The Goldco Centurion 4000 is designed with the flexibility to support the world’s bulk palletizer requirements. The Goldco Centurion 4000 incorporates automatic pallet and layer size adjustment features throughout. Electro/pneumatic drives accurately and repeatedly position assemblies to accept multiple pallet sizes (see Specifications). Pushbutton changeover allows the most efficient pallet size changeover in the industry. Designed with the same empty top transfer feature as BW Integrated Systems’ previous palletizers, this new machine features the capability to handle layer pad stacks up to 914mm without the need for a special bin.
Multiple can sizes (diameters and heights) are also easily handled by the Centurion 4000, with easy to place change-parts, maximizing line-up time during can size changes. Layers of cans (properly formed through the Airliner) are swiftly placed on the pallet with the continuous motion pattern positioner. A synchronized layer retainer leads all layers, which eliminates frontrow tipping. Layer placement, including layer pad, is effortlessly completed in under 6 seconds.
Prior to the Centurion 4000, precious time was consumed handling metal top frames, which could require additional accumulation in front of the palletizer to absorb can production during pallet change. The unique side transfer magazine, combined with the robotic steel frame handler, eliminates the time added for pallet changeover. The palletizer will operate with a 16 second pallet change running wood, plastic or steel (sandwiched) frames.
