Industrial Resources Machine Stacks, Dispenses Pallets

Industrial Resources of Michigan is offering a new In-Line Pallet Accumulator-Dispenser for pallet recycling operations. The machine will stack, accumulate or dispense pallets as needed.

It is controlled by a photo-electric eye on the opposite side of the pallet and can allow pallets to pass through, stack and accumulate or dispense, depending on the user’s needs.

When a pallet is removed from the conveyor at a work station, the control device detects an empty space on the conveyor and will dispense a pallet. When the control device detects that the space is occupied by a pallet, it will stack and accumulate pallets until another pallet is called for. If a pallet enters the accumulator-dispenser at the same time a pallet is called for, the pallet will pass straight through and go to the empty space on the line.

For more information about the new In-Line Pallet Accumulator-Dispenser, call Industrial Resources at (616) 677-1241, fax (616) 677-1788, or visit its Web site at www.industrialresourcesusa.com.
