Intelligrated Alvey 950 hybrid palletizer

CINCINNATI—Intelligrated, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, has launched two new enhancements for its Alvey 950 series hybrid palletizers (see image above).

The new features include an on-board stretch bander that adds stability to otherwise unstable loads and an integrated control system that allows both the conventional palletizer and its robotic arms to operate from a single PLC (programmable logic controller).

Intelligrated’s in-booth demonstrations at PACK EXPO 2012 (booth #2274) showcase an Alvey 952-2—the latest model in the Alvey 950 series—operating with both enhancements.

Ideal for reduced secondary packaging applications that require gentle handling, the Alvey 950 series hybrid palletizer integrates robotic arms with a conventional high-speed palletizer to increase pattern flexibility and facilitate quick product.
