Robot Palletizers

Why Robotic Palletizing with MOD-PAL?

  • 23 Pre-Engineered Configurations
  • Mix & Match Configurator
  • Integrated Slip-sheet Tooling
  • Compact Footprint
  • Easy to Use Controls
Modular Palletizer

Robotic Palletizers are used for unitizing product onto a pallet while reducing the inefficiencies of workers and the risk of ergonomic injury. Product will placed onto the pallet in uniform layers based on the pallet pattern. Pallet patterns can include column stack, interlocking, spiral and more. The weight and speed of the product as well as the overall height of the product unit load will determine the type of robot used for your application. Robot palletizers can build unit loads directly on the floor for Hand Cart management or directly onto powered conveyors for Fork Truck or AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) management. Typical configurations are designated as X in Y Out, where X represents the number of product infeed conveyors the robot will see, and Y represents the number of Unit Load Build Stations the robot work cell will have.

For more automated and faster palletizers, the robot cell may also include:

  • Pallet Magazine for storing a stack of uniform pallets that the robot will pick and place at the build station.
  • Pallet Dispenser for storing a stack of uniform pallets that will automatically dispense one at a time to the build station.
  • Slip Sheet Magazine for storing a stack of layer/deck/slip sheets that the robot will pick and place as it builds a unit load.
  • Slip Sheet Dispenser for storing a stack of layer/deck/slip sheets that will be presented automatically to the robot to pick and place as it builds a unit load.
  • Pallet Dispenser with Integrated Deck Sheet Dispenser which will automatically dispense one pallet at a time with a deck sheet to the build station.

Our pre-engineered MOD-PAL system will drastically reduce the time it takes to deliver a palletizing system to you as well as the risk that can oftentimes be present with custom engineered equipment. We have 23 pre-engineered solutions ready to discuss with you, but still design the robot tooling and manufacturing sequence to fit your operation.

 

Our engineered gripper also handles both slip sheets and pallet placement.

 

Control and human operator interface are often overlooked when choosing equipment, but this is an area where we excel. Our systems are easy to interact with, easy to troubleshoot, easy to changeover with stored recipes, and easy to maintain and keep running.
