1. Layer palletizing
With layer palletizing, items could be stacked and moved much more shortly than with a choose–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. The vast majority of our clients 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 utilize it to implement a layer palletizing software. For instance, the OmniPack resolution has a ‘magic pack’ choice that automates the method of filling in pallet layers in essentially the most optimum approach. There may be additionally scope to make the most of a customized made gripper.
2. Pallet stacking
Pallet stacking is a comparatively easy process 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 masses that can shortly change into tiring, your staff will change into extra prone to errors and damage. They might deviate from the right stacking methodology or use poor type to raise vital masses.
At greatest, an inefficient stacking methodology will waste house and result in larger logistics prices. At worst, a whole pallet of products, which may weigh a whole bunch of kilos, may topple over and lead to critical damage or dying. 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.
