Handling up to 60 cartons per minute, the upgraded SPLXc palletizer offers a smaller footprint than the previous model, with a 30% reduction in length and a 20% reduction in width. Features include an enhanced rake that uses belt drive systems for smoother, more energy-efficient product handling, and an upgraded hoist for quieter, faster pallet change out. For speedier installation, a cantilever live-roller and compact in-feed belt are combined. Options include an in-feed conveyor connected to the unit’s open back pallet dispenser for staging of pallet stacks, and an integrated Wulftec WCA-100 automatic turntable stretch wrapper that wraps 50 loads per hour. vonGAL, 334-261-2700, www.vongal.com.
