Well equipped for the future: The new PW 800 with inline option

The engineers of Baust material flow systems responded to the wishes of their customers and improved the proven pallet changer PW 800 even more.

The pallet changer now has a tilting angle that can be set to any tilting angle up to 135° thereby also enabling reliable re-palletising of big bags and bagged goods. 

Other requirements were a purely electric main drive, precise centring in all directions and at best the possibility for integration in a conveyor line at a later stage with little effort.

The result exceeded all expectations

Design manager Sven Lorry is satisfied with the results achieved for the new PW 800: “Thanks to the electric drive and installed pneumatics, we are able to reduce the noise emissions to a minimum, and at the same time we avoid having critical service fluids in the system such as hydraulic oil. In addition, all movements can be executed quickly and carefully at the same time through frequency control.”

Baust is expanding its product portfolio of pallet changers without hydraulic drives even further with the PW 800. The response by Baust customers to this development is positive across the board. Customers appreciate the advantages of the electronic drive in practice. 

Tilting up with air: Use in practice

Last year, not one but two Baust customers decided to take the option for the subsequent inline design. That way, the automated stand-alone machine can become a fully automated pallet changer system with conveyor technology in the near future with just a few changes. The feeding height is then at the future conveying level and allows loading and unloading with a forklift or electrical pallet truck.

Successful project realisation for large pharmaceutical company in Turkey

In June 2017, Baust was able to successfully realise another international project in Turkey. 

Part of the scope of supply was the pallet exchanger PW 6000 and a cover sheet dispenser. Both components work fully automatically and were integrated in the conveyor system of the intralogistics provider and general contractor Klinkhammer Förderanlagen GmbH from Nuremberg. The key components of the pallet changer experts, Baust, now present a central component inside the overall system, which comprises 200 m of conveying line and other components such as vertical conveyors and lifting stations.

Special features of the project

To prevent contraflow and achieve the highest-possible changing performance of up to 60 pallets per hour, the material flow was designed in one direction through the pallet changer. The process can be run with a variable feed to change from wooden to hygienic pallets and vice versa. A cover sheet can be placed on the wooden pallets automatically to protect the bottom side of the goods. Another challenge during the installation was the low ceiling height of the installation site of the system.

“The diverse spectrum of goods ranging from cartons to drums, and right up to big bags and sacks, which are completely changed on the PW 6000, is what distinguishes this project in particular,” says the manager of the electrical department, Jan Klewin. 

The project was completed with the installation of a remote maintenance line, which enables optimal support from Baust in the shortest possible reaction time.

In 2016, we supplied more pallet changers and other Baust machines than ever before. Demand increased all over the world – there are good reasons why.

2016 a particularly good year for material flow "made in Langenfeld"

Demand for Baust material-handling and pallet-change solutions continues to be tremendously high. So a particularly high number of pallet changers left our production last year.

Baust opens new conference and training centre

Since August 2016 Baust has been receiving visitors at its new company building. The extension is also being used as a conference and training centre.

It looks good – and offers spacious facilities: the new conference and training centre on the Baust company grounds.

Modern extension on company grounds

TIME TO CHANGE – this slogan has been the official trade fair motto of Baust Materialflusssysteme since 2016. But TIME TO CHANGE has also had an immediate application to the Baust company grounds in Langenfeld. Here the pallet changing experts opened a new company building in August – an extension with a radically different look. Both the facade and the outdoor facilities, as well as the entrance where visitors and suppliers are received, have been designed and executed in a modern minimalist style.

Just visit us – at Kurfürstenweg 24 in Langenfeld (Rhineland)

The new company building is also being used as a conference and training centre. ‘The necessary facilities have already been set up,’ said Managing Director Franz Baust. ‘With their clear purist design, they complete the modern concept of our new company building in the best possible way.’

But words are no substitute for the reality. Why not visit us and take a look for yourself? We are looking forward to welcoming you!

 

Trade fairs 2016: Baust pallet changers still in great demand

Baust made a flying start at two big trade fairs in 2016 - the LogiMAT and the CeMAT. At both events, the new stand approach was a complete success.

