Which products can we palletize and package automatically or with the help of an industrial robot:
\ cardboard packaging / boxes,
\ sacks / bags,
\ bottles / jars / cans / cups,
\ buckets / plastic containers,
\ metal parts,
\ concrete elements,
\ wooden elements,
\ and many others.
Types of packaging and palletizing heads used in palletizers, manipulators and palletizing robots:
\ mechanical heads,
\ vacuum heads,
\ hybrid heads (combination of gripping systems).
Additional options for installation in heads:
\ height / position compensators,
\ separators collection system,
\ layer / product search system,
\ pallet collection system,
\ product proximity detection system,
\ mechanical clamping system for holding / formatting the product,
\ head zone control system allowing for work with different sizes of elements with one head.
Integrated graphic editors enable quick and intuitive defining of packaging, packages, pallets and grippers. They allow faster generation of sections, storage compartments, position systems and stacking schemes. They facilitate the creation of new palletizing schemes based on already used patterns.
Such technological software significantly simplifies and speeds up the configuration
and creation of programs related to palletization
and also de-palletization of products.
The basic advantages of using technological software are:
\ the ability to freely define elements such as products, packaging areas, pallets, etc.,
\ the ability to define the type of grippers,
\ the ability to assign a particular type of gripper to a palletizing program,
\ quick creation of stacking patterns and schemas,
\ quickly adding new products packaging to an already used station.
The elements of the basic packaging and palletizing station are:
\ robot or multi-axis manipulator,
\ head dedicated to work with a specific product,
\ product stacking / palletizing area,
\ pallet dispenser,
\ separators dispenser,
\ safety fence,
\ product inputs conveyors to the station (e.g. transporter),
\ system for ready product / pallet transport outside the station,
\ automation, pneumatics and safety systems.
