Can Palletizer Systems Full Height • Half Height • Full Automatic • Semi Automatic

Ska Fabricating brings our automation expertise to the other end of the line with our bulk can palletizers. Designed for companies specializing in can sleeving, labeling, printing or decorating. With simple operation and proven performance our can palletizer systems provide the cornerstone for any line requiring bulk can palletizing.

Can palletizers are available in a number of configurations to match available space, speed requirements and budget. The half-height systems are made for half pallets of aluminum cans. Standard U.S. half pallets are 44" x 56" and come with 11 layers of 12 oz cans. The full height palletizers are made for standard full-size pallets that come with 21 layers of 12 oz cans.

Palletizer Configurations

Palletizers are available in a variety of configurations to match the speed, height and amount of automation required. All Palletizers can be ordered in half height or full height sizes. Semi-Auto palletizers run up to 220 cans per minute depending on the conveyor size. The Full-Auto palletizer runs at speeds up to 600 cans per minute. All palletizers can be used with full height depalletizers or custom height depalletizers depending on location and ceiling height.

Palletizer GraphFull-Auto Palletizers

The Ska Fabricating™ full-auto palletizers are designed for operations that require high speed and low manual labor. They are available in both full height and half height sizes. The full-auto palletizer come with a 15 ft MatTop conveyor for maximum accumulation. Row formation is fully automatic and requires no manual layer preparation. The palletizer removes every 42nd row of cans in order to create a standard pallet row formation (see diagram below). Pallets of 12 oz cans come with 20 rows of 10 cans each and 21 rows of 9 cans each. On semi-auto palletizers this row configuration is done manually. Once the extra row of cans is removed, the cans are swept onto the pallet and a layer tier sheet is automatically added by the palletizer.

Palletizer GraphSemi-Auto Palletizer

Semi-auto palletizers are available in either half height or full height configurations. There are two basic configurations of the semi-auto palletizers. The primary difference between the two configurations is speed.

One configuration comes with a 5 ft MatTop conveyor that is capable of running up to 60 cans per minute. The faster semi-auto palletizer comes with a 10 ft MatTop conveyor and will handle line speeds up to 220 cans per minute. All of the semi-auto palletizers require some manual assistance with layer preparation and adding tier sheets in between layers.