Visitors’ response significantly beyond expectations

Baust made a flying start in 2016, with two leading trade fairs in the spring of this year. And they were quite something! At both the LogiMAT in Stuttgart and the CeMAT in Hanover, the positive response of visitors was significantly beyond expectations. ‘We made a lot of exciting contacts and acquired some new customers – both nationally and internationally,’ declared a satisfied Managing Director Franz Baust. ‘And it was all on a very much wider scale than we had dared to hope previously.’

There was powerful demand both for the stand-alone pallet changers, like the PW 600, and for Baust’s fully automated solutions. Here the high-performance exchanger PW 6000 and the leakproof pallet tilter PW 800 Inline met with particularly great interest on the part of the trade public.

In the limelight: the PW 1000

Among Baust pallet changers, this is the export hit – which is why it enjoyed particular prominence at this year’s trade fair appearances. Both at LogiMAT and CeMAT 2016, the PW 1000 was among the systems exhibited. Using sample pallets as an illustration, Baust’s experts showed visitors how easy it is to change pallets with the help of the PW 1000. Videos complemented the presentation, showing the whole pallet changing procedure. It was a resounding success – Baust’s bestseller went down well with even more satisfied customers. The new stand approach, with trade fair clip, attractive wall graphics and exhibits, was thus a complete success.

LogiMAT and CeMAT: a tale of two trade fairs

While the company’s CeMAT stand had many visitors from all over the world, at the LogiMAT the emphasis was on visitors from German-speaking countries. This is hardly surprising. At this year’s CeMAT, the overall number of visitors and exhibitors had dropped; but significantly greater numbers of international visitors made their way to the trade fair grounds in Hanover. By contrast, the Stuttgart LogiMAT succeeded for the first time ever in attracting over 40,000 visitors. Baust’s conclusion from both trade fairs is an altogether positive one: pallet changing systems are more in demand than ever – for all industries right across the board.

Pallet changing with Baust: again in 2017 it will be ‘TIME TO CHANGE‘

Following our successful trade fair appearances in 2016, we are already looking forward to the new business year. Once again in 2017 Baust will be putting itself in the limelight with exciting projects, new developments and trade fair presentations.

New Baust developments at CeMAT 2016

At CeMAT 2016 in Hanover (31 May – 3 June) Baust presents its wide range of pallet changers. In the limelight: the brand-new exchanger PW 800 E.

Trade-fair appearance for new pallet changers „Made in Germany“

Just back from LogiMAT in Stuttgart, Baust is on the way to Northern Germany. From 31 May to 3 June 2016 CeMAT, the world’s leading trade fair for intra logistics, takes place in Hanover. Here, professional visitors from all over the world can examine the extensive portfolio of Germany’s pallet changer expert. Electric or pneumatic drives; stand-alone or inline machines; clamping, tilting, inverting or pushing method – in hall 27 (stand k49) you will be able to see the complete range of Baust pallet changers.

This year at CeMAT: Baust’s new E-series

“The LogiMAT in Stuttgart already was a great success”, managing director Franz Baust raises high expectations to CeMAT 2016. “Especially our new, pure electrical pallet changer PW 800 E was of great interest.” Chances are good that this will repeat at the leading trade fair in Hanover. The PW 800 E uses the tilting method and makes pallet changing particularly easy and efficient. And because of its electric drive it’s also completely free from leakages.

Exhibit in Hanover: The Baust bestseller PW 1000

In addition to the new E-series Baust will present one of its proven bestsellers: The PW 1000 is the company’s exhibit at CeMAT 2016. “This pallet changer is in strong demand for good reason”, Baust sales expert Philipp Salingré explains. “It’s using the extremely precise and gentle pushing method. And it’s very cost-effective as well.” Furthermore, the basic pallet changer provides easy installation because of its plug-and-play design.

PW 800 E - No one tilts easier

Pallet changing via tilting method can be that efficient and quiet: The Baust pallet changer PW 800 E uses an electric drive instead of a hydraulic motor.

New Baust pallet changer using the tilting method

The “E” in PW 800 E means a lot of things. Just a few examples: Energy-efficient, Economic, Environmental and Easy to use. We are sure: While working with the brand-new Baust pallet changer you'll come up with further useful features starting with "E".

