Case Studies


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:

Flexible case packing & palletizing for Rockline Industries

Motoman integration partner CRG Technologies worked with Rockline industries to integrate a flexible case packing and palletizing system for flow-wrapped packs of baby wipes..

MLX robot control and PalletSolver software enables all programming to be handled from Rockline's existing PLC, using ladder logic - making the system more simple to program, operate and reproduce for other lines and locations.

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.

MLX 300 robot software add-on for PLC-based programmingMLX Robot Control

MLX 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 to learn to program with a robot language. 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 software adds intelligence and flexibility

Robotic Packaging 3D Tour

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.

Motoman Palletizer Robots

Motoman MPL300 palletizer robotThe use of robotics for palletizing applications continues to be one of the fastest growing segments in robotics. Our line of palletizer robots range from 50 kg to 800 kg payload with 4-6 axes of articulation.

With this wide range of payload capacity, it’s your choice to pick single-case or an entire layer for stacking and breaking down pallet loads.

All of our palletizer robot models are compatible with our MLX package, allowing you to program them and run our PalletSolver software directly from your PLC.
