Palletising and de palletising

Using robots to automate the end of line palletising and the container unloading can bring real benefits very quickly to an organisation, with increased through put of up to 40% along with reduced instants of injury in your workforce

Pick and Place

Pick and place robots are commonly used in modern manufacturing environments. Pick and place automation speeds up the process of picking up parts or items and placing them in other locations. Automating this process helps to increase production rates. Pick and place robots handle repetitive tasks while freeing up human workers to focus on more complex work. Typically mounted on a stable stand, pick and place robots are positioned to reach different areas to perform work. They may use advanced vision systems to identify, grasp and move objects from one place to another. With a variety of design options available, pick and place robots can be configured with various end-of-arm tooling options for use in different applications, such as assembly, packaging or bin picking.
