Add-a-Pal turns a new or existing case packer into an economical case packer and palletizer. The unit is designed as a “plug-in” robotic palletizer. Using PLC controls to operate the palletizer, the newly formed case packer/palletizer system completes case packing and palletizing functions, even in minimal floor space environments. Equipped with a FANUC robot capable of up to30 picks per minute, the unit enables high throughput for single or multiple products. Custom end-of-arm tooling options include vacuum, mechanical, fork or a combination of these with or without pallet hooks and slip sheet handling to pick product, stack in the required pattern and palletize. Pallet handling options include manual to fully automatic pallet exchange with pallet dispenser.
