OnRobot unveils collaborative palletising solution

OnRobot has launched OnRobot Palletizer, which it says is a complete collaborative palletising solution designed to simplify and lower the cost of palletising processes.

OnRobot Palletizer extends OnRobot’s application-first approach to collaborative automation by letting users choose a palletising system that works for their specific application needs, offering a space-saving footprint and the ability to handle many different types of boxes, packages, patterns, pallets and stacking heights. Compatible with collaborative robot and light industrial robots from the Doosan, Fanuc, Omron, Techman and Universal Robots brands, the product is available as a complete out-of-the-box system or as individual components to create a mix-and-match solution.

The OnRobot Palletizer includes four new hardware and software elements:

  • OnRobot Palletizing, palletising software that guides users step by step through the deployment from start to finish via a single intelligent interface for all components.
  • The OnRobot 2FGP20, an electric palletising gripper with a 20 kg payload and customisable arms that can handle standard cardboard boxes as well as open boxes and shelf-ready products while also handling slip sheets without changing the gripper or requiring additional handling.
  • The OnRobot Lift100, an elevator with a total payload of 100 kg that provides a 7th axis for cobot and lightweight industrial robot brands; TÜV-certified stop-functionality that facilitates safe and effective collaborative deployments; and provides safe and precise positioning even at high speeds.
  • The OnRobot Pallet Station, floor-mounted pallet fixtures designed to ensure consistent positioning. Each comes with a built-in sensor for detecting pallet presence.

“Small and mid-sized companies need palletising automation that is easy to use, fast to deploy and affordable — even if the application changes over time,” said Enrico Krog Iversen, CEO of OnRobot. “OnRobot Palletizer combines fast deployment times with a small footprint and the best price point in the market — all using our application-focused approach that gives customers much more flexibility than traditional approaches. OnRobot Palletizer can be deployed out of the box and with minimal disruption to existing factory and warehouse layouts.”

Manual palletising is a labour-intensive, repetitive and unergonomic task, which makes it an ideal candidate for automation. Palletising automation increases productivity and throughput and improves quality and ergonomics.

“By making affordable collaborative automation available to companies of all sizes and technology skill levels, OnRobot is breaking down the global barriers to adoption while building a unique one-stop shop designed to meet all the automation and business requirements of manufacturing and warehouse companies,” said Iversen. “OnRobot Palletizer is a powerful addition to our rapidly expanding portfolio of hardware and software solutions for collaborative applications.”
