Turnkey robot selection with state-of-the-art end-of-arm tooling and product delivery systems are key ingredients of a fully functional and optimized material handling system for product palletizing. Tertiary packaging systems are using robots to a greater extent in providing flexible solutions, especially with difficult to handle cases and/or bags. The selection of robot, in conjunction with robot’s end-of-arm tooling and product infeed and delivery system, are the key aspects of a fully functional handling system for product palletizing.
This bag conveying system incorporates belt-over-roller, center-tracked (conveyors with belts wider than longer), and roller conveyors. The control system provides bag routing capability from three pairs of filling units to two robotic palletizing cells, incorporating bag traffic copping functionality between trunk and filler conveyors.
