Schneider Packaging Equipment’s new iP robotic palletizer is for high-speed applications in minimal floor space. Equipped with a FANUC Robotics articulated arm robot, this high-level palletizer is integrated with an automatic pallet lift and product collation system designed to handle products at significant speeds, even in harsh environments.
The integrated lift system detects the height of the top layer of product and automatically indexes the pallet downward as the unit load is built. The auto indexing minimizes the amount of motion required by the robot to perform palletizing while maximizing speed, efficiency, cost and labor savings. The flexibility of the robot and the company’s tooling design can eliminate (or allow for very fast) product changeovers. In many situations this flexibility allows the system to palletize different SKUs, one after the other, taking product from multiple lines into one simple fast small palletizer.
