Palletizers manage oversized woven poly bags.

Press Release Summary:



Palletizers use precision robotics and tooling to handle and stack woven poly bags weighing up to 50 kg. Robotic technology and end effectors ensure that oversized bags maintain their shape as they are lifted and placed on pallets. This provides flexible, maintenance-free means to palletize bags, bundles, cases, and pails. Palletizers include built-in diagnostics and speed capabilities up to 65 cases/min and 24 bags/min.

Columbia/Okura Palletizers Effectively Manage Oversized Woven Poly Bags


Columbia/Okura palletizers use precision robotics and tooling to effectively handle and stack large woven poly bags of weights up to 50 kgs.

Robotic technology and special end effectors ensure that oversized bags maintain their shape as they are carefully lifted and placed on pallets. Traditional palletizing methods push and slide the bags, causing them to roll and become misshapen. This can lead to unstable, low-quality palletized loads.

Through improved handling and load forming, Columbia/Okura robotic palletizers can boost bag production efficiencies by reducing product damage and increasing the number of bags per pallet.

Columbia/Okura robotic technology provides a flexible and nearly maintenance-free means to palletize bags, bundles, cases, pails and more. The company offers a variety of state-of-the-art robotic palletizers that include built-in diagnostics, easy-to-use pattern programming, and speed capabilities up to 65 cases per minute and 24 bags per minute.

Columbia/Okura is jointly owned by Columbia Machine and Japan's Okura Yusoki, two companies with over 100 years of combined material-handling experience. Customer service and parts support is located in the USA.
