Robots provide the best option when it comes to keeping pace with palletizing
Today, more than ever, packaging
is constantly changing - affecting the way products are handled and palletized. Marketing has a direct impact on palletizing
. In order to generate more sales, products are continually being redefined, and their shapes, contents, color, altered. Pallets themselves are becoming more customized. Retailers sometimes require pallets to be arranged in specific formations. Our image-conscious culture responds well to this approach, but it can be difficult for factories.
has been carried out by fixed automation
systems for many years, but robots are becoming more popular because they offer more flexibility. Fast, efficient and easy to maintain, robots can also handle change. Unlike fixed automation
, robots can be easily reprogrammed, adapting to different products. EOAT
can be easily changed to accommodate other criteria. Armed with vision systems, robots can select products that are in a jumble, and make sure that products are positioned correctly.
Robots are more straightforward and space-efficient than previous palletizing
systems. Many fixed tooling systems take up a great deal of room. They can prove more costly and difficult to maintain and repair. Robots, on the other hand, occupy a smaller space and are easily maintained.
