Dual arm robotic palletizer/depalletizer

FKI Logistex offers its new high-speed robotic palletizing solution, which uses jointed-arm robots capable of palletizing at rates of more than 100 cases per minute.

The patent-pending robotic solution was shown
in an integrated conveyor loop at the company's exhibit at Pack Expo Las Vegas. Motoman EPL-80 robotic
arms with FKI Logistex-manufactured end-of-arm tooling concurrently
palletize and depalletize customer product to a single load location.
The loop also features FKI Logistex Accuzone® 24-volt powered roller
conveyor, which offers zero-pressure, zero-contact product accumulation. Robotic palletizer/depalletizer enables customers to achieve higher
palletizing rates with a reduced footprint and increased layout
configurations compared to common palletizing systems. The robots offer
gentle handling to minimize product damage, and four-way orientation of
cases gives customers full control of package label positioning.
End-users can easily display the same graphics on all four sides of the
pallet, or orient barcodes to streamline scanning operations.
