Robotic Palletizing Solutions

Yaskawa Motoman offers a broad-range of robots specifically designed for layer-forming, palletizing/depalletizing applications. 

Yaskawa robots are accompanied by a host of innovative palletization technologies designed for flexibility, ease of use and enhanced productivity. Capabilities include:

  • 4-, 5-, or 6-axis palletizer robots with payload capacities from 50 kg to 800 kg
  • MotoSight 2D and 3D robot vision systems to enable palletizing and depalletizing in structured or unstructured environments
  • MotoSim®, a comprehensive software package that provides accurate 3D simulation of robot cells, reach modeling, cycle calculations and off-line programming of complex systems

NSF-H1 certified food grade lubricants are standard on most of our palletizing robots, making them applicable in a wide variety of industries and environments including food and beverage, warehouse and distribution, and industrial products.

Our network of system integrators, Motoman Strategic Partners, offers application expertise to deliver turn-key robotic palletizing, order picking, or warehouse distribution systems to meet your market demands.

New Call-to-action Palletizing software to add intelligence and flexibility

Our software suite includes MotoSight™ for vision-guided applications and PalletSolver® for homogeneous case or bag palletization are designed for ease of use and ease of integration of turn-key robotic systems.

PalletSolver is a pattern generation tool that facilitates quick changeover of pallet patterns or products without halting production for validation. The easy to use full featured palletizing software enables offline pattern build/import with constraints handling and interface for monitoring and controlling the entire palletization process with supervisory controls. This software is available for both DX and MLX platforms. Read the Red Devil case study from Packaging World

Yaskawa DX100 robot controller for robotic palletizing

DX-Series Controllers

Robust PC architecture provides system level controls for robotic work-cells. DX controllers are powered with patented multiple robot control that can control up to 8 robots or 72 axes. The full featured touch-screen color HMI is standard with the robot teach pendant.

DX controllers are accompanied by Functional Safety Unit (FSU) that enables building tight workspaces and collaborative human-machine interactions with ease.

PLC robot controller - Yaskawa MLX200


MLX200 offers a unique approach to program and control robots entirely through Rockwell Automation’s CompactLogix™ and ControlLogix® Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC). The PLC system now controls the robot along with other peripheral equipment such as conveyors, fillers and sensors. There is no need for additional robot controller or even the robot language to program. Everything is done through widely used PLC ladder. This approach offers tremendous benefits as the systems are very easy to use and, importantly, easy to maintain.

Palletizing Systems

Yaskawa Motoman's network of integration partners have designed, built and comissioned fully-automated palletizing and depalletizing systems for a variety of industries and materials. Here are a few examples of recent projects:

Speeding up changeover for bag palletizing

Motoman integration partner Hamer-Fischbein combined the bagging and palletizing for this livestock feed producer to remove a bottleneck in the previous process.
