Standard Robotic Palletizer - Midwest Engineered Systems

The Challenge

This firm came to MWES looking to robotically automate their palletizing process, in a fast and efficient way.  The system had to perform under these metrics:

  • Palletize multiple sizes of corrugated boxes with one robotic automation system
  • The robotic integration would need no product changeover
  • Production rates of up to 80 cases per minute
  • The automation system would have the ability to produce multiple pallet patterns

The Solution

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

  • Fanuc robotic PalletPRO palletizing solution
  • Dynamic vacuum end of arm tool (EOAT) designed for case variety
  • Activated Roller Belt (ARB) row forming in-feed conveyor
  • MWES Model PD1000 automated pallet dispenser
  • Custom integrated chain-driven live roller pallet conveyor system
  • A slip sheet storage rack for slip sheet application during the palletizing process
  • MWES dropped box manual recovery system
  • Robot integrated automatic stretch wrapping system

Impact to the Customer

The automation system MWES provided this firm has the ability to palletize more than 80 cases per minute, while handling multiple case sizes and pallet patterns, without any tooling changeovers.
