Australis Engineering simPAL Mini cobot palletiser
simPAL Mini is a cobot palletiser combining software and hardware to create a flexible palletising solution. The cobot palletiser features the TM12 collaborative robot from Techman Robots with a payload capacity of 12 kg and 1300 mm reach, allowing simPAL Mini to palletise onto a standard 1165 mm Australian pallet and operate at up to eight cycles/min.
simPAL Mini requires minimal floor space, 270 mm wider than a pallet, making it suitable for small spaces. It also has the option of single or double pallet positions.
The TM12 includes a fully integrated vision system utilising a 5 MP camera. Combined with TM-Flow software, the cobot’s vision system can read text, barcodes or QR codes and distinguish shapes and colours, all of which offer flexibility and futureproofing of the palletising system.
simPAL Mini can read the text or barcode on a carton and correctly palletise that product accordingly. This innovation allows easier, more flexible product integration or the addition of new product or packaging types.
simPAL Software is said to allow new products to be introduced without requiring costly reprogramming and helps owners easily generate new pallet patterns and save new recipes. It features an automatic pallet generator that creates an optimised pattern. Custom patterns can also be created directly on the touch screen. Coupled with the lead-to-teach capabilities of a Techman Robot, programming a simple pick and place can be achieved in around 5 min.
