Press Release Summary:
Multifunction palletizer enables producers of bagged products to simultaneously palletize output of 3 separate, lower-speed production lines. Robot automatically adjusts itself to handle distinctly different bag styles and sizes. For 3 lines, palletizer accommodates speeds up to 5 bags/min per line for cumulative speed of 15 bags/min. Multifunction end effector can be equipped to handle slip-sheets and pallets.
Original Press Release:
Columbia/Okura Robotic 3-Line, Multi Function Bag Palletizer
With a single Columbia/Okura robotic palletizer, producers of bagged products can simultaneously palletize the output of three separate, lower-speed production lines.
The robot can automatically adjust itself to handle distinctly different bag styles and sizes at the same time. For three lines, the robotic palletizer can accommodate speeds up to 5 bags per minute per line, or a total cumulative speed of 15 bags per minute.
It can eliminate the need for dedicated machines for many multiple production lines, saving both space and money. And its multiple-function end effector can also be equipped to handle slip-sheets and pallets.
Columbia/Okura robotic bag palletizers are powerful yet energy-efficient machines that require minimal floor space and surprisingly little maintenance.
Columbia/Okura 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 70 cases per minute/20 bags per minute.
The company 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.
