Columbia Machine introduces the FLD2500 floor level infeed conventional palletizer.  

The FLD palletizers are all capable of being equipped with a fully integrated stretch wrapper that allows for concurrent “stack and wrap” load building at higher rates than previously achievable.

The FLD2500 utilizes a dual hoist concept and an electric overhead row pusher. When combined with a roller style layer stripper apron, the dual-hoist format allows the footprint to be reduced significantly (40%) over floor level palletizers with similar throughput capacity.

The movement and positioning of each hoist is numerically controlled using servo technology. This allows for faster and more accurate machine movements leading to greater throughput and easier set up and programmability.

The FLD2500 is capable of palletizing virtually any package type including unwrapped trays, film only bundles, plastic totes, RPCs, and many others too. 

Options include fully integrated stretch wrapping, smart diagnostics with video playback to assist maintenance personnel in identifying the cause of a machine stoppage, and a servo actuated touchless turning infeed for gentle package handling, display ready case orienting, or four-way “labels out” layer forming (and several more options).
