Choosing an automatic robotic palletizer over a conventional automatic unit isn't always the best option. This article compares features of both palletizer types and outlines their benefits to help you determine which is best suited to your packaging operation, production rate, and budget.
Both conventional and robotic bag palletizers automatically accept filled bags from bagging equipment, arrange the bags into layers, and load the layers onto pallets. Both are controlled by PLCs with a touchscreen operator interface. But conventional and robotic palletizers have different mechanisms for arranging the filled bags in layers and on pallets, and they're suited to different production rates.
