Why Robotic Palletizing with MOD-PAL?
- 23 Pre-Engineered Configurations
- Mix & Match Configurator
- Integrated Slip-sheet Tooling
- Compact Footprint
- Easy to Use Controls
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:
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.
The APT MOD-PAL-CASE can handle up to 15 cpm in single picks and 3-4 times that rate with multiple picks!
The APT MOD-PAL-PAIL can handle up to 10 ppm depending upon the product weight and size.
The APT MOD-PAL-BAG can handle rates up to 25 bags per minute. It can be ordered with custom grippers for bags and bundles.
Some examples of bagged products include: Pellets, Powder, Cubes, Granules, Food.
The MOD-PAL Features:
The new CRX, along with other collaborative robots offered by FANUC, will allow a company to become the DIY of palletizing.
APT is and has always been a custom machine builder, just specify exactly how you want it!
