Any company that handles a product, especially large and heavy packages such as bags or boxes, to place it on a pallet can choose to automate the palletizing system.
There are several alternatives in the type of equipment that our Clients can consider. Because automation has come a long way in recent years, current options for a palletizing automation system include anthropomorphic robots and cartesian systems. In this sense, we list the advantages of the automation of the palletizing system:
Improve working conditions and employee safety
The palletizer is programmed to repeat continuous movements and support and handle very heavy loads, reducing working hours in extreme conditions and avoiding distractions, injuries, fatigue and the effects of repetitive and tedious movements on operators. In addition, the system detects if someone has entered the workspace and stops automatically.
Increases production flexibility
The flexibility of the user interface allows to modify, add and adjust the palletizing pattern as needed, being able to manage multiple production lines.
Maximize production speed
The repetition of the movement at a constant speed and without error makes it possible to assemble a perfect pallet, increasing productivity. Robotic palletizers usually reach a lower speed than Cartesian systems.
Improves the quality of finished products on pallets
Repetition and precision enable the palletizer to achieve a high-quality finish for each product, eliminating the fatigue and distraction issues that often prevent it from being achieved.
Reduce work space
Robots can be programmed to work in confined spaces, saving valuable space in production areas.
Reduces operating costs
The systems can operate day and night and do not require lighting or controlled room temperature, reducing energy costs. Furthermore, only one person supervision is necessary for several machines operating at the same time.
