Robotic Palletizer includes auto indexing feature.
February 25, 2011 -
Based on FANUC articulated arm robot, iP Robotic Palletizer integrates automatic pallet lift and product collation system designed to continuously handle products at high-speeds in harsh environments. For precise product placement, lift system detects height of top layer of product and automatically indexes pallet downward as unit load is built, minimizing motion required by robot to perform palletizing. Machine is available as dual station 1-in-2-out system or single-station 1-in-1-out system.

Schneider Packaging Debuts IP High Speed Robotic Palletizer
Combining fast FANUC robots with short movements
BREWERTON, NY - Schneider Packaging Equipment, specializing in end-of-line solutions for case packing and palletizing needs, introduces the iP robotic palletizer for high speed palletizing applications in minimal floor space. Equipped with a FANUC Robotics articulated arm robot, this high-level robotic palletizer is integrated with an automatic pallet lift and product collation system designed to handle products at significant speeds, 24/7, even in harsh environments.
The iP robotic palletizer takes advantage of a minimal-movement design resulting in fast, reliable, performance for palletizing a wide variety of cased and bagged products. For precise product placement and highly stable loads, the integrated lift system detects the height of the top layer of product and automatically indexes the pallet downward as the unit load is built. The auto indexing minimizes the amount of motion required by the robot to perform palletizing while maximizing speed, efficiency, cost and labor savings. The high level design takes significantly less floor space than conventional palletizing solutions while the flexibility of the robot and our tooling design can eliminate or have very fast product changeovers. In many situations this flexibility allows the system to palletize different SKUs, one after the other, taking product from multiple lines into one simple fast small palletizer.
The iP robotic palletizer is available as a dual station 1-in-2-out palletizing system or as a single station 1-in-1-out palletizing system which can be fully automated with pallet transport conveyor, pallet dispensing, and slip sheet dispensing for a complete solution. Each system can be fully integrated with palletizing, stretch wrapping, labeling, product and pallet transport conveyor, AGVs, pallet dispensing, and slip sheet dispensing for a complete fully automatic solution.
