Flat Sheet Palletizing FAQ


When do you recommend a Gantry over a robot for flat sheet handling?

Gantries can handle large format sheets better than robots and can sometimes be more cost-effective when payloads and size start to max out the standard robot offerings. Additionally, if the pick location is far from the place location, a gantry may be a better option.

When is a robot the right automation tool for flat sheets?

Robots have the best value when six axes of motion are needed. This often comes into play in most machine tending operations or when an angular motion is needed to separate sheets during destacking.
