Standard Palletizer Cell
Midwest Engineered System’s drop-in case palletizer systems are designed to automate a production line’s palletizing operations as quickly as possible. Our standard system offers everything that’s needed to get you up and running, including automated infeed, outfeed and pallet picking all controlled by an easy-to-use touch screen controller.
While the focused, single SKU operation of the system is designed for increased throughput without the need for dedicated personnel, the palletizer can work on a number of packaging types including sealed cases, trays and bliss-style containers that can be top picked with a vacuum end-of-arm tool. Using pre-made recipes, the system can be set up to switch between SKUs and box types directly on the cell’s HMI.
If more throughput is needed, the MWES systems can be augmented with accessory systems including a second infeed to handle more than one production line with the same robot. Operations can be added to the layering process and beyond including automatic slip-sheeting between layers, multiple pre-programmed layer formats or other specialized options.

Have an application that lies outside this system’s abilities?
At Midwest Engineered Systems we know that not all palletizing operations can use off-the-shelf systems. Packaging can take up a variety of dimensions and palletizing may also need specialized operations. If your packaging process requires more than a standard system can provide, contact MWES today. We can engineer a bespoke solution that can automate even the most demanding palletizing operations.
