In these days of economic pressure, only the companies that have robotic equipment are in a better position to answer to the consumer's changing demands. Such equipment is now within the reach of businesses because their prices have been slashed down due to the advantages of mass production. They are now at the center of manufacturing operations. They help by not only reducing operation costs, perfecting quality and increasing productivity but also provide safety to employees.
Palletizing in industries has come a long way from the days when manual stacking was the only option. It was during the 1990s that robotic palletizes came into their own and started replacing traditional layer palletisers. They are widely used in end of line packaging procedures. Manufacturers interested in clean and lean processes should seriously consider employing robotic cells for all palletizing applications. They offer flexibility, reliability and increased productivity. The Robotic Cells are capable of handling even a single case accumulation at a time, thereby eliminating the requirement of additional conveyors. Those fitted with a vision system are able to pick cases that are randomly lying around and stock them according to a preplanned program of pattern. They are in a better position to handle packaging flaws arising out of irregularly formed cases and bulging cases.
For packaging lines, most manufacturers look for equipment that offers…
