Intelligrated showcases comprehensive robotic palletizing and depalletizing capabilities at PACK EXPO 2017
Single-source solutions leverage robotics, auxiliary systems to handle variety of operational demands reliably and efficiently
(LAS VEGAS: Sept. 26, 2017)— At booth #C-3906 at PACK EXPO 2017, Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com) highlights comprehensive robotic palletizing and depalletizing capabilities, combining technical expertise, application experience and integration support built around unique operational requirements.
Intelligrated is recognized as a certified robot integrator by the Robotic Industries Association, offering complete Alvey® robotic solutions and auxiliary systems, including case and pallet conveyor, sorters and other equipment for seamless integration and reliable performance. Systems come with integrated software and controls, for easy training and daily use, and PLC-based IntelliGen™ palletizing software for simple adjustment of patterns and load configuration. Intelligrated offers a variety of end-of-arm tooling designed for the specifics of each application and tested with actual customer product for exceptional reliability. This range of software and tooling delivers the product handling flexibility operations demand and is compatible with a choice of robotic arms from multiple manufacturers, including Motoman, FANUC and KUKA.
• Robotic palletizing solutions build stable pallet loads for wholesale distribution or retail replenishment, with advanced functionality like mixed-load pallets and labels-out configuration for store display.
• Full-layer depalletizing solutions leverage specialized end-of-arm tooling, a layer separator table, kicker-roller, v-belt skew conveyor, unscrambler and takeaway conveyor - all designed and built in-house, to unload full pallet layers, singulate individual cases and transport to downstream processes.
• Robotic unitizing solutions build pallet loads not on pallets, but directly onto conveyor or slip sheets, a practice common in manufacturing operations serving a variety of international markets or handling empty containers.
• Stack-and-wrap robotic palletizing solutions incrementally stretch wrap pallet loads as each layer is built to secure unstable or difficult-to-handle loads by integrating palletizing and stretch wrapping, and utilizing a single control system.
