CMES Robotics & BHS Robotics to Demonstrate Mixed Case Palletizing Solution at Pack Expo 2022

Visitors will be able to watch and interact with mixed palletizing robots.

October 10th, Seattle, WA— Today, CMES Robotics and BHS robotics announced that they will be demonstrating mixed case palletizing of various box sizes utilizing an ABB midrange 6-axis robot at Pack Expo International 2022. The event will take place October 23 -26 at McCormick Place in Chicago.


"Until now, robotic automation has faced technical challenges with conventional palletizing, as it can only manage a limited number of case sizes with known stacking sequences," said Alex Choe, President of CMES Robotics. "CMES Robotics has created a flexible and dependable solution for mixed case palletizer by providing a software that works with popular industrial robots."

Combining technologies of CMES Robotics robot vision and AI algorithm, BHS Robotics depalletizing platform and an ABB IRB 2600 robot, the mixed palletizing solution can handle almost any type of boxes, cartons, bags, and pallet types. Additionally, the mixed palletizing software helps address labor shortages and reduce worker injuries related to stressful and tedious manual labor.

"Customer requirements are changing when it comes to mixed packages and the ability to properly palletize and de-palletize skids of products with varying sizes," said Christopher Clark, President of BHS Robotics. "Robotic automation needs to be technically advanced using robots, vision, software and hardware together to make a smart and flexible system to handle this challenge."

CMES Robotics Palletizing Solutions consist of:
• CMES Robotics Vision Sensor & AI Software
• BHS Robotics Palletizing Platform Design and Integration
• ABB IRB 2600 with a reach of 1.65 meters and payload of 20 kilograms
• Capable of 600 Cartoons per Hour (CPH)
• Fast Mobile Deployment
