This section provides an overview for pallet transfer modules as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 5 pallet transfer module manufacturers and their company rankings.
A pallet transfer module is a module that automates the transfer of raw materials, products, and pallets used to transport them within a production plant.
Although material loading/unloading is an important task in factory production, it does not directly lead to profits and requires a lot of labour force, storage space, and equipment such as forklifts, so it is desirable to save as much labor as possible.
The pallet transfer module can reduce the cost of transfer operations, and the general-purpose design of the pallet transfer module can also reduce the labor required for design.
Pallet transfer modules are mainly used to automate production lines for lithium-ion batteries and electronic components.
Automation enables high-speed loading and unloading of components, jigs, and products, and since a wide variety of modules are available, the shape, size, and drive method of the line can be designed in any combination according to the purpose and conditions of the facility.
Modularization also makes it easy to increase, decrease, or change processes, making it possible to accommodate high-mix, low-volume production.
The pallet transfer modules realizes flexible, pallet transfer by combining modules such as lifters (vertical movement), shifters (change of direction), rotators, linear movement, positioning, sensors, etc. Each module is basically a unique power supply unit.
Since each module basically has its own power supply and air cylinder, it is possible to drive only a part of the modules as needed.
In addition, since the modules are designed to be connected to each other, the Structure of and installation standards are standardized, allowing smooth transfer between modules. Modules are equipped with positioning and pallet detection devices or drive systems to prevent accidents.
Large modules can also be used to manage large pallets for storing products and parts, and can be linked to a production control system to manage the receipt and dispatch of parts and rearrange pallets in preparation for delivery.
