Goudsmit Magnetics modular magnetic palletizer for trouble-free production

Goudsmit Magnetics recently redesigned its magnetic palletizer with modular construction. Now integrators, packaging companies and food or chemical producers have choices to eliminate the need for an extra robot and save manpower. The maintenance-friendly magnet is suitable for palletizing and depalletizing tins, aerosol cans, canned goods and glass jars with steel lids.

New vacuum system and pallet gripper options make it possible for operations such as picking and placing a pallet, separator sheet or layer of cans to be carried out by a single robot. The associated savings result in a quick payback period for this new system. Available as a lightweight version or the choice of a spring suspension unit serves as a flexible guideway to prevent product damage and enable correct positioning.

Magnetic palletizer works for versatile product handling

The integrated vacuum system is designed for picking up and processing any size and type of separator sheet. The parallel mechanism guarantees a low-maintenance, trouble-free production process, even with non-uniform loads, such as picking up an uneven layer. 

The magnet is fitted with several intuitive pole systems so with light tins or aerosol cans the field is stronger at the surface and with heavier loads, like canned goods, the magnetic field is deeper. The palletizer uses pneumatics for easy control and is equipped with sensors for on/off detection. The spring suspension unit makes positioning easy and prevents product damage. It is also equipped with sensors that prevent misalignment (twisting) and jamming, as well as crashing of the robot in unexpected situations. The new design of the palletizer is the result of thorough market research and use of the DFMA methodology (Design for Manufacturing and Assembly).

Long service life and easy maintenance

The magnetic palletizer has a long service life, is very easy to maintain and consumes little air. Any wear parts are easy to replace. The central scissor mechanism consists of two cylinders to ensure the palletizer is switched on and off evenly and that the plate magnet is activated in one go. This allows equal application of the magnetic force across the entire surface, which distinguishes Goudsmit palletizers from other types. Goudsmit supplies lightweight magnetic palletizers to various customers worldwide, in some cases running continuously 24 hours a day, with minimal maintenance.
