The models available from these robotic companies have several advantages when it comes to robotic palletizing: Increased speed, Accuracy, Flexibility, Safer work environment, Flexibility in packing, packaging, and distribution.
The use of automation in the palletizing process continues to grow as palletizing robot companies begin to realize these advantages, as well as the possible advancements that go along with palletizing robotics. Robots have driven the palletizing market by working faster and more consistently than manual applications. Palletizing robots also withstand harsh environments and greatly reduce the risk of injury to workers.
There are two types of robots used for palletizing – articulated and gantry. Gantry robots are suspended from an overhead rack. Robots like the FANUC M-710iC can be used as a gantry palletizing robot.
Palletizing robots generally appeal to end users with mid-range needs. Low-end users often assume a robotic system is beyond their budget, but with reduced costs of robots and software, as well as plug-and-play usability, automating palletized operations have become more efficient.
