The products are supplied by means of a feed belt that is placed on left or right side of the formation system. Each individual product is placed on an exact location until a full row of product is formed. Each formed row is placed onto an buffer where it remains until a layer is complete. By depositing an entire layer at a time, the Highrunner HR7 needs to make fewer movements. This saves time, increasing the capacity when compared to other palletising systems.
Pallets pass along the bottom of the unit
Because the pattern-formation conveyor and pallet lift are placed higher, both empty and full pallets can pass underneath at floor level via the central roller conveyor.
In other words, in an arrangement with for example, three Crossrunners next to each other, a full pallet from the first machine can be carried away under the second machine while this second machine simply continues palletising. Conversely, it is possible to transport an empty pallet to the second machine under the first machine via the roller conveyor without hindering the first machine at all.
Intelligent Control Software
Qimarox’s intelligent control software ensures that the infeed and outfeed of pallets is carefully coordinated with the movements of the palletisers, so that collisions can be avoided.
It is even possible to assign different priorities per machine. This prevents the last palletizer from not being able to get rid of its full pallet because of the large flow of pallets coming from the other machines.
Compact and Accessible
The great advantage of the Crossrunner space saving palletising is its compact set-up. It is not longer necessary to build an infeed and outfeed conveyor for each palletiser so the needed floor space per palletising unit is minimized and no other palletising system can be build this compact.
An additional advantage is accessibility. The lack of complex roller conveyor constructions, the palletisers are easily accessible for service and maintenance, even with a forklift if necessary.
