Special tools for palletizing containers  

By mjsmaling |

Beumer Group

The parallel gripper is a special tool for palletizing cardboard boxes and other dimensionally stable containers with parallel side walls. The essential components are a fixed plate that functions as a limit stop and a pneumatically activated clamping device that pushes the cardboard box horizontally against the fixed plate. The suction gripper handles all goods with suctionable surfaces. The suction gripper places its suction head above the product and then lowers the suction head tightly against the product surface. The vacuum pump starts and creates a vacuum in the suction head. Then, the bag is picked up and transported to the target position. Air is released into the suction head and the bag is placed.
