Date: 28.06.2022Source: Qimarox

Qimarox, a leading manufacturer of components for material handling systems has announced the launch of a new palletiser machine dedicated to the logistics market.

As a consequence of the pandemic the ever rising e-commerce business has seen a massive growth and is one of the most rapidly growing markets in the world economy. The transportation trends in 2021 shows this as well where the biggest trend is the necessity to deliver more products in less time and with most of these products being shipped in containers, this brings challenges.

Unloading a container is a process that requires maximum expertise to make the entire process a success. Usually, ships are packed to full capacity to ensure that there is maximum utilisation of the available space. Unpacking such containers not only poses a risk to the workforce involved but also damage to the contents. Once the container arrives and is received, container handlers carefully unload it using cranes, forklifts, or through manual handling. These tasks require manual labour and can become quite expensive. Also, while finding the right people to do the manual unloading is getting harder, Qimarox offers a better solution.

The Qimarox Highrunner HR9 palletiser is designed exactly for this purpose. It is designed for logistic operations where many different products need to be handled in short batches. Of course it is able to do longer batches of the same product as well. The automation of this process has many benefits for companies.

The unique and patented layer-formation system of the Highrunner HR9 can generate a large variety of layer patterns that can be selected automatically or generated with the state-of-the-art pattern generator. The specially designed pattern generator can generate a large variety of layer patterns that can be selected automatically from the interface. The generator even recommends the best way to use the pattern, this way anyone can operate the machine. If the installation is equipped with a full 3D product scanner it is even possible to have the system working fully autonomously. For more visit qimarox.com
