1. Layer palletizing
With layer palletizing, items may be stacked and moved way more shortly than with a decide–and–place method. When it comes to programming, there’s not a lot distinction between shifting one field or a number of on the similar time. As soon as a layer has been accomplished, the gripper will transfer the neatly aligned gadgets over to the pallet in a single motion. Nearly all of our prospects use pneumatic grippers designed by our UR+ companions and system integrators.
Whereas the utmost payload and attain of a cobot guidelines out carrying a number of heavy gadgets on the similar time, there are nonetheless methods you employ it to implement a layer palletizing utility. For instance, the OmniPack answer has a ‘magic pack’ possibility that automates the method of filling in pallet layers in essentially the most optimum approach. There’s additionally scope to make the most of a customized made gripper.
2. Pallet stacking
Pallet stacking is a comparatively easy job on paper, however it’s taxing and might simply result in harmful errors. To maximise security and make sure you’re getting as many gadgets onto every pallet as doable, the perfect sample for stacking your pallet is in an ‘overlapping brick’ formation. Nevertheless, when working at velocity and with hundreds that may shortly grow to be tiring, your employees will grow to be extra inclined to errors and harm. They might deviate from the proper stacking technique or use poor type to carry important hundreds.
At greatest, an inefficient stacking technique will waste house and result in larger logistics prices. At worst, a complete pallet of products, which may weigh tons of of kilos, may topple over and end in severe harm or loss of life. Letting your cobot deal with pallet stacking is extra environment friendly, as your cobot received’t deviate from the stacking sample you’ve programmed and create an unstable stack.
