 Project objective

D-PAL is an innovative depalletiser based on grip technology used for the stacks of signatures handling and feeding the hardcover bookbinding machine in the printing, bookbinding and graphics atrs industry. D-PAL will increase the competiveness of the printing industry by improving the workflows and by saving approx. 3.6% of the printing cost directly related to labour cost for depalletising. D-PAL reduces problems related to the Health and Safety of the workers, is easy to operate and avoids the quality defects due to human error factor due to repetitive tasks. D-PAL is able to depalletise at a speed of 3600-7000 books per hour with high precision, flexibility and versatility. D-PAL is adapted to current methods of automated palletising with paper separators between the layers and is 20% less expensive than competitive solutions. D-PAL has been developed by LARGOIKO S.L.L, a Spanish Mechatronics Engineering enterprise that designs and carries out the automatization of industrial processes, special machines or under demand since 1999. European Union will be also impacted by D-PAL. D-PAL will be 100% manufactured in Europe (Spain) and it will attract foreign capital from USA. D-PAL will have impact in our company, LARGOIKO. We have invested more than €0.4M and we will invest €1.55M more in this project to put into the market D-PAL by January 2019. According to our forecast, we will have revenues of €9,100,000 by year 2023 from sales of our D-PAL depalletiser. The ROI of the project will be 2.60. During Phase 1 execution, we will develop a feasibility study including a business plan to assess the technological feasibility and economic viability. The general aim of D-PAL project is put into the market 8 units of our D-PAL by 2019.
