Pneumatic Palletizer

March 7, 2012

The new PalletPal 360 Air level loader from Southworth Products allows operators to build or break down pallet loads with minimal bending, reaching, stretching or walking around. The unit automatically adjusts the height of pallets as boxes are added or removed. Height adjustment is achieved by a heavy-duty reinforced rubber air bag that maintains the top layer of stacked containers at a convenient height. The PalletPal 360 Air can accommodate loads from 400 to 4,500 lbs. And the unit’s turntable ring (or optional turntable platform) allows the user to effortlessly rotate the load so he or she can stand in the same spot throughout the loading or unloading process. All of the unit’s components are contained within the diameter of the turntable ring so users can step closer, allowing full 360-degree access, which makes loading and unloading pallets faster, safer and easier, according to the manufacturer.
