The flexible design makes it equally suited for installation into a new facility or as a replacement for an existing system. The PTS can be set up to a handle a wide variety of concrete unit sizes, shapes and weights including slabs, paving stone, brick, standard and architectural block, segmental retaining wall units and curb units. Consistent gentle handling is guaranteed with the complete electro-mechanical design which allows for precise and reliable operation.
The PTS is engineered to accommodate a range of pallet sizes. The PTS can service kilns regardless of their configuration within a plant thanks to a turntable, located on the car, that precisely positions the crawler to load the kilns. This feature makes retrofitting the PTS into a current layout simple and provides the versatility for new plant layouts.
The encoder controlled, cam-driven lift mechanism on the crawler allows for precise product placement on the shelves in the kilns. Additional versatility is provided with an optional indexing finger assembly on the crawler to accommodate tall products that may be part of a producer’s current or future product line.
