Currie by Brenton’s MasterPal Provides High Speed Palletizing and Depalletizing

Sep 20, 2012
  • MasterPal patented technology handles full layers of product up to 500 lbs.
  • Palletizes or depalletizes up to six full layers a minute of almost any type load
  • Innovative, servo-operated rotary tool outperforms vacuum pick and rollers


Packagers who need to palletize or depalletize trays, large loads, bulk items and bundles have historically made quality or speed compromises due to limitations of vacuum pick and roller technology. That’s no longer necessary with Currie by Brenton’s patented MasterPal technology which palletizes or depalletizes full layers at time, up to 500 lbs., at speeds up to six layers a minute.

MasterPal provides consistent tight layer grids of palletized product through a unique “cradle and place” technology that combines a servo-operated rotary tool and slat system to gently handle full layers of product with each motion. The versatile end-of-arm technology is field proven for multiple palletizing and depalletizing applications and provides superior results for empty or full bulk items, bags, cans, bottles or irregular shaped packs. It reliably handles open or sealed cases, trays, display packs, bundles, and bulk product.

“MasterPal’s slatted apron completely supports an entire layer of product from the bottom,” said Jason Bennett, Currie by Brenton Product Line Manager. “This eliminates product handling limitations created by rollers or vacuum pick and place, which leave trays behind or fail to handle certain bulk items. With MasterPal, shape or type of product doesn’t matter; if it can be conveyed, it can be stacked. Even soft or gentle-requirement products are efficiently and consistently handled.”

Currie by Brenton, powered by ProMach, acquired the MasterPal patents in August this year and is now distributing the product throughout North and South America. Currie by Brenton offers a demonstration center for customer testing in its state-of-the-art Alexandria, Minnesota facility.
