We provided a turnkey solution which included design, build, and commissioning on the customer site. The new process equipment installed provided a system capable of a higher throughput rate and consisted of: two case infeeds, two pallet outfeeds, a pallet dispenser, a FANUC robotic palletizer, and a Wulftec WCA-Smart stretch wrapper.
The automated palletizing solution greatly improved pallet build quality and process ergonomics as no manual corrections were required by operators. The higher throughput rate equals 5 cases per minute on one in/out and either 32oz (27 trays per minute) or 10oz (20 trays per minute) on the previous line.
The FANUC M-410iB/140H’s versatility, speed and range makes it the best option for case palletizers such as in this application. It’s 5 axis robotic arm will allow it to cope with any palletizing application and package types.
