Automatic Pallet Wrapper and Pallet Conveyor System

  • The system layout will be constructed with two packing/entry positions, a wrapping station and one exit/discharge point. Intermediate pallet positions are also integrated.

  • Operators will manually place a pallet onto the first pallet position and proceed to pack the product onto the pallet.

  • Once the pallet packing is complete the operator will push a button to activate the roller conveyor system. Roller conveyor will transfer the packed pallet to the intermediate position.

  • Should the pallet position directly before the pallet wrapper be empty the pallet will automatically continue to this position. The pallet is then ready to enter the pallet wrapping position.

  • Pallet enters the pallet wrapping position and wrapping takes place automatically. The pallet wrapping unit will be able to receive pallets from either of the packing lines.

  • Should the pallet wrapper be busy when a packed pallet reaches the position just before the wrapper, the pallet will wait until the wrapper is cleared, before unit will allow the pallet to enter. The accumulation and conveying sequence of the pallets through the system is controlled automatically.

  • On completion of the wrapping process the wrapper unit will orientate the pallet to exit on the discharge conveyor. When pallet is clear the unit will rotate to allow the next pallet to enter.

  • The completed conveyor will proceed to the discharge point where it can be removed by forklift.

  • The exit conveyor is also equipped with an intermediate conveyor position. Therefore should the last station be occupied by a pallet, the next pallet will wait until the last position is clear before automatically moving forward.


Pallet Roller Conveyors

  • These units will be responsible to convey the pallets from the operator packing position through the pallet wrapping process to eventually end at the dispatch points where the forklift will remove the packed and wrapped pallet.

  • The units are made up of a rigid frame, side profile sections and rollers.

  • Construction is done using commercial grade mild steel, powder coated.

  • Rollers are mild steel, galvanized and are driven by means of chain links and fixed speed geared motor units.

  • The scope of supply will include all relevant and required intermediate, packing and discharging stations as per the attached layout.

  • Each pallet position/section is equipped with an individual geared motor unit, photocell for positioning, and frequency inverter for controlled stop/start and speed variation.

  • Each packing line has three pallet positions with a further three positions on the exit side. Total of nine pallet modules/positions of approximately 1500mm each.

Fully Auto Pallet Wrapping Machine

  • This unit will be positioned in the center of the system to receive pallets from either one of the packing operations.

  • The unit is equipped with a power pre-stretcher to optimize material use.

  • Motion and travel actions are done by means of geared motor units.

  • All actions and operator interface is made easy by means of an interface screen and functions are controlled by Plc and sensor configuration.

  • The wrapping machine unit has a roller conveyor section/station forming part of the machine supply and is integrated into the design.

System Control

  • The complete electrical supply and interface to all equipment and functions will be housed in a central electrical enclosure.

  • This control panel will house the required switchgear to control the wrapping and/or conveyor sections.

  • The functions of the lines and related input and output interface actions are controlled by means of a Plc and required motor control is achieved by frequency inverters.
