Palletizing and depalletizing

Palletizing and depalletizing have long become common tasks for industrial robots. The use of industrial robots has significant advantages over the use of stationary loading complexes:

The robot-based palletizer takes up less space. The robot can be mounted on any surface – on the floor, on the wall, on the ceiling, while the reach remains the same. One robot is capable of moving and stacking loads weighing up to 700kg. Moreover, he can work without interruption 24 hours a day.

The robot is a more flexible tool. To convert the complex to a new type of product or a new stacking format, it is enough to replace the gripper and change the control program.

Palletizing by a robot has other advantages as well. The variety of grippers and rigs allows you to move almost any cargo: boxes, boxes, bags, kegs, cans and much more. The pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry will be interested in stacking robots equipped with gripping devices for small items: jars, boxes, tubes, etc. carrying from the conveyor to the pallet. Another advantage of using a stacker robot is the ability to program it to work with two conveyors at once, which will several times reduce the time for sorting or packaging products from two lines. The machine vision system will allow the robot to separate objects by color, shape, reject and read bar codes thereby sorting them. The six-axis robot can stack products in accordance with any given pattern, positioning the load at any angle and anywhere in the reach. to lay entire layers of products without prior alignment and grouping. This is achieved through the use of split grippers. The robot picks up individual pieces of products, each time repositioning the gripper, then the product layer is moved in one motion. positioning the load at any angle and anywhere within the reach.

Robotics palletizing is an excellent alternative to manual control placement process:

  • shorter pallet assembly time
  • increase in conveyor capacity
  • maintaining product quality, reducing “battle”
  • reduction of personnel injury
  • compliance with the requirements for the organization of workplaces for safety and sanitary and hygienic standards.
  • reduction of employment in difficult and hazardous areas
  • reduction of labor costs

By installing a palletizing robot at your enterprise, you acquire a multifunctional technological device that, if necessary, can always be reprogrammed for any other task.

Selection of a suitable robot requires the maximum amount of technical data on operating conditions and high professionalism of the integrator company.

When solving palletizing problems as part of a robotic complex, various types of additional equipment are used:

  • Conveyors, conveyors, roller tables
  • Automation systems (programmable controllers, etc.)
  • Human Machine Interface (HMI) Systems
  • Sensor systems
  • Vision systems
