OnRobot Palletizer takes the market with unparalleled ease of use and speed of deployment in a comprehensive, affordable package
OnRobot Palletizer extends OnRobot’s application approach to collaborative automation by allowing users to choose a palletizing system that meets their specific application needs with its small footprint and ability to handle many types of boxes, packaging, models, pallets and stacking heights. Compatible with collaborative robots and light industrial robots from Doosan, FANUC, OMRON, Techman and Universal Robots brands, the OnRobot Palletizer is available as a complete system out of the box or as individual components to create a mix-and-match -match the solution. The OnRobot Palletizer includes four new hardware and software products:
- OnRobot Palletizing, intuitive palletizing software that guides users through deployment from start to finish via a single smart interface for all components. It is also a real time saver designed to reduce overall project costs. Once the physical hardware is in place and secure, the end user or integrator simply opens OnRobot Palletizing to receive step-by-step guidance through the process of setting up a palletizing application. Designed to reduce deployment time by eliminating complexity, the software allows even inexperienced end users to deploy the system in a fraction of the time it would take using traditional programming interfaces. For example, using OnRobot Palletizing, an inexperienced end user can set up a complete palletizing application in a day, compared to 12 days or more with conventional programming software. Redeployment is even faster, with the same inexperienced end user reprogramming the cell for a different palletizing application in just half a day. Palletizing application deployment guidance is also available on the free site Learn about Robot online learning platform.
- The AboutRobot 2FGP20, a powerful and versatile electric palletizing gripper with a 20 kg payload and customizable arms that can handle standard cardboard boxes as well as open boxes and ready-to-use products while handling slip sheets without changing grippers or requiring additional handling; no external air supply required.
- The AboutRobot Elevator100, a robust lift with a total payload of 100 kg which provides a 7e axis for brands of cobots and light industrial robots; TÜV-certified shutdown functionality facilitates safe and efficient collaborative deployments; ensures safe and precise positioning even at high speeds.
- The AboutRobot Pallet station, durable floor pallet fixings designed to ensure consistent positioning; each comes with a built-in sensor to detect the presence of pallets.
“Small and medium-sized businesses need palletizing automation that’s easy to use, quick to deploy, and affordable, even if the application changes over time,” says Enrico Krog Iversen, CEO of OnRobot. “OnRobot Palletizer combines fast deployment times with a small footprint and the best price on the market – all using our application-centric approach that gives customers far more flexibility than traditional approaches. OnRobot Palletizer can be deployed ready to jobs and with minimal disruption to existing factory and warehouse layouts.”
Manual palletizing is laborious, repetitive and not very ergonomic, making it an ideal candidate for automation. Automated palletizing increases productivity and throughput and improves quality and ergonomics.
“By making collaborative automation affordable and available to businesses of all sizes and with all levels of technology proficiency, OnRobot is breaking down global barriers to adoption while creating a unique ‘one-stop-shop’ designed to meet all the automation and business requirements of manufacturing and warehouse businesses,” says Iversen. “OnRobot Palletizer is a powerful addition to our growing portfolio of hardware and software solutions for collaborative applications.”
OnRobot Palletizing software “significantly reduces the setup time needed to get the application running,” says Adrián Pérez Martínez, CTO and co-founder of Neobotik, a Huelva-based automation integrator. Spain, one of the sites where OnRobot Palletizer was tested before its launch. “It’s so easy to install all the hardware and software during initial cell setup. And the graphical user interface allows even non-expert programmers to program a complete palletizing solution.”
OnRobot Palletizer has three main advantages over existing palletizing automation, says Martínez: “It’s quick to deploy. It has an easy to use programming interface. And the gripper weight is optimal, making it ideal for a wide range of collaborative palletizing applications. , including in industries such as food and beverage, where there is a high flow of open boxes ready for palletizing and where picking up boxes with a traditional vacuum gripper is not possible. »
