Robotic Palletizing Cells
The Arbot is a pre-engineered robotic palletizing cell that automatically stacks and wraps pallets to exact specifications. It consists of a multi-axis robot, gripper, automatic stretch wrapper, pallet dispenser and conveyance system within a space efficient footprint. Arbot cells range from a one-line in, one-line out configuration, up to a four-line in, four-line out configuration to match production needs.
Grippers are matched to the application and range from simple suction cups and vacuum plates, to fork and bag style tools. Custom tool designs are also available to accommodate virtually any product.
The system can accommodate cases, trays, bundles, bags, etc. Speeds vary by application; however, rates up to 60 pieces per minute are possible. An automatic pallet dispenser supplies pallets as needed and can be reloaded while the system is running to maximize efficiency. Slip sheets and tier sheets can also be placed as needed. After the load is complete, it is transferred to a fully automatic stretch wrapping station, allowing the robot to immediately begin building the next pallet. Wrapped pallets are then discharged to a staging conveyor for pick-up. For operator safety, a fully interlocked guard system is provided that immediately stops the robot in the event that a perimeter door is opened. Robotic palletizing systems offer consistent, predictable production; usually at higher rates than their human counterparts. They improve quality and minimize rework and can work 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Additionally, they can handle heavy/ difficult products and prevent injuries.
