Mixed Case Palletizing

The next generation

Ergonomic manual or full automatic

Our end of line mixed palletizing solutions are designed for sustained productivity. In manual or automatic operation, it achieves substantial reduction of ergonomically challenging jobs (health & safety) and therefore labor costs. The simple mechanical design supports the highest throughput while increasing operational efficiency and cost effectiveness.
