The Pelican Palletizing System

The Pelican Palletizing System was developed to bring maximum utilization of your facility by employing advance motion control technology with unique gantry robotic technology.  The Pelican is well suited for multiple lines with a minimal footprint.  It significantly reduces conveyor requirements by bringing the palletizing to the line, instead of the cases to the palletizer.  Its modular construction allows for reduced initial investment with the ability to easily allow additional bridges.
