1.9 Safety prescriptions

General precautions:
)Before palletizers installation, use and maintenance, read carefully this Manual.
)Check operating space around machine, which must be unhampered, clean and
adequately lighted.
)Each operation on machine must be carried out solely by expressly authorized
personnel.
)Check that all protections and guards be properly placed, that all safety devices be
present and effective and not having been tampered.
)Do not carry out productive running with disabled safeties or fixed guards
uninstalled.
)Do not leave machine with guards dismounted.
)Do not use machine if faulty.
)Machine must be run by authorized personnel only.
)Look after personal safety equipment of personnel operating the machine: use sturdy
work footwear, keep sleeves tight around wrists and however do not wear garments
with hanging parts such as ties, scarves, unbuttoned jacket or torn garments, to avoid
the risk of being caught in palletizer loading and/or unloading area.
)Remove all safety jeopardizing condition before using machine and always inform
maintenance head of all possible operating anomalies.
)Panel must always be kept shut.

Mechanical maintenance main safety prescriptions:

)All operations must be carried out with machine stopped, disconnected from
pneumatic and power supply.
)After all adjustments or maintenance operations, ensure that no tools or foreign
matter remain between palletizers moving elements, so as to avoid damage to
machine and/or accidents to personnel.
)Should machine be intended to handle products noxious to maintenance mans
health, he is to wear individual protections (mask, glasses, gloves, etc.); refer to
information from user who knows how to handle and store such products.

12
)For overhead-area operation, maintenance man must use all due precautions to
prevent being exposed to risk or danger of fall:
-Safety helmet use is compulsory
-Use of safety belt with tight-piece braces fixed to stable parts is compulsory
-Proper scaffolding use is obligatory.
)Never insert your body into machines opening without guards.
)Never use gasoline or flammable solvents as detergent, but always use non toxic, non
flammable authorized commercial solvents
)Do not lubricate palletizer mechanical parts when palletizer is moving.
)Keep area for maintenance operation always clean and dry, removing oil stains, if
any.
)If compressed air is used for part clean when other systems cannot be used, protect
yourself with side-guard glasses and keep pressure to 2 bar maximum.

Electrical maintenance man safety prescriptions:


)Before all operation on panel, ensure that power supply is disconnected.
)After all operation on panel, close it and always shut it with main switchs door
interlock before resetting power supply and start the machine.

2 MACHINE DESCRIPTION

2.1 General description

MOVING PALLET UPWARD-LOADING BAG PALLETIZER MOD. CR1200H

Bag palletizer type CR1200H consists of a modular basic structure equipped with a
series of units.

Basic structure is made up of:

Belt conveyor 4700 mm feed palettizer

External motorization bend with motorized conical roller.

Bag flattener.
Made up of two belt conveyors (lower and upper ones), where the function of the upper
one is to compact bags in transit (for adjustment, see notes in use and maintenance
chapter).

Rotation conveyor:
Bag rotation is done on this conveyor, which consists of 1 belt and 1 motor.

Gripper upper rotation:


This device mounted on infeed conveyor makes the bags turn as indicated by the
palletization schedule (90 clockwise or counterclockwise, and 180).
This device consists of a pneumatic controlled gripper that, by turning on its own axis,
places bags according to palletization schedule.

Pusher area belt:


Bag rows form on this conveyor. This conveyor consists of a steel structure placed
inside the palletizer frame, this motion is transmitted by a belt to minimize noise.

15
Loading area motorized roller platform:
Motorization by tangential chain. Provided with control device for pallet onto the
conveyor.

Belt upper pusher:


For transfer of rows onto moving platform.
This unit consists of a frame on which pushers sliding guides are placed, the whole is
positioned on pusher area belt conveyor.

Layer-pressing upper guides:


Electromechanically operated, for layer compacting after depositing.
Stop position of side panels is controlled by PLC and can be programmed by operator.
Programmed stop positions are coupled to palletization schedules.

Rear side panel:


Mechanically operated, for layer compacting after depositing.
Stop position of side panel is controlled by PLC and can be programmed by operator.
Programmed stop positions are coupled to palletization schedules.

Central-opening plate moving platform:


For formation and deposit of full bag layer on pallet.

Layer pressing cycle:


It occurs after closing of sliding table through the action of lifting forks on pallet being
completed.
The inverter doses the pressing force according to the layer deposited.
Pressing of last layer is also possible.

16
Pallet lifting with inverter-controlled self-braking three-phase motorization:
Pallet lifting device consists of:
- Two motorizations placed in the upper part of machine
structure.
- A connection shaft for side catenaries
- Two 3-inch catenaries to support the lifting forks
- Two balancing counterweights placed inside the uprights
Main features of adopted drive are as follows:
- Low power of motors, being balanced by two adequate
counterweights
- Regulability, through operator panel, of up/down speed and
pressing force

Sliding guides of lifting forks are made from wear-proof drawn steel. Sliding occurs on
four tight bearings.

Automatic stop of palletizer at end of cycle:


When loaded pallet outfeed conveyor is complete.

Access safety device:


Palletization bay with photoelectric barriers.

Automation carried out in separate cabinet:


Complete with:
general breaker
conversion and power parts
PLC.

Automatic locking device for lifting fork descent:


For increased machine safety, a device has been adopted capable of locking the lifting
forks in any position, in case of emergency.

Arm pallet feeder:


A gear motor is used to lift the pallet.
Two cylinders in the arm provide to release the pallet.

Motorized roller conveyor:


Consisting of a frame on which all rollers are placed, this conveyor also consists of a
spring loaded roller capable of signaling the pallet presence at the end of conveyor,
stopping this after passage.

3.6.1 Hoisting notes

Hoisting must be carried out with continuity (no jerks).


Keep load as low as possible while moving, both for load better stability and higher
visibility.
Check that all parts likely to shift during transport are firmly fixed avoiding hazardous
movement or accidental fall of lift parts.

CAUTION: Danger of machine overturning.


Danger of shock and squashing for people.
Check proper balancing of machine until fully hoisted.
Ensure that no one is inside hazard area.
During hoisting, all area surrounding machine must be considered
hazardous area.
