Ska Fabricating has long supported the direct-to-container digital printing industry with its bulk palletisers and depalletisers, which are used across the globe for can decoration as well as craft beverage packaging. As the decorating industry shifts to even higher speeds, Ska’s engineers have been working to provide solutions to support and propel these systems.

The BAM Bulk Palletiser offers a completely automatic solution for palletising: it efficiently stacks layers of empty cans with tier sheet and top frame placement, banding, and pallet management. Empty pallets are also managed before they are fed into the palletiser, and once decorated, cans are conveyed into the palletiser where neat layers are formed, swept onto a pallet, and separated with tier sheets. When the pallet is complete, a top frame is placed and the pallet is transferred to the outfeed conveyor for banding. This machine is ideal for palletising cans at speeds up to 1,000 CPM, and is a wholly automatic solution for this industry.

Along with high speed, this system has been designed from the bottom-up with quick changeovers in mind. The universal handling accepts cans with different vertical heights with no changeover time at all, and any changeover with a change to can diameter takes less than 15 minutes with our quick changeover kit installed.

Ska Fabricating is headed to the Craft Brewers Conference from 7-10 May in Nashville.
