Description of the Newly Inline Pallet Inverter

These inline pallet handling solutions will help your business in increasing productivity significantly, and also reduce the dependence on manual labor.

The changing of pallets and transferring of newly loaded pallets are fully automated. This inline inverter system can be made to work with different types of transfer systems and applications like roller conveyors, labeling machines, pallet stackers, slip sheet dispensers, load-centering devices, and many others.

There is no need for the operators to do any manual changing of pallets.

The inline pallet inverter by TopIndustries Inc will help with the highest efficiency and speed. Your warehouse operations will achieve a higher productivity benchmark with the capacity of handling 100 pallets per hour. This innovative “L-Shape APS” is designed to handle more pallets without causing any kind of damage to the products.

These inline systems are also integrated with robots for stacking or un-stacking the pallets

The inverter can be tilted anywhere between 90° to 130° according to the products that are loaded on the pallets.

The inline system will require a properly designated space in your warehouse for pallet-changing operations. If your warehouse has space constraints, then a portable pallet inverter might be the right choice for your business.

Cycle Description of Inline Pallet Inverter

You can use this inline system for exchanging all different types of pallets. As an example, we’ll discuss about the exchanging cycle having wooden pallets and plastic ones.

  1. The loads are placed on the floor of the inverters or on the conveyer belts to be moved to the inverter platform.
  2. The new target pallet will be placed next to or adjacent to the original pallet load.
  3. The original and new pallets are securely locked to the platform. Now the ‘L-SHAPE APS’ will start tipping the load along with the adjacent new pallet. The degree of inverting will depend on the types of products in the load.
  4. Once the tipping creates the space between the load and the original pallet, the new pallet will be slid by the machine, and the original one will be pushed out.
  5. Now the new target plastic pallet will have successfully replaced the original wooden one.
  6.  Next, the inverter will tip the load back to the original position, this time with the new plastic pallet.
  7. The conveyer belt will then move the pallet to the forklift or for the next operation.
  8. Meanwhile, another robot will pick the original wooden pallets for stacking.
  9. The cycle is complete now, and it can be repeated up to 100 times in an hour.
