Robot Palletizing Systems are next-generation palletizers that use a robotic arm to orient, pick, place, and arrange products into a single stack of load.
You can employ these robotic arms to multitask in your warehouse, making your work easier. Many people prefer them as they have lower capital costs and are versatile. However, they lack speed, and their robotic ability limits their potential. Thus, they cannot fully replace conventional palletizers.
Advantages Robotic Palletizer
Automatic robot palletizing systems eliminate manual labor by lifting heavy products effectively. They increase productivity since they are not prone to exhaustion. With proper maintenance, they can operate 24/7, which increases productivity.
Better product handling
Since they are automated, they are programmed to pick and arrange the products without causing damage. In addition, they are error-free since they don’t have to make decisions.
Improved Workplace Safety
Automatic robot palletizing systems eliminate hazards and threats like permanent damage to workers’ health. Manual palletizing includes hazards like slipping, falling, tripping, and crushing.
Reduced Operating Costs
The cost-benefit of robotic palletizing is that they replace workers, thus saving on cost. Moreover, they increase output and have low product wastage.
However, the robotic palletizing systems are slower than human, they are expensive to install, they need constant power, they are high maintenance and lead to human losses of jobs which is not good for the economy.
There are different types of automatic robot palletizing systems, including; single robotic palletizers, robotic depalletizers, layer forming palletizers, gantry palletizer, SCARA palletizer, mixed configuration, and cartesian palletizers.
