This compact palletizer automatically accumulates and stacks plastic totes or returnable plastic containers to form interlocking pallet loads that are secure for shipping. The system features an exclusive tier alignment positioning mechanism that gently jogs each layer during stacking to interlock the totes with the previous layer. After depositing the layer, this mechanism automatically squares the pallet to ensure stability for shipping. The system operates at floor level, eliminating the need to build costly overhead platforms and allowing plant personnel to monitor machine operation while performing other tasks. Clean, open construction and low-level access points simplify routine maintenance. From infeed, through accumulation, stacking and full pallet exit, all functions are operated by PLC, which ensures precise operation and simplified control.
