Flexible robotic palletizing station
Applied Manufacturing Technologies (AMT), North America’s largest independent full-service systems integration provider supporting manufacturers, robot companies, systems integrators, line builders, and users of robotic automation worldwide, today introduced a new product, R-Palletize, a flexible robotic palletizing station.
R-Palletize is a configurable palletizing station which allows low-volume, high-mix manufacturers to use a single robotic cell for palletizing a variety of product patterns. R-Palletize is available in four hardware configurations which include a FANUC America M710iC/50H robot to handle cases up to 40 lb, a Rockwell Automation control system, and optional end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) to suit the application. Designed for rapid installation and easy setup, R-Palletize offers changeover time in as little as five minutes from the user interface.
“With the recent disruptions to manufacturing and supply chains, manufacturers are turning to automation to fill gaps in the workforce,” says President and CEO Michael Jacobs. “AMT has received many requests to provide flexible robotic palletizing cells to manufacturers from low-volume, high-mix producers. We developed R-Palletize to fill this need, which has been increasingly requested by our customers.”
