Many don’t realize that robot arms can be equipped with an End of Arm Tool (EOAT) that is capable of cleanly grabbing multiple products at once. Check out a video of this system in action on YouTube.
Midwest Engineered Systems built an automated palletizing system that utilizes a robot with a comb-like gripper that picks up multiple items in one go and places them neatly on a pallet. The palletizer system can stack at a rate of five placements a minute. Our custom-designed robot gripper made this palletizing process a breeze.
Robotic automation like this has found success palletizing materials from cardboard trays of product up to large, heavy bags of cement, with little to no need for hard-to-find, intensive manual labor. Read more about how we made this automation work.
