Palletizer Highrunner HR8 for IQF products suchs as Vegetables, Fruits and Fries
Frozen foods industry
In the frozen food industry, it's important to efficiently manage the storage and transportation of food. That's where palletizers come in. The Highrunner HR8 palletizer is a machine that's designed to efficiently load empty pallets with frozen food products.
There are several reasons why using a palletizer in the frozen food industry is beneficial. First, it speeds up the process of handling the products and the loading and unloading process for transport trucks. Resulting in shorter transportation times and fresher food. Also, using a palletizer helps to reduce labor costs by automating a tedious and physical task. Finally, a palletizer can be programmed to load pallets in a way that optimizes storage space, saving money on storage fees.
In summary, using a palletizer in the frozen food industry has many advantages, including shorter transportation times, reduced labor costs, and optimized storage space.
Unique layer formation system
What sets every Qimarox layer palletizer apart from any other solution on the market is the unique way a layer is build. With the patented design every layer pattern used within the frozen food industry can be created without any manual adjustment.
As floorspace is very expensive, the line infeed of the flexible palletizer also ensures the possibility to place machines close next to each other so the machine can be placed in line with the casepacker.
Palletizing cartons with frozen vegetables needs a layer formation system that can handle both normal cartons but also cartons that are bulged due to the - often - lower carton quality and the properties of the natural product that is being packed. By moving and positioning each row of cartons individually it is possible to create exact gaps between the individual row. These gaps are used to absorb the tolerances on the cartons when the layer is placed onto the pallet.
This way of layer handling had proven over-and-over again that it offers the best solution to create solid and stable pallet loads, even with bulged cartons.
Every HR8 comes with the commonly used layer-patterns within the industry pre-programmed. Every layer pattern is freely adjustable with the HMI and also complete new layer patterns can be created very easily. This can be done with the Qimarox Pattern Generator and can be used without detailed knowledge on the palletizer. You can simply enter the product and pallet dimensions and the system will show you the most optimal layer patterns to choose from.
Palletizing Layer by layer
Another advantage is that the products are deposited on the pallet layer by layer with the Highrunner HR8. By depositing an entire layer at a time, the Highrunner HR8 needs to make fewer movements. This saves time, which increases the capacity.
Because the pallet moves up and down with a Prorunner mk10 vertical conveyor, the collated products no longer needs to be picked and moved up and down while being deposited. That saves even more time, especially with pallets that need to be stacked 1.80 metres or higher. This makes the Highrunner HR8 one of the fastest palletizers on the market. Not having the need to pick up products but only using - simple - pushing movements also increases reliability and less down time of the production line.
Infeed and outfeed of pallets
As soon as a pallet is full, the pallet lift moves all the way down so that it can be taken away via a pallet transport system. An empty pallet can be supplied from the opposite direction at the same time. This continues flow of pallets improves the time needed for pallet change over which is the most time consuming moment within any palletizing system and has a huge impact on overall throughput.
