A new logistics system is dubbed Palligistics™, a patent-pending method to create mixed, display, rainbow and repalletized pallets from homogeneous loads. The co. describes the "intelligent palletizing logistics" workcell concept as also allowing pick-to-order palletizing at the packaging plant or distribution warehouse. In cooperation with a system partner, the intelligent solution includes a software platform permitting direct order fulfillment. A unique, robotic gripper, the CFVC 200, works like human arms in separate but complementary patterns, setting mixed pack sizes into optimal loads with no changeover, the co. says.
