Clevertech Torpedo system is a high speed automatic depalletizing solution able to depalletize up to 10 layers per minute. The system can handle empty or filled cans and large variety of layers with different weight and height. Different products such as empty aluminum cans, composite cans, steel cans can be depalletized using suitable picking devices (magnetic head / vacuum head).
The main, innovative characteristic of the Torpedo system is that the depalletization is performed by a robotic pick-and-place system, which allows all the problems of traditional pushing devices to be avoided. The use of a second, auxiliary robot for management of the layer pads, top frames and empty pallets allows them to be stacked for return to the can manufacturers. The TORPEDO system allowed the customer’s requirements for high efficiency standards and improved logistics management to be met.
The Torpedo system allows to have a totally automatic and flexible pick and place management of interlayers, top frames and pallets, all of these elements are stacked on a suitable pallet already provided by the Torpedo system. The machine is user friendly, this means that operators can easily handle the row materials discharge at ground level (stack of empty pallet, layer pads, top frames on different pallet). The dumping of the raw materials is independent from the main running of the machine: the work flow is continuous and no waist of time is permitted.
This system can be customized to satisfy customer demands and requirements. Speed, flexibility and high level of integration are the key of Torpedo success in the world.
