Poco Loco choose SCOTT’s multi-line palletising solution

Scott designed and installed an automated multi-line palletising system at Poco Loco, the leading Belgian producer of tortilla wraps, chips and snacks who are part of the Finnish Paulig Group.

The system was installed in 2022 in a new building in Roeselare and handles the output of several new production lines. The solution covers all processes from conveying and accumulating the packs on buffer tables, to palletising using the latest version of Scott's flagship palletiser PAL 4.0, full pallet wrapping, labelling and conveying to the high bay warehouse.

The customer ultimately opted for the Scott multi-line solution over the single-line solution offered by other suppliers. It is designed to enable further expansion that will accommodate double the current palletising capacity of up to 50 pallets per hour. The first phase covered 4 tortilla packing lines, sending filled cartons and display boxes to the buffer tables and one central PAL 4.0 palletiser. As soon as enough product is buffered to fill a complete pallet, the system summons it, transports it to the palletiser and creates the pallet. The product infeed is at high level (about 3,5 m) to free up the access flow on the floor between production lines. The SCOTT multi-line solution brings considerable benefits from the low cost of ownership, reliability, space utilisation, high performance and the highest standard of hygiene and safety.
