To report on the design and development of a robotic palletizing system that handles both pails of lubricant as well as cardboard cartons or cases.
The customer selected a material‐handling expert to design and install the system after reviewing the offerings from a number of suppliers.
Careful planning, detailed simulation and attention to details helped ensure that the working production system was in service to meet a tight deadline.
Robotic solutions can be designed to handle a multitude of product configurations. Hiring an expert in the particular application type with specific prior experience addressing the project requirements can prove very beneficial. Improving throughput is just one of many benefits that such a project can provide. Other benefits may include, improving workplace safety, reducing floor space needs and adapting to small order sizes.
Knowing what others have accomplished can provide not only a project plan but can also bring fresh ideas to other projects. Helps designers think outside the box.
