Palletizing robots are the perfect tools for optimizing the manufacturing production line, while packing goods onto pallets for transfer and delivery. Automating this process leads to faster cycle times and higher levels of precision, increasing efficiency and reducing costs, while improving working conditions and employee safety.
Modern manufacturing and production are highly demanding in terms of increasing levels of growth, speed, scale and efficiency, all while requiring processes to be kept as cost-effective as possible. Some of the challenges facing palletizing and stacking processes are:
Enormously flexible, suitable for a very wide range of applications, and economical in situations where many different types of task are required.
Suitable for almost all consumer products in uniform packs, cases, crates or bags. Products are rotated and orientated into layers, then layered onto pallets.
A flexible and economical solution for palletizing most consumer goods products; easy to operate and maintain.
No two companies have exactly similar requirements, so no two Körber palletizing robot systems are the same. Each one is flexible, custom built, and adjustable to fit customer requirements. One of Körber’s key strengths is the in-house expertise to design and implement the right system and material flow environment in exact accordance with your needs.
Körber’s wide-ranging experience in both robotics and logistics is coupled with a deep knowledge of software and systems integration for all aspects of the supply chain.
No off-the-peg solution, systems are custom built to fit material flow environment and each customer’s individual requirements.
We pride ourselves in technology leadership within the industry, and our in-house R&D department is exploring the next generation of state-of-the-art robotics. We have a complete portfolio of products, each system tailored to your needs. We are also uniquely placed to offer the complete logistics solution, with the infrastructure, reach and financial backing of a truly global company. This scope, and our own manufacturing capacity for machines, conveyors and auxiliary components, means we are also unmatched in more pragmatic and everyday areas such as the availability of spare parts.
Körber palletizing robots are in use by some the world’s largest manufacturers, including:
BASF, Kimberly-Clark, Mars, Melitta, Miele, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble and Unilever
When you’re managing a warehouse or distribution center, gripper systems are an integral part of your material handling equipment. With a wealth of industry knowledge and experience, Körber’s experts understand that your palletizing requirements are unique. That’s why we provide a complete range of gripper solutions that can be configured to meet your exact needs.
Within a high-performance palletizing system, there are key challenges related to gripper systems:
Körber provides an all-encompassing suite of industry-leading solutions. Our gripper systems are designed to enable the safe and secure handling of all products being palletized, including, but not limited to, cartons, boxes, baskets, trays, bags, foil packs, buckets and bottles.
Our grippers can generally be classified into four groups: clamping grippers, fork grippers, suction grippers, and magnetic grippers. However, if you have a particularly complex palletizing requirement, our material handling experts can design, build and implement a tailored gripper system to meet your exact specifications.
