sweep-off depalletizer Certant from AUTEFA Solutions is equipped with an additional lifting column. The centering frame is separate from the sweep-off table. The sweep-off depalletizer from AUTEFA Solutions reduces operating costs and reclamation costs.
The sweep-off depalletizer from AUTEFA Solutions resolves an ever growing problem for filling plants. Normally, bulk glass bottles are delivered on flat intermediate layers. The pallets and glass bottles are protected with stretch/shrink films. This means that the rounded corners of the intermediate layers are bent downwards. The deformation of intermediate layers causes bottles to fall down during the sweep-off cycle. Customers also state that broken glass accumulates on the intermediate layer stacks and deposits on other intermediate layers. When using intermediate layers, this results in extremely high costs due to the necessary cleaning process. These cleaning costs are additional costs for the bottle filling company.
The sweep-off depalletizer from AUTEFA Solutions fixes and secures the bottle layer during every lifting and sweeping movement. Each bottle layer remains fixed by the centering frame until the sweep-off cycle is complete, at which time, the centering frame is opened. Maintaining control of the bottles at all times ensures that no bottles will fall. Independent from the type of packaging customer can feed any bottle size to the line.
