Frozen Food Palletizing
While palletizing cases in a low temperature environment is not the most specialized application we have ever automated, designing highly effective and efficient systems for frozen food palletizing tends to require added levels of ingenuity, skill and experience.
From specialized suits to protect the robots to unique designs that automate every process while utilizing very little space, developing frozen food robotic palletizers is as much of an art as it is a science.
Protective Suits for Robots
Frozen environments require us to integrate heated suits that eliminate problems associated with frozen and blocked airlines while keeping the robot operating at an optimal level.
We typically enhance the electrical and pneumatic components with special enclosures, heaters and other components to compensate for sub-zero conditions and give operators full control over the system’s temperature.
Minimizing human exposure to the freezing area often involves the automation of the pallet dispensing and discharging processes.
Given the high costs associated with maintaining such a low temperature in a facility, frozen food palletizers typically require a a design with a small footprint.
