Motoman Robot Handling and Palletizing

Using a vacuum gripper, Motoman SP80X robot picks individual sealed cases from an infeed conveyor, places them on a scale, presents cases to a labeler, then stacks them onto a wooden pallet in the appropriate pattern with labels facing out, adding tier sheets as needed.Cases of Medical Products

System meets or exceeds all project goals and objectives. Robot system easily palletizes one case per minute, which is 50 percent faster than required production rate of one case every 90 seconds. Robot system palletizes product up to six layers high, and also handles tier sheets, as required. System places products on scale for weight inspection, presents cases that pass inspection to an automatic labeler, and creates consistent, stable loads with labels facing out. Flexible system reduces need for manual labor.
