Kaufman Engineered Systems KPal K5 Group
Full Layer and Bulk Robotic Palletizing Systems - Fast, Dynamic, and Reliable Palletizing Solutions designed for containers, cases, bundles and trays.
The new Kaufman K5 Group of palletizers are a perfect fit for your high speed palletizing needs! This series features a tier formation area which provides a unique combination of speed, flexibility, and control. For containers, speed is king and the K5 group does not disappoint! For case, trays or bundles, a primary benefit of the K5 group is its ability to orient the product sides in the desired orientation on the load. This is especially useful for retail marketing where specific sides of products are to be positioned on the exterior of the unit load. Another distinct benefit to the K5 group is its ability to handle small case and bundle sizes.
In 1995 Kaufman Engineered Systems designed and released their first robotic EOAT (end of arm tool) to bulk palletize glass and plastic containers. The goal was to build a tool which could accommodate palletizing a full layer of containers and distribute dunnage including pallets, tier sheets, and top frames. 26 years and 5 revisions later, the patented Kaufman K5 EOAT is a simple yet effective solution for palletizing many products including cases, trays, bundles, and containers.
Combine the K5 EOAT with Kaufman’s 75+ years of material handling and stretch wrap equipment offerings along with 26 years of partnership with FANUC Robotics, we offer complete end of line system solutions. Kaufman Engineered Systems is the designer, manufacturer, and integrator. Our Kaufman team installs, startups and services your new system at your facility. This provides our customers with a single point of contact and one company they can rely on to get the project executed.
