Common Enhancements

Given our extensive experience and modular approach to developing robotic palletizers, we often integrate additional features and automation into our QSP line of palletizers in quick and cost-effective manner to meet the specific needs of our clients.

Customized "Standard" Palletizers

From basic enhancements to increase the speed of the palletizer to integrating complete upstream and downstream systems, our use of pre-engineered systems and controls still render most systems as "Standard Palletizers" even though they are completely customized to your needs.

Examples

Enhanced Speed

Upstream Process Automation

Downstream Process Automation

Custom Configurations or Footprints

Integrated Quality Control or Tracking

Special Requirements - Temperature, Chemicals, etc.

Customization

While our Quick-Ship Palletizers feature a standard conveying solution for bringing products into the cell, our team will often apply intelligent engineering, smart technology or highly customized options to meet the specific needs of our customers.

Enhanced Speed

When required, there are many ways that we can enhance the speed of a palletizing cell without significant cost or complexity. For instance, our QSP line features options for robotic pallet and sheet picking, but faster speeds can be achieved with our automated pallet and sheet dispensers. 

We have also designed customized infeed systems that have prepped and aligned multiple boxes for pickup - allowing the robot to grab multiple cases at a time and/or position the items on the pallet more quickly.

Upstream Automation

From simple additions like inline labelers or weigh-in-motion scales to completely automated pick and pack systems, our team can work with you to automate many aspects of the upstream process.

See how we designed a system that would...

Pick, erect and tape a corrugated case

Pick and place a heavy roll into the case

Laser marked the core of the roll

Seal, label and sent the case to the palletizing cell

Downstream Automation

Typical downstream process automation can be integrated into virtually any type of palletizer we implement:  QSP, Standard or Customized.  Common types include:

Pallet transfer conveyors and shuttle cars

Stretch wrappers and strapping machines

Pallet labeling and weighing equipment

Custom Configurations or Footprints

While our QSP line features standard configurations utilizing our Smart-Base technology, modifying the designs of palletizing cells can typically be done in a very timely and cost-effective manner.

While a certain amount of programming is required to alter the configurations of our QSP line, our modular approach to design still allows for a great deal of flexibility.

Integrated Quality Control or Tracking

We outfit many cells with various tools that automate quality control, case tracking and more.  Examples include...

Inline scales

Quality control sensors

Inline labelers

Reject Conveyors - Scales and other quality control sensors can be integrated with the robot so that it will pick non-conforming cases and place them on a “reject” conveyor.

Special Requirements

While some special requirements require our design team to develop highly creative solutions using out-of-the-box thinking, many others simply require us to apply some relatively standard accessories or equipment.

One of the most common "special requirements" for which we have developed "standard palletizers" is the food industry - specifically raw meat and frozen foods.  In these cases, we typically start with standard case palletizer, but add a protective suit for the robot and outfit the controls cabinet and other elements of the system to withstand the temperatures.
