Standard Robotic Palletizer - Midwest Engineered Systems

Midwest Engineered Systems used robotic integration to design a system with the ability to palletize 80 cases or more per minute.

The Challenge

  • Palletize multiple sizes of corrugated boxes with one robotic automation system

  • The robotic integration would need no product changeover

  • Product rates of up to 80 boxes per minute

  • The automation system would have the ability to produce multiple pallet patterns

  • Slip sheet handling

  • Pallet dispensing

  • Robotic integration of an automatic stretch wrapping system

The Solution

The following industrial automation methods, components and technologies were implemented and integrated to provide a comprehensive robotic automation solution:

  • Fanuc robotic palletizing solution (PalletPRO)

  • Dynamic end of arm tool designed for case variety (vacuum)

  • Activated Roller Belt (ARB) row forming in-feed conveyor

  • MWES Model PD1000 pallet dispenser

  • Custom integrated chain driven live roller (CDLR) pallet conveyor system

  • Slip sheet storage rack

  • MWES dropped box manual recovery system

  • Integrated automatic stretch wrapping system

Impact to the Customer

  • The automation system has the ability to palletize 80 cases or more per minute

  • Ability to handle multiple case sizes with no change over

  • Ability to automatically accommodate multiple pallet patterns

  • Easy to use and easy to maintain
