Intelligrated, a Cincinnati, OH-based leading North American-owned automated material handling solutions provider with operations in the U.S., Mexico and Canada, has released a new white paper discussing the viability of various types of palletizing technologies, ranging from conventional machines to robotic solutions.
“Conventional vs. Robotic Palletizing” outlines the specific applications that favor robotic, conventional and hybrid palletizing solutions.
Rather than getting immersed in ambiguous statistics and marketing buzz words like “flexible” or “fixed automation,” the paper looks at the specific applications that favor certain palletizing technology to determine if the future of palletizing is exclusively robotic.
Robotic palletizing favors lower-speed operations as well as applications where the product shape demands the precision of an articulated arm. Conventional palletizers are ideal for very high-speed applications and remain flexible in regards to product packaging and stacking patterns. The paper also highlights the recent innovation of conventional and robotic combinations, which yield a solution that combines the flexibility and repeatability of robotic arms with the speed and reliability of conventional palletizers.
