Background: Origin is a New Zealand based company that sources industrial equipment either on behalf of New Zealand or Australian based distributors or for its own sales divisions. We have a distributor that is looking to source the below machinery for ongoing distribution and sales into Australasia, PNG and the Pacific Islands.
First Stage Estimated Hours: 5-7 hours
- Source suitable products as laid out below
- Establish that the potential suppliers meet our requirements
- Seek specifications and photos (web links, videos, etc) from 2-5 suitable suppliers
- Seek FOB pricing for one or two sample units from 2-5 suitable suppliers
- Report back to Origin with quotes, details / specifications, contacts, company background information.
Note: After this point Origin staff will arrange site visits which will likely lead onto more work.
Product / Machinery Required:
Automated Gantry Palletizer
An automated machine to place 25kg (55lb) bags / sacks onto a pallet in a predefined pattern.
Product Specifications / Requirements:
- Must be able to lift 25kg multiwall paper valve bags or 25kg woven polyethene bags from a conveyor (included in the system) to a pallet in a predesigned pattern.
- The most common pallet design is 6 bags per layer for 6 layers and four bags on the top layer (seven layers total)
- Space is generally limited so the smaller the machinery the better (this requirement may exclude robot arm systems and favors gantry systems)
- Automatic placing of pallets into the system and removing full pallets isn’t required (this can be manual)
- Pallet wrapping is not required
- High speed is not important
- Quality and reliability is very important
- Accuracy of placement is important
- The pallet size is generally always the same
- The ability to program different placement options and change these quickly is important (in English).
- The ability to manually load a small stack of pallets would be an advantage.
- We will only deal with manufacturers
- We seek the industry leader / market leaders in this technology
- Ideally a developer of technology, rather than a copier
- Ideally over 15 years’ experience specializing in this type of machinery.
