Scott specializes in complete internal logistics and materials handling solutions for manufacturing and warehousing facilities. These automated and robotic systems facilitate all product movement, packing, palletizing, warehouse storage and distribution, handling a wide range of packaging, such as cases, cartons, trays, crates and pallets.
Our wide portfolio of industrial services and systems includes conventional layer and robot palletizers, pallet conveyors, case conveyors, order preparation systems and automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) and other materials handling equipment. This is complemented by our software package, Maestro+. Automating these procedures creates a more efficient production line with cost-saving, productivity and safety benefits.
Deciding which type of palletizing is best for your plant is determined by speed, scale and product type. While all palletizers can palletize, some are better suited to certain production requirements than others.
Multi-line palletizing is better for limited space and medium-speed production lines, linking several lines to one, or more, palletization machines. As soon as enough product is ready to fill a complete pallet, the system transports it to the palletizers and takes care of the palletization. This system can handle multiple product types concurrently.
End-of-line palletizing systems are designed mainly for manufacturing sites with very high production volumes where a dedicated palletizer per line is the optimal solution. Often the product requires careful and supported handling, being fragile and/or heavy.
Robotic palletizing is better suited to slower production lines, offering a flexible approach to addressing fluctuating production requirements. It can be located anywhere within the plant and is well suited to working with AGVs.
End-of-line palletizing for a leading food producer. Handles different products, such as cases, trays, or shrink-wrapped packs, reaching the total capacity of up to 130 pieces per minute.
The European Frozen Food business is reported to be in excess of €75 billion and all indications are of strong continued growth across all the markets. The vast majority of those products, together with those in the Chilled Foods sector, will spend significant time being transported or stored on pallets.
