Case Study: Over and Under

Alba Manufacturing - Case StudyProblem

What’s the best way to integrate a series of conveyors to handle an empty pallet infeed and a full pallet take away within a simple robotic pallet-build cell?

Solution

The end user, a wall board manufacturer worked with an Alba distributor. The system sequenced an empty pallet on the lower level conveyor and utilized a scissors lift conveyor unit to lift the palletized load once the robot operations were complete. The lift conveyor then transferred the load onto the upper level conveyor for take away via fork trucks.

Results

With Alba’s solid reputation in engineering and design, Alba provided a welded construction design at a price point well below the bolt-together, type of conveyor. The rugged construction met the toughest demand and rigors of forklift abuse and daily throughput requirements.

Alba’s name is synonymous with real tangible value and complete service. We make sure our customers are satisfied during every step of the process – from the request for quote, approval drawings, ordering, and production to final installation.
