Palletising Robots

The automation of machine loading/unloading is a natural application for palletising robots.

Palletising Robots

Palletising processes involve the demanding application of stacking boxes, bags, cases, bottles, and cartons onto pallets and is the last stage in the assembly line before palletised product (freight) is loaded onto transport vehicles for shipping.

Robot palletisers alleviate the need for manual stacking of bags, cartons or drums onto a pallet and so increase end-of-line productivity, safety, pallet stability and reducing costs. Palletising robots are also key to preventing downstream bottlenecks in your operations with consistently high and reliable throughput.

Automated robotic machine loading/unloading is not only fast, efficient and cost-effective, it also greatly reduces WHS and enables your staff to be re-deployed to more hands-on tasks.

Diverseco is able to provide solutions to the three key challenges involved in automating palletising processes, namely: pallet pattern flexibility, tooling flexibility, and cycle time.

Kawasaki palletising robots are specifically designed for high-speed, heavy payload, and long-reach palletising applications, and have a range of flexible software options that enable operators to rapidly generate pallet patterns and monitor the status of the palletising system. The palletising robots that we can integrate into your palletising system have payload capacities that range from 80kg to 700kg, which suit most requirements, and can perform cycles of such as fast as 2,050 cycles per hour with loads of 130 kg.

The high payload capabilities of these robots allow for multiple product picks and complete pallet layer handling, resulting in fewer cycles per completed pallet.

The high vertical reach capability of the Kawasaki palletising robots is ideal for tall pallet creation and multi-lane applications where the robot is required to reach over incoming and outgoing production lines. The extra-long horizontal reach allows for one Kawasaki robot to be used in applications where five or more outgoing pallet lanes are required.

Consequently, Diverseco can provide your company a solution to give your production line the palletising flexibility, work range, reliability and throughput rates required to compete in the marketplace.
