For a well-known Dutch retailer of household goods, Elten delivered two high speed Automatic Dolly Loaders.
Via ground floor level the Operator will feed in stacks of Dollies. At the end of the Infeed Lane the stack of Dollies will be transported to Dolly Loader 1 or Dolly Loader 2 by a Turning Table.
Automatic stacking and destacking of Dolly's
The Dolly Destacker will grip the 2nd lowest Dolly and lift the partial Dolly stack. Single Dollies will be positioned on the loading position.
Automatic loading and unloading of Dolly's
On level 1, loaded totes will arrive. The orientation of the Tote is checked and, if necessary, the Tote will be rotated 180 degrees to stack the loaded Totes.
Automatic lidder for Dolly's
The 1st batch of two Totes will be pushed and lowered. The 2nd batch of two Totes will be pushed and lowered on top of the 1st batch of two Totes. This process continues until the two Stacks of 4 high are completed.
Now the two completed stacks are lowered on top of the single Dolly. Stacks of Lids will be fed into the Dolly Loader and the Automatic Lidder will position 1 Lid on top of the loaded Dolly.
On the next position the loaded Dolly will be automatically strapped and transported out of the Dolly Loader via ground floor level.
