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 collaborative palletizer
RC10 is a standardized palletizing cell with collaborative robot, it is compact, quick to install and easy to configure. The use of a collaborative robot significantly reduces the footprint, by over 50% compared to cells with industrial robots maximizing your production floor space.
The machine is specifically made for automatic palletizing of undamaged, clean and square-shaped carton boxes from a fixed picking position. Easy layer configuration with a tablet application, without any need for complicated robot programming.
The collaborative robot is user-safe, making a fence system or a cage unnecessary and instead lets the operator work side-by-side with the robot. RC10 is easy to move for one person, thanks to the docking station.
Machine description, RC10
The machine contains one conveyor and one palletizer with two pallet positions. It is a single pick unit, working at 8 boxes per minute, with a maximum load of 8 kg each. Delivery includes the option to be powered by both 110V and 230V.
Built-in vacuum pump, which allows an effortless move of the palletizing cell – no external air supply is needed.
- conveyor position (right; center-right; center-left; left)
- gripper suction cup size (small or large)
- conveyor height, adjustable support legs (700, 744, 774, 818 or 862 mm)
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.
