1. Layer palletizing
With layer palletizing, items may be stacked and moved way more shortly than with a choose–and–place strategy. By way of programming, there’s not a lot distinction between transferring one field or a number of on the identical time. As soon as a layer has been accomplished, the gripper will transfer the neatly aligned objects over to the pallet in a single motion. The vast majority of our clients use pneumatic grippers designed by our UR+ companions and system integrators.
Whereas the utmost payload and attain of a cobot guidelines out carrying a number of heavy objects on the identical time, there are nonetheless methods you employ it to implement a layer palletizing software. For instance, the OmniPack answer has a ‘magic pack’ possibility that automates the method of filling in pallet layers in essentially the most optimum method. There’s additionally scope to make the most of a customized made gripper.
2. Pallet stacking
Pallet stacking is a comparatively easy job on paper, however it’s taxing and might simply result in harmful errors. To maximise security and make sure you’re getting as many objects onto every pallet as potential, the best sample for stacking your pallet is in an ‘overlapping brick’ formation. Nonetheless, when working at pace and with hundreds that may shortly grow to be tiring, your staff will grow to be extra prone to errors and harm. They may deviate from the proper stacking technique or use poor kind to elevate important hundreds.
At greatest, an inefficient stacking technique will waste house and result in greater logistics prices. At worst, a whole pallet of products, which might weigh a whole lot of kilos, might topple over and end in critical harm or loss of life. Letting your cobot deal with pallet stacking is extra environment friendly, as your cobot gained’t deviate from the stacking sample you’ve programmed and create an unstable stack.
