Case Palletizing FAQ

How do robotic case packers work?

Robotic case packers fulfill the entire packing process. They queue products for packing and then feed containers for packaging into position. The robot, equipped with an end of arm tool (EOAT), picks products from a conveyor and places them gently into the required package. Labels, insert cards, and special promotional items are easily integrated into the system if needed.

How do robotic case palletizers work?

Robotic case palletizers transfer packed cases or containers from conveyors onto pallets quickly, placing them accurately layer by layer, depending on the pallet patterns required. These patterns can be programmed into the robotic palletizer and changed at any time. Pallet entry into the robotic case palletizer can be handled in many ways, including the robot. In addition to handling pallets, these robots can also handle slip sheets and tier sheets using a custom-designed EOAT for automatic pallet handling.

What advantages do robotic palletizers have over conventional palletizers?

Unlike conventional palletizers, robotic palletizers can process multiple SKUs and layer configurations at any given time. Conventional palletizers can be rough on the product. Robotic palletizers handle product more gently than a human.

What advantages do robotic case packers have over conventional case packers?

Robotic case packers by their nature are flexible and allow a wide variety of products to be packed with little to no changeovers. Their compact and highly developed design allows for a small footprint for their comparable operation. Case openers can be integrated easily with the robotic case packer (MACPac) for a compact footprint. Robots are ideal for handling sensitive products.
