Espoma’s new robotic palletizer from Automated Production Systems is equipped with customized end-of-arm tooling that uses multiple vacuum zones to pick up either bundles of small U-Pack bags, larger flat bags, slip sheets, or pallets, as necessary. The system simultaneously picks items and places them onto three different pallets. Once a pallet is filled, it is conveyed out of the robotic cell in three lanes that merge into one to feed a downstream stretch wrapper.
