The HL6200 is the third machine in the trilogy of new high level high speed palletizers from Columbia Machine (palletizing.com). Over the past two years, Columbia has completed the redesign for the high level family of palletizers: the HL6200, HL7200 and HL9200. The goal of the redesign was to further enhance safety, flexibility and performance with a contemporary, completely modular and clean design palletizer line that is extremely user friendly.
Columbia is renowned for the industry-leading safety and guarding system that provides “next level protection”. On the HL6200, this standard package includes Category 3, Performance Level D safety components that utilizes fully integrated upper and lower guarding, full height light curtains, dual slot automatic hoist pins (patent applied for), ergonomic low step-height machine access, level interior rollers surfaces and interlocked hoist area access doors. Fortress trapped-key access components are also available to allow for OSHA compliant Minor Servicing. This safety package keeps your employees safe while still meeting production demands by providing convenient and safe access when needed.
Unparalleled in flexibility, the HL6200 combines Columbia’s easy to operate Product Manager HMI, bi-parting stripper apron and modular construction into its compact footprint. Users can effortlessly create and modify layer patterns, view and export production reports, adjust drive speeds and timer settings, access manuals and schematics all through the HMI. The bi-parting stripper apron, combined with the case stops in the row forming area, allow the HL6200 to create gaps both front-to-back and or side-to-side. The modular construction found in Columbia’s new series of high level palletizers increases the flexibility of the HL6200 by allowing for standard speed enhancements such as a dual infeed or conversion to an inline configuration to meet future line speeds. These features on the HL6200 create the ultimate palletizer that is guaranteed to meet both current and future production requirements.
Maximum performance is found 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with Columbia’s HL6200 while consistently palletizing up to an amazing 120 cases per minute! (pattern dependent). There are many standard features that make this palletizer the easiest and most reliable palletizer to operate in the industry including the simple yet robust overhead row and layer pusher components. The enhanced alarm indicators and system diagnostics, fallen case detection, Smart Squeeze technology, and machine I/O status screens quickly communicate to the operator the status of the machine to aid in rapid machine recovery and ensure maximum uptime.
With the superior reliability and accuracy that Columbia palletizers are known for, combined with the ultimate in Safety, Flexibility and Performance, the HL6200 is sure to safely meet the demands of your production requirements today and for years to come.
