Empty pallet handling

August 1, 2008


Used to prepare pallets for robotic palletizing, layer-forming palletizing or hand-palletizing, Westfalia’s empty pallet handling system is constructed with heavy-duty components and a powder-coated finish for long-lasting protection. The system has 3 elements: an electric pallet dispenser, slip sheet dispenser and chain-drive live roller conveyor. The pallet dispenser and slip sheet dispenser dispense 2 pallets/min., require electrical power of 230/460 VAC and offer a maximum load weight of 1,000 lbs.; the pallet dispenser has a 15-pallet capacity. The roller conveyor runs on the same motor electrical requirements and can handle loads up to 3,500 lbs.
