What is palletizing
Palletizing is a demanding application of stacking boxes, bags, cases, bottles, and cartons onto pallets as the last step in the assembly line before being loaded onto a shipping truck. Pallet pattern flexibility, tooling flexibility, and cycle time are three major challenges of automated palletizing in today's industry. Kawasaki palletizing systems offer solutions to each of these palletizing challenges.
Imporatance of palletizing
Palletizer machines have become an essential part of automation, replacing human error and injury in manufacturing with efficiency and speed. In addition to such benefits, palletizers can handle environments that would otherwise be injurious to workers. Instead of requiring the hire of more laborers to do this work, many companies have adopted palletizers into their workplace environments in order to get the job done more quickly, effectively and safely.
What We DO
Alligator offers two types of automated palletizing. The first type, robotic palletizing, is becoming more popular and more affordable. Likewise traditional, or conventional, palletizers are also widely used including: bag palletizers, case palletizers, and gantry crane palletizers.Our engineers are experts in automating palletizing operations through both robotic and conventional palletizer system. In regards to robotic expertise, we’re an official partner with Fuji and we are skilled with ABB and Fanuc as well
We can provide turnkey solutions, enabling your project to be implemented with a single source of responsibility. This eliminates finger pointing and ensures smoother project implementation.
Advantages of Palletizers
- Stacks better, more accurate quality load than manual labor.
- Replaces costs of manual labor – less workmen’s compensation claims.
- Error reduction and increased production speeds.
- Decrease in product damage and shipping costs.
Alligator Automation specializes in the design and manufacturing of robotic automation solutions. Our robotic palletizing systems, bulk and case solutions, and machine tending equipment have improved the efficiency of plastics, consumer goods, food, and pharmaceutical facilities around the country.
We offer 4 primary robot models. Each model brings its own unique qualities and benefits to the ever-changing market place. From the low cost EC-61 that uses less energy than a common hair dryer to the high speed EC-201 robot capable of palletizing well over 20 bags per minute.
