FlexLink offers a complete product handling capability throughout the production process, including the requirement to palletize the products. Palletizing is placing and securing units or containers on pallets, usually at the end of line.
The flexibility of the systems and the ability to reprogram for changes of product, or re-installation in other applications within a factory, ensures a long-term yield on the investment.
Typical applications can be tissue paper rolls, all sorts of plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, etc.
FlexLink works with the major robotic suppliers to ensure we meet your specific production requirements. The robots can generally handle up to 50 kg individual product loads.
Individual grippers can be designed for specific applications if the standard range are not suitable.
Standardized palletizing cell with collaborative robot
The standardized palletizing cell from FlexLink is compact, quick to install and easy to configure. The use of a collaborative robot reduces the footprint by over 50%, compared to cells with industrial robots.
The solution is designed for closed carton boxes applications, with a maximum capacity of 8 cartons per minute. Suited for boxes with a weight up to 8 kg.
No fence system or cage is necessary, operators can work safely side-by-side with the robot unit. The palletizing cell permits continuous operations.
Operating cost is low, with no need for external air supply. The unit includes an internal vacuum pump for easy reallocation of the palletizing cell. The unit’s smart design with quick connectors contributes to a fast installation in only a few hours.
You can quickly design a palletizing unit with the FlexLink Design Tool and get a preliminary validation of the capacity with the built-in simulation. This tool is also used to design conveyors and complete production lines. The unit is easy to integrate with the line design thanks to the drag and drop functionality.
