In the food and pharmaceutical sector, many companies are constantly evolving and looking for new ways to reduce costs, speed up processes, increase internal margins, and safeguard staff.
In the last decade, another factor of analysis has been added: technological progress.
Consequently, the continuous increase in industrial automation has developed in all phases of internal management, from the entry and exit of goods, and products to internal production. TopIndustries carries forward the values of innovation through a varied selection of systems in the production range that are able to change the pallet in a completely automatic way.
We install these solutions for multinational companies all around the world, especially in United States.
The evolution of logistics in the warehouse
Over the years, technology has made great strides and TopIndustries stays ahead.
One of the reasons this happens is because of the constant need to improve performance, warehouse efficiency, speed up operations, and much more. This also derives from the performance measurement methods which are increasingly specific and take into account many different factors, certainly including what impact factor the supply of an automatic system has in economic-financial terms.
We are able to calculate your ROI based on the type of investment and your company.
The automation of pallet changing system
The solutions that TopIndustries designs arises from the needs of the market.
The problem that arises is therefore how to obtain less waste of materials and time, increasing the speed in very technologically advanced contexts. With automatic pallet changing systems, the trend that is manifesting itself especially in recent years, is the increase in the demand for automation. For all types of markets, this is an unparalleled change as it profoundly revolutionizes all internal processes.
Labor is completely replaced with the presence of automatic systems, which in the long run favors a net decrease in operator costs. The pandemic situation has also contributed to this transition. In fact, when all unnecessary activities were suspended, companies that owned automated warehouses were not affected by any slowdown. The combination of events has therefore led to a further acceleration in the automation of storage processes.
In such a scenario, Toppy with TopIndustries has evolved its production line by adding a new pallet changing line to satisfy this type of need as well.
How fully automatic pallet exchangers works
Just as our mobile and stationary pallet exchangers available in TopIndustries’s production range, the fully automatic pallet changer systems are also able to manage any type of product with different replacement methods: load tipping, load rotation, lateral clamping, or pushing.
One of the determining factors of these systems is the absence of staff dedicated to carrying out the operation. The result of the implementation, consequently, is an automatic management of products on pallets. Fully automatic pallet changers meet the needs of companies in the new decade. Increases in productivity, reduced costs, and zero waste are ensured.
Automatic pallet changing systems are especially dedicated to large companies with a consistent flow of products to manage.
Change more than 100 pallet per hour with TopIndustries
TopIndustries is the only company in the world capable of handling more than 100 pallets per hour.
When the need arises, the improvement in speed and money saving justifies the choice of an automatic pallet changer. In the United States, where large multinationals historically prevail, there are so many consistent flows of incoming and outgoing products where TopIndustries is working on.
Difficulties of changing automatically the pallet
The operation that TopIndustries takes care of, through in-line pallet changers, is one of the most delicate and challenging within an automatic warehouse. In addition to being the most variable, it is also the one that can arise the most serious problems.
TopIndustries is able to provide an automatic solution able to manage many types of pallets with different products in a very small space in a super fast way.

To make the solutions work for every field of application, TopIndustries offers highly customized pallet exchangers considering any of your characteristics.
Our latest set-up
A multinational company in the food sector has decided to install one of our fully automatic pallet changing systems in its warehouse.
The need arises from the management of a consistent flow of incoming products, which are presented on different types of pallets that cannot enter the company’s production process for two main reasons:
- For sanitary reasons, incoming pallets are not sanitized and cannot enter the white area;
- To standardize the pallets, the products are conveyed within the warehouse via a standard pallet.
As with any implanted system, our engineers reach the customer for installation and for the SAT, i.e. commissioning. During this period, the staff is trained so that they are able to interact immediately with the system to fully exploit all its potential.
L-Shape automatic pallet exchanger
The “L-shape” system manages the products by tilting the load to 105°.
This solution was also chosen because they wanted to increase performance and internal efficiency, as well as safeguard operators. With these sophisticated systems, many accidents are avoided and the physical integrity of the operator is preserved.
TopIndustries market diversification
The evolution of the industry is increasingly complex and constantly generates new and sometimes even completely different needs from what has been the historicity of the sector.
Toppy, with TopIndustries, diversifies from the market precisely to meet these new needs. Online solutions are currently the most innovative method through which the company successfully achieves its objectives.
Not just in the United States.
The L shape is also appreciated throughout Europe thanks to its great adaptability. It is also possible to implement it in the patented APS form in 2021.
