Schneider Packaging’s Add-a-Pal is designed as a “plug-in” that turns a new or existing Schneider case packer into an economical case packer/robotic palletizer.

Using the case packer’s PLC controls to operate the palletizer, the newly formed case packer/palletizer system completes case packing and palletizing functions, even in minimal floor space environments. Equipped with a FANUC robot capable of up to 30 picks/min., the Add-a-Pal enables high throughput for single or multiple products.  Custom End-Of-Arm Tooling (EOAT) options include vacuum, mechanical, fork, or a combination of these with or without pallet hooks, and slip-sheet handling to pick product, stack in the required pattern and palletize. Pallet handling options include manual to fully automatic pallet exchange with pallet dispenser.
