Providing a simple, economical, and portable robotic end-of-line palletizing solution for fluctuating production demands, Schneider Packaging Equipment’s small footprint robotic palletizer with Fanuc’s M-20ia/35, is a light-payload handling robot with a cable-integrated arm capable of picking and packing, assembling, and loading.
TopTier's Downstacker is a fully automated automatic palletizer with concurrent stretch wrapping, and this must-see video will show you up-close how it works, from case-turning rollers to forming rows, stacking patterns and wrapping pallets with extreme efficiency.
Arctic palletizing robot from KUKA Robotics is designed for frozen food facilities and cold storage warehouses. Special modifications allow it to operate at temperatures down to -30 deg. C. It is available with payload capacities of 120, 180, and 240 kilograms.
PEWO-form SLP2 Compact - monoblock case packer/palletizer with minimum space requirements of 90 sqft, with company-developed robots for flexible case packing and palletizing applications. Fast change-over time by means of 23 menu-controlled servo-axes and pallet change without machine downtime, unit has a full complement of safety features, ready for track & trace integration.
A-B-C Packaging Machine Corp. Central Regional Sales Manager Marc Antonio describes how the company's Model 108 depalletizer offers maximum bottle stability and smooth handling to craft brewers looking to automate their bulk bottle unloading.
Columbia's complete closed-loop palletizer HL7200 features Cat 3 compliant safety systems including dual channel safety interlocks, full height light curtains and upper-level guards. System flexibility allows quick pallet pattern changes and ability to handle different package types including shrink bundles, totes and unwrapped trays.
Designed to handle various configurations, make process adjustments on the fly, and start/stop palletizing operations easily, Motion Controls Robotics, Inc. (MCRI) uses Fanuc’s Servo Adjustable End of Arm Tool (EOAT) with vacuum grippers that can dynamically adjust to a variety of case sizes and pallet patterns.
Cube technology is a primary discussion point at Aetna. The system allows palletizers to put the correct amount of film at the correct place on the load, with a precise amount of containment force. This translates to a better held-together laid, with 40% higher containment force, while reducing film costs by as much as 55%.
The Flexi-Rope option on the Muller Octopus stretch wrapper is a patented new feature that brings ventilation to pallet loads of hot-filled products, for example, that often need air circulation for a period of time after they've been palletized and wrapped.
Intelligrated's mixed-load order fulfillment system sequences products to be built, by robot, on a stretch wrapper. The system cubes out the load to determine what the order will need to look like, and the robot then sequences the order as necessary.
