MACPAL

The MACPal is designed for robotic palletizing of cases, totes or bags.    With the MACPal you get the flexibility of a robot which is ideally suited to handle a wide variety of case, totes or bag sizes.    Additionally, the robot can truly perform a pushbutton changeover, can palletize cases to the full height of a trailer and is rugged with a service life of greater than 15 years.

MESH has designed the MACPal into two main configurations 1 in 2 out and 2 in 2 out with one centrally located robot from one of three well known brands (ABB, Fanuc or Yaskawa).

MESH has designed many optional process modules (pallet dispenser, slipsheet dispenser, labeler and others) that are perfect compliments to the MACPal and can be seamlessly integrated.

The pre-engineered features and options make for a great value with quick deliveries, while also allowing for easy size and layout customization.
