Pro Mach’s division Currie by Brenton has unveiled the new MasterPal technology that offers steady tight layer grids of palletized product through ‘cradle and place’ technology, which combines a servo-operated rotary tool and slat system to handle full layers of product with each motion.
The end-of-arm technology palletizes or depalletizes full layers at time, up to 500lbs, at speeds up to six layers a minute.
According to Pro Mach, the technology provides better results for empty or full bulk items, bags, cans, bottles or irregular shaped packs, and handles open or sealed cases, trays, display packs, bundles and bulk product.
Currie by Brenton product line manager Jason Bennett said the slatted apron of MasterPal completely supports an entire layer of product from the bottom.
"This eliminates product handling limitations created by rollers or vacuum pick and place, which leave trays behind or fail to handle certain bulk items," Bennett said.
