Robot palletizer





The AF-PLT is an economical solution to automate the pallet building process. The AF-PLT uses a 3-axis robot to pick-and-place a variety of products such as cases, pails and more. The 3-axis robot ensures easier set up and maintenance compared to more sophisticated robots on the marketplace. This compact palletizer can include optional features such as slip sheet inserters, pallet dispensers and washdown construction. Users can easily program and changeover pack patterns quickly on the palletizer's HMI. In addition, the AF-PLT's modular design allows the machine to be easily integrated into a production line. The end effector on the AF-PLT is custom engineered to handle multiple case sizes so operators will not have to change the end effector when changing over to different case sizes. This significantly reduces changeover time. Allen Bradley controls and servo motors are standard on the AF-PLT which ensures easy troubleshooting and smooth motions.
