1. Layer palletizing
With layer palletizing, items could be stacked and moved way more shortly than with a decide–and–place strategy. By way of programming, there may be not a lot distinction between transferring 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 objects 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 objects on the similar time, there are nonetheless methods you utilize it to implement a layer palletizing utility. For instance, the OmniPack resolution has a ‘magic pack’ possibility that automates the method of filling in pallet layers in essentially the most optimum manner. There’s additionally scope to make the most of a customized made gripper.
2. Pallet stacking
Pallet stacking is a comparatively easy activity on paper, however it’s taxing and might simply result in harmful errors. To maximise security and make sure you’re getting as many objects onto every pallet as potential, the perfect sample for stacking your pallet is in an ‘overlapping brick’ formation. Nonetheless, when working at velocity and with masses that may shortly develop into tiring, your employees will develop into extra vulnerable to errors and damage. They might deviate from the proper stacking technique or use poor kind to raise important masses.
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 lead to severe 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.
