Columbia Machine's new Model FL1000-SW combines a rugged, heavy-duty small-footprint palletizer with the added functionality of a fully integrated stretch wrapper. The FL1000-SW can simultaneously stack and stretch wrap a wide variety of package types, including cases, trays, totes, and display packs.
Constructed with formed and welded steel, the device features an 80-pitch hoist chain. A stretch wrapper from Highlight Industries performs a wrap cycle after each layer is placed onto the pallet while the next layer of product is being built. The FL1000-SW palletizes 10 cases per minute (10 case per layer pattern) or more, depending on the case size and pallet pattern.
The machines offer the flexibility of multiple layout possibilities, including front, rear, and side infeeds and the option of pallet dispensing and load discharge on the same side. Columbia's Product Manager Software provides a user-friendly interface, increasing palletizer up-time and productivity by making it simple to add or modify patterns, make stretch wrapper adjustments, and adjust PLC timers and VFD speeds.
