Kawasaki Robotics puts the case for space-saver robot palletising systems at TOTAL
Kawasaki Robotics is using The Total Exhibition to demonstrate how an area, not much larger than two euro pallets, can cost effectively house a high throughput palletising system. Using its compact RD80N palletising robot and ‘standard’ ancillary components, the system will illustrate a strong case to automate any end of line process where there is limited space available.
At the core of the system is the Kawasaki RD80N robot mounted in an elevated position immediately over the input conveyor. This positioning maximises available space allowing the robot to comfortably meet most conventional palletising demands with its reach of 2.1Mtr and palletising height of up to 3.31Mtr.
Removing the need for a pallet stacker, the RD80N robot will illustrate its ability to handle and accurately position standard wooden pallets prior to palletising; similarly the robot is able to handle layer separators from a stack in the cell.
Further helping to make the palletising cell straight-forward to integrate is Kawasaki’s latest E-Controller. The E-Controller offers faster processing, increased memory, higher resolution encoding, increased communications options and intuitive teach pendant functionality.
