FKI Logistex has added new design and interface options for its A-780 case palletizer. The new options increase the A-780's capacity and its value as a choice for low- to mid-speed palletizing applications. Close-center rollers and a bi-parting apron give the A-780 the ability to handle a wide variety of case and pallet sizes. Its compact footprint is ideal for existing facilities where space is at a premium.
A recirculating row pusher is a new option offered on the A-780. This feature improves case flow and allows higher palletizing capacities with rates of up to 45 case-feet per minute. It is offered as an alternative to the standard reciprocating row pusher. A new high-speed hoist option further increases capacity when handling short loads or large cases. Also new is an optional pattern generation utility, which provides the user with the ability to create new stacking patterns through the A-780's user interface. A pattern timing utility, offering the ability to tune existing patterns, is now a standard feature. In addition, the A-780 is RFID-enabled, giving it such capabilities as changing patterns on the fly, managing end-ofrun clearing, and tracking production and inventory information.
Built for optimum reliability and reduced maintenance, the A-780 is designed with a heavy-duty frame, premium components, and a minimum number of moving parts. Its advanced diagnostic system displays human-readable messages that enable quick diagnosis of any potential problem.
