Columbia Machine is redefining the “High Speed Palletizing” market with the launch of the NEW HL7200 High Speed, Inline Palletizer. The HL7200 high speed palletizer incorporates industry-leading safety package, ultimate flexibility and highest performance level in a robust and reliable palletizer that is easy to operate. Columbia’s industry-leading safety package includes Category 3 electrical safety components including dual channel safety interlocks and full height light curtains positioned on the full load discharge and empty pallet infeed. A dual slot automatic hoist pin latching system on the full load hoist and pallet dispenser hoist provide a redundant fail-safe protection system.
Fully integrated upper and lower guarding with viewing panels and multiple access doors that incorporate a trapped key door access system provide the safety and function that meets OSHA requirements for Minor Servicing. The HL7200 provides the ultimate in flexibility by incorporating Columbia’s new programmable laner technology with Columbia’s proven soft turn and configurable layer table to provide accurate and stable layer forming. Columbia is the first in the conventional inline palletizer industry to provide an HMI where the operator can create new patterns or modify existing patterns via the HMI. This combination makes the HL7200 ideal for reliable handling of current and future package types and sizes. Maximum performance is found 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with Columbia’s HL7200 while accurately palletizing 72 to 120 cases per minute (depending on pattern). There are many standard features that make this palletizer the easiest to operate in the industry: Minor Servicing, dropped case detection, Smart Squeeze technology, multi-colored light stack to show machine status at a glance and advanced diagnostics and I/O status screens quickly communicate to the operator the status of the machine.
