Advantages of robots for palletizing, depalletizing and packing with drag&bot

Which technologies are used?

Erectors, sealers and gluers for cartons

Packaging lines differ not only in the possible carton sizes but also in terms of performance and the possibility of refilling cartons during operation without having to stop the line.

Depalletizing with a 3D camera and barcode scanners

Using 3D image processing systems, cartons can be reliably detected on pallets and stacked on a conveyor belt. With barcode scanners, gripped cartons can be scanned directly before being deposited.

Line separators

Used to separate two or more lanes of a line into one lane.

Layer Picking

Specially designed grippers can pick up a whole layer of products and fill a complete level in the carton. The most common are suction pads, which can suck the product from the top.

Palletizing Pack Pattern Generator (PPPG)

The PPPG calculates the optimal packing pattern for arranging cardboards on pallets.

Labeling & Marking

Robots can also simultaneously apply labels and tags to cartons or pallets in the palletizing process.

Handler for bags with bulk material

In the case of heavy bags with bulk material, grippers are usually used that can grip the bags from below, since suction from above can put a lot of strain on the bags and even cause them to tear, as well as consuming a lot of compressed air.
