HAVER SpeedFlexx® – The high-speed direct truck loader
Ensures high capacity utilisation of packing and palletizing plants
The HAVER SpeedFlexx® is a high-speed direct truck loader with a loading capacity of up to 260 tonnes per hour. The system’s flexibility also allows delivery to stock in the event of dead truck times. Therefore high packing and palletizing plant capacity utilisation is assured even during times of missing trucks. By combining the proven components of stationary palletizing technology with conveying technology, the SpeedFlexx® system offers unique and reliable operation. Filled bags are handled with shipping and in-house pallets, as well as sheets.
Provides for high loading speeds by feeding two trucks
The loading cycle begins with the scanning of the truck-bed surface. Using optical analysis technology, a three-dimensional image is generated and assures that the truck is ready to be loaded and the truck bed is free. During the loading process, open trucks on two travel lanes are sequentially loaded with stacks of bags. This is done by a feeding rack installed over the truck. Once the loading of the first truck is completed, the SpeedFlexx® changes lanes within 11 seconds and the second truck, which in the meantime had positioned itself in parallel, is then loaded.
Also used for palletized stock
Continuously high loading speeds are achieved during peak times. Considering the anti-cyclic demand of the daily profile of a loading system, timeframes with reduced truck frequency will lead to the filling of the adjacent pallet stock. Here stocking is handled in the usual manner by using forklift trucks. This enables continuous use of the packing and palletizing plant, and thus optimum utilisation of installed capacity. Moreover, in the event of bottlenecks, it is also possible to reverse this process, i.e. to feed the SpeedFlexx® from a filled stock.
The SpeedFlexx® is impressive because of its loading speed and the unique logistical flexibility it offers to the market.
