Recently released , the UltraPAL system is a high-performance, modular palletizing system that can be optimized for flexibility and speed on a given product mix.
With the highest production speeds in the corrugated box manufacturing industry, the UltraPAL combines the proven layer-forming technology deployed in hundreds of Alliance box plant installations with a new state-of-the-art dual lift layer placement / load forming system. UltraPAL modules can be mixed and matched depending on the end users product mix and speed requirements.
The Raptor XR is a fully automatic robotic load former with an integrated vision system. Advanced optical recognition technology identifies the exact location and skew of each bundle as it moves down the conveyor, allowing the robot to grasp the bundle "on the fly" and quickly place it in its proper position with the load.
The RAPTOR XR produces great load quality and can automatically insert both tie sheets and bottom sheets. The system sets up automatically. Improves overall productivity and reduces risk of operator fatigue and injuries.
The RAPTOR PAL automatically builds patterned units from bundles. Individual incoming bundles are grabbed by the Robot’s end-of-arm tool and positioned on the tier building conveyor. Once the layer is turned it advances to the tier lift to be transferred to the load. When the desired layer count is reached, the load discharges automatically.
The RAPTOR PAL produces great load quality and can automatically insert both tie sheets and bottom sheets. The system sets up automatically. Operators have more time for quality control.
The Raven is a cost-effective Robotic LOADMASTER suitable for medium speed, 50” Flexo Folder Gluers
Raven’s intended application is for machines whose speeds are limited by operator fatigue. Raven shows up to work every day,
will run the majority of your product mix at higher speeds than
an operator can, and do so without the risk of a soft tissue injury.
Included in the package

• Tie and Bottom Sheet delivery systems
• Robot and bundle handling tooling
• High-performance LOADMASTER with robot interface and
• Fencing, guarding and zero energy lockouts
• Installation supervision and training
• Fits most existing LOADMASTER pits - Existing LOADMASTER
can be redeployed
• The robot may be parked and the LOADMASTER can be run
manually if desired
Modular LOADMASTER III
The Modular LOADMASTER III is an enhancement of the conventional LOADMASTER platform that allows for higher throughput by including additional modules to decrease incremental process times. The Modular LOADMASTER III design continues to be capable of its previous design features by allowing an operator to build stacked unit loads from individual bundles of material without the need to lift each bundle. In addtion, the Modular LOADMASTER III can be equipped with modules to further increase bundle throughput, nest unit exit time and automate bottom sheet placement. With a fully optioned Modular LOADMASTER III, load forming station throughput can be increased by as much as double while allowing the operator to manage all aspects of their corrugated box manufacturing machines from the upgraded LOADMASTER III operating station.
