Full height bulk depallitizer for cans/bottles
The tag on this depal indicates that it was manufactured by SMB machinery and the number on it is 99-1997. I am not convinced that 1997 indicates the age of the machine. What I am told happened is hat the depal was custom manufactured sometime prior to 1997. In 1997, SMB purchased the depal and made it fully automatic. I am told that there was $50,000 of coin put into it at that point to update the pneumatics, and add sensors, new motor drives, and a rather pricey PLC. The unit was then installed in a 7-Up plant in Jackson, MS. There it was running both cans and bottles. It was there until the plant was decommissioned and we purchased it and brought it back to Denver and began to set it up. We got the installation about halfway complete when we were informed by our glass manufacturer that the bottle we were purchasing was going to be made on half height pallets. We agonized for a couple of months whether to finish the installation knowing that this depal was overkill for half height pallets. We have arrived at the decision to sell it.
Speeds; up to 600 bpm or cpm.
Fully automatic. Operator needs only to remove the straps once pallet is fed into elevator.
Pallet discharged into an automatic pallet stacker
Tier sheets are automatically collected and stacked once bottles are swept off.
Accumulation table can hold more than two tiers worth of bottles/cans before being fed into the single filer.
Infeed conveyor can hold up to 3 pallets of glass/cans
Discharge height is 10’4”, that could be lowered approximately 6” by removing the legs off of the depal or you could always raise it higher if you prefer.
The infeed conveyor is approximately 15’ long and 4’ wide.
The elevator portion is 7’ square on a side and 13’ high.
The accumulation table is approximately 5’ wide by 12’ long.
The single filer is approximately 3’ wide by 12’ long.
The pallet stacker is approximately five foot on a side
The unit is currently set up for full height pallets that are 48” by 44”. It can accommodate pallets up to 44” by 56”.
All of the motor drives, sensors, and the PLC are Allen Bradley. The PLC model is SLC 500. http://ab.rockwellautomation.com/pro...ollers/slc-500
The pneumatic controls are all manufactured by Numatics. http://www.numatics.com/Home.aspx
We also have a step up transformer available since our building did not have 480 voltage.
The condition of the machine is used. We have tested all of the electronics and everything is fine on that front. The air hoses will need to be replaced as many of them were cut when it was decommissioned. Much of the wiring has been reconnected but not everything so there will be some electrical work. The conveyor sections are all in good shape. The motors are all in good shape. The machine has some rust but not significant. What we do not have are the following: an operator platform, a lowerator, some of the railing should be replaced, one of the infeed conveyor chains is missing.
The pictures included were taken today, February 1st. As I said, the unit was half installed before we had to reevaluate. We can, of course, assist with uninstalling and loading the machine. It is available immediately. We have approximately $28k into the machine including what it cost to ship it out here. We are under no illusions, we don’t expect to sell it for that so at this point we will entertain any reasonable offer.
The unit can be inspected at our facility at 4420 glencoe street Denver, CO 80216.
