Athena Automation Series – Pallet Dispenser & Accumulator

Automated pallet dispensing and accumulating saves time, increases production, and reduces chance of injury from manual pallet handling.

Multiple Conveyor Options

There are two common conveyor types for Athena with multiple different configurations:

  • CDLR or chain conveyor
