Palletizing with a cobot

Palletizing (stacking boxes on pallets) can be done more efficiently with collaborative robots. Boxes are picked up with electric vacuum grippers and placed on pallets. New technologies eliminate the need for an external air supply and hoses, which facilitates integration, reduces costs, and reduces noise and nuisance.


Palletizing with a collaborative robot

Palletizing is the placing of products or boxes on a pallet that is being prepared for shipping or storage. This task can be perfectly automated using a cobot. The cobot can stack the products in a desired pattern, maximizing the amount of cargo and reducing the chance of toppling over. Today, many pallets are still stacked manually. A simple, tedious task, which can lead to physical complaints if there is a lot of weight. A cobot, provided the goods are delivered constantly, can keep stacking endlessly. When production continues 24 hours a day, robots can reduce the cycle time of a stacked pallet.
