Palletizing is an important end-of-line application for many manufacturing companies. Several companies have switched from manual palletizing to automated palletizing to further improve the functionality of their system. By switching to a robotic palletizer, like the FANUC R-2000iA/125L, companies are able to speed up their palletizing operations and get products out to customers more efficiently.
The video above shows the FANUC R-2000iA/125L performing the palletizing operation. This R2000iA/125L has a custom mechanical clamp gripper that closes around the cardboard product with enough force to pick it up, but also gently enough to not damage the product. In the video, the R 2000iA/125L is working at a slower speed than it would in a factory, to demonstrate the entire palletizing process. At top speed, the robot can perform several times faster than any manual system.
Another advantage of choosing a palletizing robot like the FANUC R-2000iA/125L is the accuracy it will bring to your operation. A robot system can palletize products more precisely, allowing you to fit more products on one pallet for transportation. They also lower the possibility of product damage by reducing the ability of shifting during transport.
