Most companies that package their products in bags, boxes, crates and cartons are taking advantage of robotic palletizers as an important part of industrial robotics.
Palletizing is an extremely tedious process as it involves the arranging of loads such as cartons, bags or boxes onto pallets ready to be shipped to the market.
The palletizing process has greatly benefited from the automation of collaborative robots. There are two types of palletizing solutions namely; conventional and robotic solutions.
However, there has been a significant move from the conventional solution to the robotic systems over the past few years.
Disadvantages of Conventional Solutions
Higher maintenance costs
Expensive purchasing cost as compared to a robotic solution.
