Sidel offers a number of competitive solutions for layer-by-layer palletising with low- and high-level infeeds at medium to high speeds, with a strong focus on maintaining product integrity. Solid construction, using energy-saving design, quality components and dependable control systems permit safe, efficient handling of all kinds of liquid packages.


All layer-by-layer palletisers are designed to accommodate space-saving requirements and facilitate easy access to equipment for manual adjustments or maintenance. Several layer-preparation methods, including advanced robotic solutions, are available for specific product or space requirements.

Explore our layer-by-layer palletisers and find the right solution for your needs:

Low-Level Infeed High-level infeed SINGLE-LINE INFEED




The low-level infeed palletisation was among the first to be developed and is still extensively used today. Sidel offers two types of palletisers with this technology, specialised to overcome the usual limitations of speed and energy consumption:

  • Pal-Kombi enabling speeds of up to 8 layers/minute, optionally with in-line infeed.
  • Pal-Pack 4000 series, entry level solution, enabling speeds of up to 5 layers/minute

Pal-Kombi and Pal-Pack work with all kinds of packages including crates, cartons, trays and shrink-wrapped packs.


  • Benefits

  • Smooth and reliable operation

    • Productivity at any speed and pattern configuration by smooth product flow at the palletiser infeed and between two product runs
    • Quick automatic format changeovers
    • Control of the operations whenever disturbances are detected

  • Robust equipment for longer uptime

    • High-quality materials, durable guide systems and high-standard of components manufacturing for increased lifespan and reduction of maintenance costs and downtime

  • Easy to use and maintain

    • Floor-level location, modular design and ergonomic construction allow easy use and maintenance
    • Human machine interface (HMI) touch screen for direct control over different system parameters

  • Increased sustainability with Pal-Pack eco-design

    • Recyclable equipment and design towards minimal energy consumption

Available upgrades for additional precision and flexibility
Palletising software Pal Designer™ can be used for instant pattern design and monitoring of the output of Sidel's layer palletisers, with precise calculation of speed and row formation. See more here.


The traditional layer formation through collisions can be replaced by the more gentle and compact robotic solutions AxoSmart™ and RoboSmart™ supplied in various configurations depending of the infeed speed. For more information, click here.
