Multiple infeeds, build stations and dispenser stations (for slip sheet separators) support up to eight combined stations.

Easily customizable, job editing is available for specific system requirements. Pallet Builder can accommodate a wide variety of grippers and end-of-arm tooling and easily adjust for product variation.
