The end of arm tool is designed to accommodate various case sizes along with multiple quantity options. The cups can be customized electronically to the product being run. This design eliminates the need for physical adjustment.

Douglas designed and built the pallet dispenser to increase runtime and system rate capabilities. The dispenser holds 12-15 pallets and the magazine can be reloaded while the machine is running.

The pallet magazine dispenses pallets onto a conveyor at a rate of up to 90 pallets per hour. To increase performance dependent on environment, the dispenser works with a conveyor on either side or out the back.

This system is automatic, eliminating the need for the operator to manually intervene with each pallet. It is also capable of handling pallets with broken boards or defects.

Having its own HMI offers great flexibility and increased functionality by being a stand-alone unit with its own start/stop capabilities.
