Granta Drum Palletiser

Modular Drum Palletising System

The Modular drum palletising system is quick to install, low cost and fast and easy to program.

For drum palletising, an underneath gripper head is usually used. This type of gripper has a plate that slides underneath the drum, and an arm that goes across the top of the drum and clamps down onto the drum to hold it in place. Once the drum has been placed in the desired location the clamp is released and the tray is pushed off the gripper plate onto the pallet stack. The underneath gripper also has an integral vacuum gripper that is used to pick and place pallets onto the conveyor, and to pick and place slip sheets between layers if required.

The software automatically optimises stack patterns which enables you to quickly select the best stack pattern to get the most drums on your pallets without having to spend a lot of time planning.

The Modular palletising series also has easy programming software that enables your factory floor staff to re-program the robot for palletising different sizes of drum within minutes.

Palletising speeds are optimised to suit your process and depending on the speeds you need to achieve, a standard pick and place method may be used, or for higher speed applications, a layer forming process will be used.

Custom modules can also be added to the Modular palletising series such as; pallet stretch wrapping, labelling, etc. More information on the Modular palletiser series is available on the links below.
