Efficient pallet handling together with driverless forklift trucks

PALOMAT® AGV

Electric pallet dispenser Frost proof pallet dispenserAir and electric pallet dispenser

Driverless forklift trucks and the PALOMAT® AGV pallet magazine are a perfect pair when it comes to fully automating and streamlining the flow of pallets. PALOMAT® AGV is an ergonomic aid, which stacks and destacks empty pallets individually at floor level, fully automatically.

The PALOMAT® is delivered with an interface for external equipment, which makes it possible to exchange signals between the PALOMAT® and driverless forklift trucks. Thus the two can communicate independently and maintain a constant and effective flow of pallets to and from the production line.

PALOMAT® AGV simultaneously also ensures uniform docking and thus optimises the workflow of the driverless forklift truck. The PALOMAT® is always ready to either deliver (destack) a pallet or take (stack) a pallet from the driverless forklift truck at a uniform floor level. And if the PALOMAT® is empty or full, it will signal the driverless forklift truck, which will automatically ensure that the PALOMAT® is filled or emptied.

Why PALOMAT®AGV?

  • Delivered with the AGV interface with 24VDC I/O signals for external equipment
  • Ensures a uniform docking – always stacks and destacks at floor level
  • Delivered with or without software (a complete program within the PLC)
  • Is offered in both a 100% electric and a pneumatic version
  • Can communicate with all kinds of driverless forklift trucks
  • Delivered with complete documentation in your customers' languages
  • Easy installation

 

The pallet magazine/ pallet dispenser PALOMAT is a standard pallet magazine but has a lot of possibilities when it comes to types af pallets and sizes. Customer-specific solutions can be offered.

As an option the PALOMAT can be modified to enable pallet handling in cold environments down to –25°C.

PALOMAT® AGV is delivered with or without software:

With software: including the program in the PLC, which communicates with the interface. It is ready to communicate with driverless forklift trucks.

Without software: the program in the PLC needs to be modified (using a TIA-program), so that it can communicate with the interface. The PLC has been prepared with wiring.

 

All models include the AGV interface with 24VDC I/O signals for external equipment, which makes it possible to exchange signals between the PALOMAT® and AGV:

AGV interface:

Output from PALOMAT® to AGV: [ Persistent indication ]

• Signal for empty magazine (destacking)

• Signal that a new pallet is ready to be retrieved (destacking)

• Signal for full magazine (stacking)

• Signal that the magazine is ready for a new pallet (stacking)

• Error/breakdown signal

Input from AGV to PALOMAT®: [ Pulse 3-4 sec. ]

• Signal to choose Destacking

• Signal to choose Stacking

• Signal to choose Emptying

For pallet magazine PALOMAT® AGV we offer the following options:

 
Option - Truck protection for the pallet magazine PALOMAT
Truck protection

The truck protection is produced in 10 mm steel and can be offered as an extra protection of the front sensors.

The truck protection is two separate parts, which are mounted into the floor in front of the PALOMAT®. The solution is used especially by companies, which handle pallets by forklifts.

Option - Switch disconnector for the pallet magazine PALOMAT
Switch disconnector

The switch disconnector enables disconnection from the main supply right on the machine. The switch disconnector can be locked, e.g. when servicing the machine.

This is an advantage and a safety feature for maintenance of the PALOMAT® unit. The switch disconnector is positioned under the main supply.

Option - Pallet handling cold environment
Pallet handling in cold environments down to –25°C

The PALOMAT can be modified with other actuators to enable pallet handling in cold environments down to –25°C.
