IMC America (Booth 1975) is presenting the new CAMotion VHBP, designed to palletize variable height strapped or wrapped mail bundles in compliance with US Postal standards. The VHBP is flexible and accommodates various signature sizes. CAMotion’s Advanced Motion Control combined with proprietary sortation algorithms enables the VHBP to stack an industry leading 40 saddle stitched or perfect bound per minute.
CAMotion’s vertical accumulator uses a proprietary algorithm that evaluates every possible permutation to select the optimal combination of bundles to make uniform height stacks. In the event of an out of spec stack, the palletizer sets it aside until it can be placed on the top of the finished pallet.
The sorted bundles are routed to the stacker where they are aligned to create uniform height stacks for the palletizer.
CAMotion’s custom end effector can handle up to 12” of stacked bundles and can position up to 16 stacks / minute. The palletizer tightly positions them in automatic or user specified interlocking patterns ready for shipment.
Completed pallets are tightly packed in interlocking stacks that are ready to be wrapped or shipped.
