The Mini Palletisers or MLP™ Series are designed and manufactured by Australis Engineering. A Mini Palletiser is an excellent alternative to manual palletising or robotic palletising. They benefit from having a very small foot-print, easy-to-use touch screen HMI, pre-programmed pallet recipes and the ability to palletise cartons, bags and other products with fully customisable gripper heads. The MLP™ series can be fully customised to meet your product type, floor space, height limitations and budget.
The Mini Palletisers are available in four models, meaning there will be an MLP™ that will suit most lower-volume palletising requirements.
The MLP-10 is a gantry palletiser and the MLP-12 is a cantilever arm palletiser. Both variants are capable of palletising up to 35kg and up to 45 cartons per minute (dependent on product size, weight and desired throughput) – however, the ideal weight range is 10kg to 20kg and slightly slower speeds (more weight or speed and a robotic palletiser is advantageous). Both models can also be manufactured with multiple pallet positions which is especially useful for lower throughput production areas that have a high diversity of product types that need to be palletised independently.
The MLP series can be programmed with standard pallet recipes. Our automation engineers will programme pre-set box and pallet patterns suitable for your products. Once installed, your operators simply use the HMI screen like an iPad to enter the box or bag type and pallet pattern and you are off and running! If your product dimensions or pallet patterns change, we can easily add more ‘recipes’ to your palletiser to help future proof your investment.
Benefits of the MLP series :
The Mini Linear Palletisers can be easily customised with the following options:
Since we first designed the MLP series of palletisers in the early 2000’s, the cost of robotic palletiser systems has become much more attainable for most businesses. This has reduced the cost advantage that the MLP series once held compared to a robotic palletiser. But that doesn’t mean that the MLP palletisers are redundant! An MLP palletiser is still a great option under the following circumstances:
If your operation requires a faster throughput, heavier load or you simply have a preference for a robotic palletiser, our simPAL® modular robotic palletiser could be the solution.

Increase Productivity and Reduce Input costs while achieving a demonstrated Return on Investment
Do you need reduce input costs, increase productivity and demonstrate to management a quick and clear return on investment of your Board or Senior Management? The MLP-12 mini palletiser is the solution.
The following information was provided by one of our Clients who was so impressed that they have now purchase 3x MLP-12’s plus an MLP-10:
By installing an MLP-12 system with integrated stretch wrapper and in-feed conveyor, we have reduced the cost per unit of product produced by 5% overall, including reducing labour by 33% and in the process have removed a WHS manual handling problem and reduced our insurance premiums and payroll tax.

Watch the video of our Mini Palletiser (MLP-12) with 3 pallet positions running at the AusPack 2015 tradeshow. The 3-pallet position option allows multiple product types to be palletised from a single production line in circumstances where multiple products may be produced at any given time.
