MESH has designed and built robotic, gantry, and traditional product stackers. Picking the correct system is dependent on the rate, size of the product, the rigidity of the product, and requirements of the pallet and pallet exchange. MESH has achieved +- 1mm stacking accuracy using a robot or gantry.

It all starts with the material feed system. Whether this is a roller conveyor, drag chain, or other feed system controlling the speed and position of the material is critical.

If a robot or gantry is chosen the end-of-arm tool design factors greatly into the performance and long-term reliability of the system.

Other features such as automatic rejects, bypasses, pallet dispensers, slip sheet dispensers, pallet exchange requirements all must be considered with due diligence when considering the entire system design.

MESH is your one-source supplier of the right system. Please look into our pre-engineered robotic systems, pallet dispenser, end of arm tools and slip sheet dispenser products.

Robotic Pick and Place/Stacking FAQ

What are the key reasons companies choose automated stacking How do I choose between a gantry or a robot for my stacking needs?
Labor issues are in the forefront of most automation decisions. Most manual handling jobs are high speed, result in repetitive motion injuries and are undesirable (hard to find workers). Human interaction with forklifts are accidents waiting to happen. Robots and other automation along the packaging line eliminate these labor issues forever.
There are many factors to consider when choosing the type of automation to use as the primary. Robots and Gantries have a lot of overlap, but each has their advantages with certain product sizes and configurations. The list of things to consider are too long to put in this answer, but the good news is MESH offers both and will provide you with an unbiased recommendation.
