Ehcolo A/S supplies robotic palletizers, based on Motoman robots. Based on our yearlong experience with our own manufactured gantry robots, we manufacture and supply pick-up units and the pheriferical equipment like conveyors etc.
Our goal at start of using robots in palletizing was that we should reach a performance quality as close as possible to our own palletizers. In order to reach that level of quality on robot palletizing, we designed and manufactured a pick-up unit, which compensated for the shortages, which the robot by nature has, e.g. automatic layer height measuring and top-pressing. So it is not possible to palletize any better with robot, than we do now, regardless if it is overlapping or side-by-side palletizing.
The advantage of a palletizing robot compared to a conventional palletizer is, that it takes less space, so in order to further minimize space and supply of equipment, we have designed our pick-up unit so, that it also can pick-up and dispense empty pallets from a stack and in case further also can pick-up and dispense pallet protection sheets, slip-sheets and layer sheets.
These many functions and the palletizing quality does, that the capacity do not exceed 600 bags per hour.
But if we use our high speed pick-up unit, then we can achieve capacities up to 1200 bags per hour. But depending on product and desired quality, we might also offer one of our own make of palletizers, which takes more space, but are the most compact available.
Besides palletizing we also do de-palletizing for both bags and boxes, well any products, which need and can be picked and moved from one place to another.
Robot palletizing of boxes
We have also supplied robotic palletizer for palletizing of boxes, and where we normally use our vacuum pick-up tool. We have even supplied one system with an automatic tool changer, so the robot can palletize both bags and boxes.
For lower capacity packing lines, we have developed a ”Place – and – go” robot cell, with two palletizing places, here can be palletized on one pallet, while the other full pallet is taken out and an empty pallet is placed. Investment is very low, so return on investment is very short.
