6. Compact palletizing
Articulated robots are frequently used for palletizing but, because of the required guarding, they can have a pretty big footprint. ONExia introduced its PalletizUR based on a Universal Robots collaborative robot. This creates a palletizer that takes up next to no floor space yet will handle 50% or more of typical palletizing applications for consumer packaged goods (CPG). The light weight of the UR allows ONExia to place the robot on an elevating pedestal, greatly increasing the reach envelope.
