Full Layer Bulk Palletizing System for Glass Bottles

Flexible and reliable palletizing solutions for containers, cases, bundles & trays.

The new Kaufman K5 Group of palletizers is designed specifically for full layer and bulk palletizing needs. This series features a tier formation area that organizes products before palletizing. This process provides a unique combination of control and product flexibility.

  • Containers: Plastic or glass bottles, the K5 Group excels. Bottles are laned into position then, utilizing our K5 tool, large quantities of containers can be palletized in one full movement.
  • Cases: The K5 Group has a dedicated tier formation area that arranges products in the proper orientation to build the load for maximum stability.
  • Trays & Bundles: Products are palletized onto display-ready pallets. The K5 tier formation area can robotically orient products with the correct side out, which is important in the retail market. The K5 tool picks up an entire tier of products or a tier of multiple bundle-packaged products to palletize layers rather than placing individual cases or bundles.

    Our Robot Line Integration Expertise

    Over 75 Years in Business

    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 that 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.

    Combining 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, starts up, 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.
