The EC-171 high-speed robotic palletizer operates at speeds up to 20 cycles/min and is equipped with a built-in collision-detection system. The palletizer incorporates the largest working envelope of all the co.'s models while maintaining the smallest rotation radius. The robot can function in tight spaces while maintaining smooth throughput. In respect to the advanced-control scheme, a 10.5-in. color touchscreen is used for human interface control (no laptop required). Within the system there are also onboard diagnostics, an advanced programming platform and up to 400 different preprogrammed recipes.
