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.
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.