Ideal pallet changer for tilting stable loads

Like its close relative PW 800 the PW 800 E is using the tilting method. But there are two significant differences: The PW 800 E has no side walls and is driven by an electric drive instead of a hydraulic motor. The new Baust model offers decisive advantages for the repalletizing of tilting-stable loads. A major discount store chain made an enquiry for a simple and efficient pallet changer using the tilting method. The Baust engineers complied with this enquiry by developing the PW 800 E.

Low-maintenance and quiet electric motor

By using Electronics instead of hydraulics the PW 800 E creates a quiet working environment. Further benefits of the electric motor: It’s Energy-efficient, low-maintenance and free from leakage. Like the PW 800 the new E-version provides ground level, ergonomic operation and is reliable even with poor quality pallets. Due to its smaller tilt angle the PW 800 E doesn’t need a pallet clamp.

Extremely flexible: Pallet tilting without side walls

In contrast to the PW 800 the PW 800 E has no side walls. This way the pallet changer can easily be loaded from 3 sides – ideal for pallet changing in narrow logistic warehouses. The PW 800 E offers 2 ways of pallet changing. First, via hand: This way the changing position, i.e. the angle of the back tilting loading table, is freely selectable. Second, via pallet truck from the front or from the side. These features make the PW 800 E the optimal choice for Easy and Efficient pallet changing.

PW 1000 - The Baust bestseller

The PW 1000 is the basic pushing method pallet changer. The cost-efficient Baust entry-level model has become a bestseller.

Basic pushing method pallet changer in great demand

For the repalletizing of sensitive goods a pushing method pallet changer is the prime choice. With this technique the goods are neither clamped nor inverted or tilted. On the other hand, the pushing method is the most complex and therefore most cost-intensive type of repalletizing. For all branches and companies that don’t want to invest plenty of money in a high-performing pallet changer, Baust has developed the PW 1000. This pallet exchanger is not only the entry-level model but also another model of success in the pushing method. “The PW 1000 has become a bestseller”, managing director Franz Baust says. “For good reason: It is cost-efficient and offers the advantages of the pushing method.”

Gentle and fast: Pallet changing with the pushing method

With the pushing method the source pallet is a few inches higher than the target pallet. Two side walls secure goods and the back wall pushes load gently from one pallet to the other. In this way sensitive goods are repalletized in a gentle and safe movement. The PW 1000 is the basic pushing method pallet changer and works as a stand-alone unit. Baust provides the machine as a plug-and-play solution that can easily be set up by the customer. Operating the PW 1000 is also very simple: The pallet exchanger is loaded and unloaded via electric or hand-driven pallet trucks.

The advantages of the basic pallet changer PW 1000

The focus on the essential is the PW 1000’s recipe for success. Franz Baust: “Especially branches that work with sensitive goods without the need of many pallet changes per hour, benefit from our basic pushing method pallet changer.” Primarily these branches are the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry and increasingly the logistics sector. Here pallets often have to be changed before the goods are transported into non-European countries. That’s because in those countries other regulations apply or there is no adequate replacement for the standard Euro pallets. In this case the logistic company could change the goods onto the requested pallets. With the Baust pallet changer PW 1000 repalletizing is fast and easy.

Innovative, space saving solution for Baust pallet changers

The PW 5000 and the PW 6000 are the most powerful Baust pallet changers. With up to 60 changes per hour they still have all advantages the gentle pushing method has to offer.

To save space and to react even more flexible to the customers’ needs Baust developed the roller shutters: These shutters are integrated in the moving frame and have many advantages.

Improved performance for the Baust pallet changers

With the new door system the PW 6000 can achieve up to 70 changes per hour. This is made possible by an efficient electrical drive and an optimized chain guide. In addition, the roller shutter allows you to slide over the pallets as close as possible.

The advantages of the PW 5000/6000 with roller shutters

Many changes per hour, suitable even for highly sensitive goods: These are the particular strengths of Baust’s premium pallet changers. Equipped with roller shutters the pallet changers PW 5000 and PW 6000 offer additional benefits:

  • space saving
  • variable height setting
  • low maintenance
  • low noise
