1. Layer palletizing
With layer palletizing, items will be stacked and moved much more rapidly than with a choose–and–place method. By way of programming, there may be not a lot distinction between transferring one field or a number of on the similar time. As soon as a layer has been accomplished, the gripper will transfer the neatly aligned gadgets over to the pallet in a single motion. Nearly all of our prospects 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 gadgets on the similar time, there are nonetheless methods you utilize it to implement a layer palletizing software. For instance, the OmniPack resolution has a ‘magic pack’ choice that automates the method of filling in pallet layers in essentially the most optimum manner. There may be additionally scope to make the most of a customized made gripper.
2. Pallet stacking
Pallet stacking is a comparatively easy process on paper, however it’s taxing and may simply result in harmful errors. To maximise security and make sure you’re getting as many gadgets onto every pallet as potential, the best sample for stacking your pallet is in an ‘overlapping brick’ formation. Nevertheless, when working at velocity and with masses that may rapidly develop into tiring, your staff will develop into extra vulnerable to errors and damage. They might deviate from the proper stacking methodology or use poor kind to raise vital masses.
At finest, an inefficient stacking methodology will waste area and result in greater logistics prices. At worst, a complete pallet of products, which might weigh lots of of kilos, might topple over and lead to critical damage 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.
