Abstract (en)

[origin: US6264421B1] The invention relates to a method for palletizing packing drums (7) on a load platform (P), especially barrels, kegs or the like in substantially cylindrical or barrel-shaped receptacles, and/or for depalletizing the packing drums. The inventive method provides as high turnover speed as possible for a layer of, for instance, six or eight packing drums (7*) without causing problems related to the inertia of masses and oscillating phenomena limiting turnover speed. This is achieved by vertically lifting each respective layer (7*) of packing drums in relation to a direct or indirect carrier contact surface (A1, A2) to the packing drum layer during transfer to or from a palet (P). The packing drum layer and the pallet are placed separately from each other (palletizing) or together (depalletizing) in a continuously identical receiving and lift movement position (G) by displacing their contact surface on a plane on which the lift movement is vertically performed. A first embodiment of the device for implementing the method has, inter alia, a stationary palletization base frame (1) with a device (2) for receiving, stopping, lifting or lowering the layer of packing drums (7*), in addition to a dual movable carriage (3, 3.1, 3.2) which can run through the palletization base frame (1) in two alternative positions on rails (8), which are perpendicular to three conveyor systems (4, 5, 6).
