At Pack Expo in Chicago (Oct. 31-Nov. 3), Westfalia Technologies will exhibit casers, stackers and palletizers. Westfalia’s new palletizing system is capable of handling plastic and wood pallets. The system palletizes two full pallets a minute. Each pallet holds nine stacks of dairy cases, stacked six high, for a total of 54 cases. Constructed of all stainless steel materials, it is ideally suited for dairy and beverage washdown environments.
The company can provide a total logistics solution for handling products, from production to storage to customer order selection and shipping. Its Savanna.NET warehouse management software integrates all these material-handling systems to control, manage and provide real-time data of all product flows throughout the supply chain. Its modular framework allows companies to expand into automation in steps, as they grow.
The latest addition to the company’s caser line is the Quart Fractional Carton Caser which packs up to 240 units a minute of quart, pint or half-pint cartons. The half-gallon/two-liter Carton Caser which loads up to 160 cartons a minute using an air-powered load head will also be featured, as will the new Hybrid Powered Case Stacker which operates with a hydraulic lift and compressed air that is capable of stacking 25 cases a minute.
