Stockfeeds Plant Orders Fuji-Ace Robot Palletiser

Accuweigh recently sold a Japanese made, Fuji-Ace Palletising Robot and a locally manufactured palletising and conveying line to the Lismore branch of Norco Agribusiness.

Accupak (Accuweigh’s manufacturing division) designs and locally manufactures complete palletising lines to client’s specs and it was these advantages that assisted Accuweigh being awarded the robot palletiser supply contract.

Accuweigh’s Victorian Sales Manager, Jim Lambros, stated other important benefits that were recognised by Norco Agribusiness included:

  • the flexible design layout allowing all the palletising equipment to fit into the existing floor space available.
  • all other supplied components (apart from the Fuji-Ace Robot Palletiser) are designed and manufactured in Australia by Accuweigh’s own manufacturing division, Accupak Pty Ltd.
  • local backup and support with trained staff in all major Australian cities, including Newcastle.
  • Accuweigh’s ability to meet the short time frame for commissioning the palletisiing line.
  • the client’s confidence in Accuweigh’s profile as Australia’s largest industrial weighing and packaging company

  1. Bag Elevating Conveyor; positioned under the Vertical Form-Fill-Seal (VFFS) Machine {supplied by others} to remove filled bags and elevate them to the Vibrating Conditioning Conveyor
  2. Vibrating Conditioning Conveyor; designed to ‘condition’ the filled bags prior to palletising
  3. Bag Pick-Up Conveyor; Robot picks up the filled bags from this conveyor
  4. Fuji-Ace EC101 Robot Palletiser; Transfers filled bags from the Bag Pick-Up Conveyor to the pallet, stacking the bags to the programmed pattern configuration
