ARBOT™ Robotic Palletizing Cells
The Arbot is a pre-engineered robotic palletizing cell that automatically stacks and wraps pallets to exact specifications. It consists of a multi axis robot, gripper, automatic stretch wrapper, pallet dispenser and conveyance system in a space efficient footprint.
Arbot cells range from a one-line in, one-line out configuration, up to a four-line in, four-line out configuration to match production requirements.
Grippers are matched to the application and range from simple suction cups and vacuum plates, to fork and bag style tools. Custom tool designs are also available to accommodate virtually any product.
The system can accommodate cases, trays, bundles, bags, etc. with weights up to 1,200 pounds. Speeds vary by application; however, rates up to 60 pieces per minute are possible.
An automatic pallet dispenses supplies pallets as needed and can be reloaded while to system is running to maximize efficiency. Slip sheets and tier sheets can also be placed as needed.
After the load is complete, it is transferred to a fully automatic stretch wrapping station, allowing the robot to immediately begin building the next pallet. Wrapped pallets are then discharged to a staging conveyor for pick-up.
