Wrapping your pallets
Integrated Machinery joined the HMPS Group in June 2021 and has since transformed into the hub for our National Service Centre based in Heidelberg VIC.
Now known as HMPS VIC, we continue to offer our range of stretch wrappers from semi-auto solutions all the way to fully-automated stretch wrapping lines capable of being integrated into a HMPS turnkey solution or palletiser.

Another incredible RSC Case Packer from the HMPS team. This one is designed to handle multiple weights and dimensions of shredded cheese bags
The palletising system accumulates cartons into groups of 6. The ABB robot picks up the group of 6 and moves them past a scanner to read the batch code data on each carton for serialisation logging. Once all of the products are loaded into the shipper the top flaps are closed and taped and a label is placed on the shipper, and scanned for serialisation logging before being palletised.
ADDE designed and built a central palletiser for AstraZeneca in Sydney that uses autonomous vehicles (AGV) for all pallet movements. A mezzanine was installed to allow the UR10 robots upstairs to palletise while the pallets are finished downstairs. The system palletises onto cardboard Euro Pallets that are moved on customised tables. It uses Swisslog CarryPick vehicles which lift the tables with their integrated lifting system. The vehicles navigate using markers on the floor around a fixed path. The system is not 'people safe', mainly because of the large industrial robots downstairs, so these marker following vehicle are fit for purpose in this application. The system has 2 vehicles on the mezzanine and 3 downstairs in the pallet finishing operations all under the control of the master fleet management system.
ADDE design and built this central palletiser for the AstraZeneca facility in North Ryde, Sydney. The system collects product from the existing production lines, lifts the cases on custom designed lifter system and load them onto a Denipro EasyChain ring conveyor. The cases are then transferred onto Interroll roller conveyors and transferred out to the warehouse. A mezzanine floor was constructed to minimize floor space and allow palletising upstairs and pallet finishing down stairs. 7 UR10 collaborative robots palletise onto cardboard Euro pallets which are transported in custom tables. Swisslog Carrypick autonomous vehicles (AGV) provide all pallet movements with dedicated lifts transferring tables between the floors. Down stairs the pallets are scanned, wrapped, labelled, shrouded with a full cover then strapped with corner protection posts, labelled again before loading onto an out-feed accumulation conveyor.
A great application where a collaborative robot is the ideal solution. In this application, product from another process needs to be reintroduced to the production line. A Universal Robot UR5 mounted onto a movable trolley is wheeled into position. Trays of product are loaded onto the trolley and the robot proceeds to place them onto the in-feed conveyor as a consistent line rate of 60 cards per minute. No fixed guarding and safe operator access to the robot loading area for changing trays without stopping has the robot and operator safely working collaboratively within the same work space.
A unique telescopic retracting gate for conveyor systems. In this application the product rate was reasonably quick so we added a gate open request button (not shown in video). Pushing the button actuated a divert arm that stopped product crossing the gate. After a set time that allows the product already on the gate to clear, the gate lock is released and can be opened. Shutting the gate automatically releases the divert and product conveying resumes.
