Palletizing Robots

Robotic Palletizing

Industrial palletizing robots are automated systems used to stack goods onto pallets for shipment. These can be programmed to handle a wide range of products in a variety of configurations. Because of their strength and versatility, the number of palletizing robot applications are virtually limitless.

Manufacturing companies, from fields as diverse as chemicals, food and health care, are recognizing the advantages of palletizing robots. Cases, drums, bags or trays can all be palletized quickly, accurately and repeatably, and interweaving layers as necessary. Robotic palletizing systems with payloads over 2800 lbs. can stack in whatever format is needed. Uniform ventilation gaps can be guaranteed while controlled acceleration and deceleration mean there’s no damage from dropping or banging cases together.

A robotic palletizing system offers many advantages, with the latest safety technology, cells take up little floor space and can go at the end of a production line. This turns a group of machines into a mini-factory and eliminates long conveyors snaking their way through to the centralized system.

When different case sizes are introduced, or bag formats changed it takes just a change of program to reconfigure the robot. Modern gripper designs mean other pack formats like large bags or trays of beverage cans are handled just as easily as rigid cartons. Some advanced systems can even handle mixed pallets, making them almost as flexible as workers.

If you’re looking for more universal palletizing robots rather than a custom palletizer, consider our FastPACK® universal palletizer. It has the capability to handle even the most complex applications, thanks to its flexible pallet arrangements and configurable inbound conveyance.

Benefits of Robotic Palletizing Solutions

Productivity surges with palletizing automation, and the indirect savings can be dramatic, too. Injuries and injury-related absences are eliminated because employees are no longer lifting, twisting and bending. That means lower injury costs.  Unscheduled stoppages are eliminated as well, improving equipment utilization and increasing output from the line.

These robots can potentially fit right into your existing downstream and upstream equipment to create one seamless, fully automated process on your production floor. They can be scaled up or down to meet your current level of demand, helping your business remain flexible and responsive to market conditions. Another critical advantage these robots offer is their ability to provide safe and accurate handling of practically all types of goods, even exceptionally large and/or bulky ones. This ensures consistent quality, keeps workers safe from accidents involving heavy items and prevents losses that result from damaged products. This equipment can handle just about any type of product, from bins and buckets to totes and trays and many more.
