With the introduction of new robot system technologies, the face of manufacturing is continually undergoing major changes. One area in particular where measurable savings are being seen is in the area of automated palletising solutions which have the ability to handle products of all shapes, sizes and weights.
This change in direction has been due to several factors. One of the main ones is due to the innovative designs that make up a new range of robot manipulators that enable such varying functions to be carried out.
In the last few years the flexibility, speed, payloads and reach of the robots has increased while the range of functionality a gripper now has allows a single robot to service varying size and shape product over multiple lines simultaneously if required.
