Manufacturers require robotic palletizing cells that are more flexible than before, that can handle multiple product sizes and shapes. And can do more than that by handling unstable loads, like wrapped bundles, and high full loads up to 108 inches tall.
Axium’s IxOFlex solution uses a unique product grouping system that can handle multiple products with the same robotic cell and permits the creation of half or full layers either using robots or conventional technology. The cell handles cartons, cases and bundles up to 4 different SKUs simultaneously using the Pmax tool that also can supply empty pallets when required.
The Wrapbotic module, the integrated stretch wrapper, secures unstable loads as they are being built. This process makes sure that the products will not move or drop when an extra layer will be added, or when the full pallet advances to be taken out.
The system can palletize products up to 30 inches in length and up to 24 inches wide. Rates are to 85 cases per minute for full layers and up to 25 cases per minute for half layers.
