Baust Materialflusssysteme is now offering customers a new type of pallet exchanger, a starter model in a consequently simplified version – the PW 500. The new device is mainly suitable for handling products such as drinks crates or food boxes that can be clamped from two sides only and are able to withstand less sensitive treatment.
As the manufacturer emphasises with regard to the new version in his product range of pallet exchangers, using the clamping method, the PW 500 is able to reload a variety of goods and receptacles that do not appear suitable at first glance. These include, for example, bottle cartons and Tetra Paks. In its simplest form, the PW 500 pallet exchanger was developed for use with manual or electrically driven pallet trucks. According to Baust Materialflusssysteme, at the same time it is thus possible to reload goods to aluminium or plastic pallets, not only for hygienic reasons. It is also possible to reload from one size of transport pallet to another. This
The basic version of the PW 500 is pneumatically driven. However, the manufacturer also offers the pallet exchanger as a hydraulic version. Baust maintains it is possible to integrate an extended version of this type of pallet exchanger featuring an automatic lifting function and conveyor technology in the automatic material flow if required.
“With a price considerably lower than our previous entry prices, we wish to make an attractive offer for companies whose products exactly match these requirements,“ Managing Director Franz Baust said, addressing the target group of the new PW 500 pallet exchanger.
