Intelligrated launches Alvey 950F and 750 series hybrid palletizers

High-speed floor-level and mid-speed robotic hybrids maximize efficiency and flexibility for retail-ready shelf and aisle displays

(CINCINNATI: Jan. 28, 2014)-Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces the release of two new additions to its hybrid palletizer family, the Alvey® 950F and Alvey 750 series. Both palletizers integrate robotic arms to perform flexible and accurate product handling and layer forming.


Ideal for applications with reduced primary or secondary packaging, the 950F and 750 series gently handle product to create stable single-SKU or mixed-SKU pallet loads and can satisfy retail-ready requirements, including labels-out configurations for end-of-aisle displays.

The floor-level model of Intelligrated's Alvey 950 series high-speed in-line hybrid palletizer, the 950F operates similarly to the standard model with the benefit of a floor-level infeed. This enables the 950F to connect with higher-speed production lines, maximizing existing manpower with packaging line personnel supervising palletizing operations and eliminating the need for long overhead conveyor runs.

The first mid-speed hybrid palletizer on the market, the Alvey 750 series handles small products exceptionally well, ideal for consumer packaged goods, health and beauty, and converted paper applications. The 750 delivers throughput speeds up to 50 cases per minute and features an optional in-hoist stretch bander or wrapper which enhances load stability, improves cost savings, and reduces floor space requirements.

"With these two additions, the Alvey family of palletizers offers the right capability for any palletizing operation," said Earl Wohlrab, robotics and palletizers product manager, Intelligrated. "We'll continue to build innovative solutions with the latest technology backed by the most dependable name in the industry."

Intelligrated now offers high-level mid-speed hybrid palletizers, as well as high- and low-level high-speed in-line hybrid models.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
