The PROPAL 9600 Glass Palletizer is extremely flexible and, depending on customer requirements, can be assembled using a modular concept. Because customers' precise specifications were taken into consideration during the design stage, the 9600 represents the latest in engineering. By consulting suppliers, the system reliability was optimized through the use of high quality components, precision gears, multifaceted system technology and redundant safeguards, while absolute-value transmitters minimized the need for sensors.
The grip mechanism, together with the innovative lift system, is the heart of the PROPAL 9600. The gripping system is suspended from four strong belts positioned in a square and conically arranged so that the belts roll up and unwind, smoothly and effortlessly changing the height of the lift system. Taking up little space, the positioning of the 4 belts provides reliable stability to the lift system, which in turn ensures accurate positioning of the product. The smooth operation and no-wear lift system give the 9600 a clear advantage over the more conventional, aged palletizers and bent-arm robots. Due to the space-saving band lift system, the PROPAL 9600 has a sleek, low-slung profile with an overall height of only 3,800 mm, a pallet height of 2,400 mm and a conveyor belt height of 300 mm. It is, therefore, particularly appropriate for production halls with low ceilings.
