We are very pleased to announce the Highrunner HR9 Logistic palletizer
We are proud to introduce a brand new palletizer especially developed for a logistic environment where palletizing goods from containers happens often. Thanks to its unique pattern generator, the Qimarox Highrunner HR9 palletizer can stack boxes of almost any size on pallets at lightning speed. With this innovation, importers of various products are able to largely automate the unloading of containers. The result: improved ergonomics and savings on time and personnel costs.
The unloading of ‘loose loaded’ containers is physically demanding, time-consuming and unattractive work. The boxes must be manually removed from the containers one by one and stacked on pallets. This leads to physical complaints among staff and damage to goods if boxes are stacked carelessly or dropped. As it becomes increasingly difficult to find personnel and pressure increases from the supply chain to empty containers faster, more and more companies are looking for solutions to automate the process.
Smart pattern generator with 3D scanner
Qimarox is responding to this request from the companies with the Highrunner HR9 Logistic palletizer. This lightning-fast, innovative palletizer is able to stack boxes of almost any size on pallets automatically. A unique feature is the smart pattern generator that automatically generates multiple stacking patterns based on the dimensions of a box. All the operator has to do is select the desired stacking pattern, but even this can be automated! The Qimarox Highrunner HR9 does the rest and translates the selected stacking pattern into instructions for the machine.
The Highrunner HR9 is equipped with a fully integrated 3D product scanner, which automatically captures the contours and dimensions of the cartons. This data forms the input for the pattern generator, which calculates multiple stacking patterns based on it. The intuitively designed control panel displays the stacking patterns and indicates the preferred stacking pattern. The operator’s choice is recorded in memory, so that the correct stacking pattern is automatically selected the next time. Unloading containers has never been easier.
Minimal risk of product damage
Qimarox has been developing palletizers for many years, which are used by dozens of consumer product manufacturers worldwide. Because these robust, low-maintenance plate palletizers carry the products at the bottom, the chance of product damage is minimized. Now that Qimarox has developed a smart pattern generator with an integrated 3D scanner, it is no longer necessary to measure boxes manually and to design and program stacking patterns yourself. This saves a lot of time when unloading containers, where it is often unclear in advance how the goods are packed.
The highrunner HR9 palletizer enables companies to automate their unloading processes. Which brings a couple of benefits:
– Fewer personnel required for these operations
– A faster palletizing process (1,000 products per hour based on 4 products per layer)
– No more (costly & time consuming) manual handling
– No more risks of repetitive strain injuries of the workforce
– No more risks of being hit by falling objects
– No more risks of falls from heights
– No more risks of slips, trips and/or falls
The Highrunner HR9 palletizer is now successfully in use at OMS International, a Dutch logistics service provider that unloads about a hundred containers of non-food items every day for one of Europe’s largest supermarket chains. With the palletizer including the stacking generator, OMS is able to process 10,000 boxes per day, which saves several FTEs.
