COLUMNAR PALLETISING

OPTIMISE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY WITH VERSATILE SINGLE-COLUMN SOLUTIONS

The energy and maintenance optimisation of your bottling production can only be completed with a proper end-of-line solution. Sidel's single-column palletisers EvoFlex™ and Robo-Column™ come with a simple main structure adaptable to any speed, space or infeed level constraint. With focus on strength and performance, these palletisers can ensure outputs of up to 10.5 layers/minute and weight as high as 750 kg depending on the configuration.

 

The pallet patterns and packaging to be handled may be of any type, including crates, cartons, shrink-wrapped packages, loose bottles, kegs and plastic trays.
