Midwest Engineered Systems built a robotic palletizing system that could move over 80 cases per minute. The robotic integration required no tooling changes to accommodate varying case sizes, or to handle the layer slip sheets. This system also utilizes an automated pallet dispenser, and can produce multiple pallet patterns.
Many don’t realize that robot arms can be equipped with an EOAT that is capable of cleanly grabbing multiple products at once. Our custom designed robot gripper made this palletizing process a breeze.
The project was certainly a palletizing process that needed to be automated, but it required much closer management than standard palletizing.
Based on using one of our turnkey de-palletizer cells, we’ve put together a case study discussing how the system helped a manufacturer reduce a large bottleneck at the front end of their production process. Within the document, we talk about its real world performance and the benefits it brings to producers who are looking to automate material intake processes.
With its automated material storage and retrieval processes, the MWES ASRS buffer system can give a facility back valuable manufacturing time and reduce production errors. The MWES ASRS system can store materials in not only in an efficient manner, it allows for production environments to quickly manage materials as needed. The system does this by cataloging materials and their locations by how they integrate into the production process.
