Gantry Palletisers

Gantry Palletisers that are worth their weight in gold

A Linkx Compact Gantry Palletiser is worth its weight in gold. Small footprint, low cost, high specification, fast payback. It is designed to meet modern production environments where space is a constraint and the need for potential future expansion is a consideration.



Compact, fast, flexible

When selecting a palletiser system, the pallet pattern, product type, product orientation, product speed and system layout, will all be factors needing attention to suit the application.
Our base model Gantry Palletiser is designed to accommodate up to 15 movements per minute. The products may be picked in multiples to achieve the required palletisation speeds but only in accordance with the pallet pattern. The basic gripper will be a clamping, rotating system, and other grippers are available depending on the product type.

High specification, modular, upgradable

The palletiser machine’s modular construction will allow you to start with a compact cell which can be loaded and unloaded with a simple pallet truck. This unit can be added to at a later date, with conveyors, layer pad and pallet dispensers as required and ultimately, automatic stretch wrapping.
Pallet pattern software allows customers to easily configure their own pallet patterns.

High reliability

The palletiser system is UK designed and built for 24/7 operating environments, with full diagnostic system and Ethernet connectivity for remote support as standard.
