Press Release Summary:
Using mechanical gripper, Robotic Palletizers de-stack pallet load of cases that are tab-locked open, placing them on conveyor. Indexing hoist mechanism presents case layers at consistent pick height, allowing robot to perform at highest possible speeds in working zone. Palletizers can be used when cases of empty plastic or glass containers are supplied to alternate location for filling with product.
Original Press Release:
Columbia/Okura Depalletize Tab-Lock Reshipper Cases
Robotic palletizers from Columbia/Okura can be tooled to depalletize tab-locked reshipper cases, returning them to production for further processing.
Using a unique mechanical gripper, as opposed to vacuum technology, the robot de-stacks a pallet load of cases that are tab-locked open, placing them onto a conveyor. An indexing hoist mechanism accurately presents the case layers at a consistent pick height, allowing the robot to perform at its highest possible speeds in its optimum working zone. A typical application for this technology is when cases of empty plastic or glass containers are supplied to an alternate location for filling with product.
Robotic depalletizers are energy-efficient and feature fewer moving parts for reduced overall machine maintenance, even when operating at higher speeds.
Columbia/Okura offers a variety of easy-to-operate robotic palletizing solutions that include built-in diagnostics and user-friendly pattern programming. All systems are UL 1740 Certified, completely factory tested and supported with U.S.-based, 24 hour parts and service support.
