LeMatic’s Palletizing SystemLeMatic’s Palletizing System is a fully-automatic, pallet-loading and wrapping system for stacks of bakery distribution baskets. The system receives stacks of loaded baskets and holds them in a queue until needed. The single-basket stack then indexes into a stack-transfer conveyor, which gently loads the stack onto a rotating pallet table, where a distribution pallet receives it. After receiving a stack of baskets, the pallet table rotates to receive the next stack until it is full. Once loaded, the stacked pallet is transferred into a pallet wrapper, which wraps the basket stack tightly. The entire process is run by one control system for unified and easy operation.
