NEOVIA replaces a cartesian palletizer by a palletizing robot with a bags layer former. In order not to modify the whole line configuration, bags feeding will be made from the top. The robot picks up the bag from the bottom and places it into a false pallet using motorized shaping bars to tighten the layer before placing it on the pallet and perform a pressing of each layer. Various conveyors, a pallet unstacker and a top protection sheet dispenser complete the line.
Because of the variable density of the product and therefore the possible irregular bags filling level, the shaping of the layers and their regular stacking are essential to ensure the stability of the pallets during transport and handling.
The robot with the false pallet is the perfect tool for uniformity and safety.
