Fully automated sheet dispensers optimise operations, and you get satisfied customers
The fixed pick-up height is a game changer for the efficiency of a palletising line. This means a quick run-in of the robot, a shorter travel distance for the robot arm and a uniform and improved cycle time. Those advantages can make a world of difference to your customers when the goal is the fastest, most efficient and error-free sheet handling.
You can improve operational efficiency for your customers
Dropped sheets are a huge challenge in many palletising lines.
The robot mistakenly picks up several sheets at a time, which are then dropped inside the cell or misplaced on the pallet, and this leads to downtime and unstable pallets. Every time it happens.
This is particularly a challenge when you use a sheet magazine in your palletising line, as there is always a stack of sheets ready.
With a Palcut fully automated sheet dispenser, only one sheet is cut at a time, ensuring accurate pick-up – and reduced downtime – for your customers.
Furthermore, the sheet magazine is a bottleneck for the cycle time.
As the robot retrieves sheets from the sheet magazine, the stack shrinks, and the robot thus has to walk further and further to pick up a new sheet. It costs time, and time is valuable in production.
This challenge is eliminated with an automated sheet dispenser. Here, the pick-up height is fixed, so that the robot is continuously fed one sheet from one fixed height.
This means that you can deliver a solution to your customers that provides a consistent cycle time and improved production speed.
Palcut has been optimising palletising lines throughout Europe for more than 20 years, and we currently have more than 700 systems in operation.
We would be delighted to have a no-obligation chat with you about your choice of sheet handling, so that you can offer your customers the most efficient palletising, giving them lightning-fast workflows and stacks of other benefits.
Let your customers optimise their resources
When you provide your customers with a more efficient palletising solution with a sheet dispenser that requires less manual handling and faster workflows, you enable the customer to optimise their resources.
Because when storage and logistics employees have to spend less time receiving and moving paper, and the operator has to deal with fewer downtimes, so they can use that time elsewhere in production and on other, more value-creating tasks.
In addition, the installation of a fully automated sheet dispenser can lead to a significant reduction in the customer’s paper consumption, which can contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions associated with the customer’s palletising.
With a fully automated sheet dispenser, it is possible to use anti-slip paper reels, which, with their low gramme weight (compared to traditional corrugated cardboard), can significantly reduce your customer’s total paper consumption.
In fact, paper consumption can be reduced by up to 40%, and since anti-slip better stabilises the products on the pallet, it also reduces the need for stretch film.
With a Palcut fully automated sheet dispenser, you not only give your customers the most efficient palletising solution, you also help them get ready for a more sustainable production in the future.
