Our bag palletizing systems are built for repetitive heavy lifting at a fast rate.
How it works: Typically a roller conveyor brings the bags to the palletizing cell, where a robot will lift a bag or group of bags onto the pallet. For dusty environments, the robot is fitted with a dust jacket. The end of arm tooling is usually a mechanical gripper with fingers or jaws to gently lift the bag and prevent ripping. Slip or tier sheets are used to steady the product on the pallet and are often applied by the same robot.
Unlike hand palletizing, robots never get tired and are available 24/7 for 365 days a year, year in year out. Advances in robot and vision technology not only provide the end user with increases in speed, but also a major leap in reliability over hard automation which relies on complex mechanical processes. Fewer parts translates to less to go wrong and a shorter time to repair. The “smarter” robots can simply be re-configured to handle changes without costly restructuring, by changing out end of arm tools or applying vision-guided technology and advanced programming that is always product specific.
All systems can be configured for dusty, hot, washdown, humid or cold room environments.
