The Model 1500A is a medium speed fully automatic bag palletizer with a sustained rate of 25 bags per minute. It is designed and built for heavy industrial use in the most severe environments. The machine also features Chantland-MHS’ patented continuous-motion turn wheel. Options and configurations are available to fit a wide variety of applications and plant layouts.

Operation Description:

The Model 1500A Palletizer system begins with the Incline Bag Flattener, which flattens, shapes, and elevates the bags to the proper height for entry into the palletizer. From the Flattener, bags enter the Bag Accumulation and Pacing Conveyors. Together, these conveyors regulate the flow of bags to produce the 25-bags-per-minute palletizing rate. Optional Check-Weigh and Reject Conveyors follow the Pacing and Accumulation Conveyor. Rejected bags are automatically discharged to the Reject Accumulation Conveyor where they can be hand stacked on a reject pallet. Next, bags enter the Bag Positioning Conveyor where they are automatically manipulated to form a pre-programmed bag stacking pattern. The Layer Forming Conveyor provides a staging area. When a half layer is completed, the bags are transfered onto the Stripper Plates by the Layer Pusher. Once a full layer is in place on the Stripper Plates, the layer is squared on all sides. The Stripper Plates open, and the layer is deposited onto the pallet, which is located in the Pallet Elevator, just beneath the Stripper Plates. The Pallet Elevator will then raise up to the compress the top layer against the bottom of the Stripper Plates to perform a layer compression cycle that occurs on every layer. When the pallet receives the pre-programmed number of layers, the elevator lowers and discharges the finished pallet onto the Filled Pallet Conveyor where it can be picked up by a fork truck. At the same time, a new pallet from the Empty Pallet Dispenser enters the Pallet Elevator and raises to the "load" position, ready to receive the next layer of bags. The only manpower required on this fully automatic system is a fork truck operator to fill the Empty Pallet Dispenser and to remove the finiished pallets from the Full Pallet Conveyor.
