Italy-based OCME presents a range of pallet checkers designed to improve palletizer performance and productivity.
OCME pallet checkers can reduce palletizer downtime by detecting pallet faults before they are loaded with product and can improve pallet quality.
Traditional OCME pallet checkers employ a single pass system that uses pressure rollers to detect cracked or broken boards and reject substandard pallets.
The typical OCME system consists of a pallet de-stacker, infeed/ exit conveyors, reject system and an integration system to link it to the palletizer.
Robotic pallet checkers employ a six-axis robot to check every board on both sides of the pallet for defects, and nail heads are pressed into the board to prevent subsequent damage to packs or containers loaded on the pallets.
OCME, represented by HBM Packaging in Oceania, is involved in packaging, filling, handling and palletizing systems for the consumer products industry.
