Realize a Cobotic Palletizer without the Need for an Additional Mechanical Axis
The current demand for optimization of load volumes for a positive impact in the world of logistics requires new solutions that guarantee, among other things, higher pallets with better volume management.
The introduction and diffusion of cobots have greatly helped the management of outgoing logistics, but unfortunately, the use of an external axis is often required to ensure the necessary reachability for ever-taller pallets.
The Doosan Robotics family of cobots also includes a 1700 mm reachability solution. This feature allows the cobot to assemble a 2 m high Eur-Pallet Type 2 (or ISO2) without the use of external axes, simplifying installation, management, risk analysis and reducing the economic impact of the collaborative cell.
Homberger implemented this solution by taking advantage of the effectiveness of Schmalz’s FXCB suction plane, specially designed to be in compliance with the TS/15066 and with a load capacity of up to 8 kg.
