Our pallet accumulator and return system are used to act as a buffer.
This allows both return and accumulation of production pallets to the concrete products machine, and to storage for additional uses within the system. Integrating a pallet accumulator-buffer, permits the wet and dry side to be independent of one another, when it comes
to the supply of production pallets. This production pallet buffering is particularly useful when specialty products are manufactured that require different pallet return rates.
For example, when a product that is taller or shorter than the standard settings is produced, only every second level is loaded and it requires buffering. Before the production pallets are buffered, they are cleaned and if necessary, oiled by a separate sub-system. Accumulating requires containing and organizing the pallets in a buffer area and destacking them while transporting them to the production machine.
Depending on the output of the production machine and available space, different systems can be deployed:
- 2-head buffer transfer accumulator with overhead clamps
- 4-head buffer transfer accumulator with overhead clamps
- 6-head buffer transfer accumulator with overhead clamps
- Accumulator transport car system
Pallet buffer accumulators can also be used when manufacturing, transporting to kiln, and cubing a variety of products simultaneously. We can customize these systems to accommodate not only our own equipment, but many models made by other suppliers.
