Robot Palletising FAQs

Robot palletising is when industrial robots are utilised to to place and stack goods onto a pallet for transportation. Different types of robots can be used for palletising. Typically, this method is used for the speedy transportation of heavy, bulky items. Robot palletising differs from other forms of automated palletising as it provides much more controls over the way that a pallet is arranged.
When used for the right application, robot palletising is an extremely cost effective solution. This is largely due to its flexibility and ability to handle mixed-case pallets. Robot palletising is ideal in the following situations: When flexibility and speed in changeover is required When you need to palletise multiple products at the same time When you are palletising multiple shifts per day If you’d like to learn more about the cost savings of robot palletising for your business, get in touch with our team today.
When we discuss robot palletising, you might have an image in your head of robot arms placing large boxes or bulky items onto pallets. While it can be used for this application, this is not always the case. In reality, robot palletising is not only for large, heavy items. Nor is it only for placing items onto large wooden pallets. Palletising can be done on any scale, as is appropriate for your business requirements, and items can be placed onto any surface.
Any item or product that can be stably stacked onto a surface can be palletised with a robot palletiser. Some of the most common examples are: Any item or product that can be stably stacked onto a surface can be palletised with a robot. Some of the most common examples are: Closed top RSC cases(taped or glued), Trays or open-top cases, Bags, Pails, and Manufactured parts in dunnage.
Typically speaking, a single arm robot palletiser can manage 1-4 products at the same time. However, with gantry style robots or articulated robots on a rail, this capacity increases to 5-20+ products at a time.
There are a number of different industries in which robot palletising is used to improve efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Some of the most common are: consumer goods manufacturing, durable goods manufacturing, and food processing.
