The EC-201 robotic palletizer has a palletizing capacity of 1600 cycles per hour and a payload capacity of 440 lb. The unit reportedly can palletize a variety of products including bags, cases and pails. With four axes for maximum flexibility, the unit’s design is said to result in less energy usage and reduced stress on the arm joints. The co. says the touchscreen enables palletizing programs to be changed in less than 5 sec. The touchscreen also allows operators to utilize onboard warning systems, review error occurrences and take corrective measures. Personnel can also monitor I/O in real time, track inventory by specific programs, compare running and powered-up hours and monitor the machine in real time.
