Motoman Robot Handling and Palletizing

Motoman HP165 robot equipped with fork-style gripper palletizes poly bags of sodium or potassium silicate material onto pallets at two stretch-wrap stations. (Robot jacket not shown.)Bags of Silicate Product

Flexible system meets or exceeds all system goals and objectives. Robot builds pallet load in prescribed stacking pattern with each layer rotated 180-degrees and fill seams facing the center of the pallet. Robot system easily meets required 6 bpm production rate. Robot system provides tight, consistent loads with less bag damage and particulate release, which significantly reduces washdown and maintenance frequency.
