A Palletizing Machine!
The Dual M-Stack Robotic Palletizing Cell is a cost effective solution designed to streamline the palletizing processes and enhance operational efficiency. These systems can be easily reconfigured to accommodate different product sizes, shapes, and stacking patterns. This palletizing system was designed and built as a solution for handling a variety of rolls, but the compact, symmetric cell could be used to palletize cases, bags, cans, etc.

With two palletizing locations, the Dual M-Stack is a palletizing machine that ensures maximum efficiency in material handling tasks.

Customer’s Challenge

Implementing a robotic roll handling solution like the Dual M-Stack Robotic Palletizer solved numerous issues including:

    Manual Roll Palletizing

  • The customer had a variety of rolls that went from 20 pounds to 175 pounds.
  • Employees were repetitively lifting heavy rolls.
  • Needed to improve handling quality of rolls
  • Needed to optimize operations to reduced downtime and increased productivity.
  • The available floor space was limited, necessitating an efficient and compact palletizing solution.
  • Limited budget for the project

Solution – Dual M-Stack Roll Palletizer

We were able to deign a system with dual palletizing locations using a popular material handling robot to do all the heavy lifting. The efficient design allowed for continuous operation without having to automate moving pallets into and out of the cell. The flexibility of the system extended to its ability to handle a wide range of roll sizes, weights, and configurations. The EoAT could pick a variety of rolls. Whether rolls are in bags or individually wrapped, with or without core plugs, the Dual M-Stack Robotic Palletizer delivers consistent performance and precision.
See how we accomplished all this by watching the system in action.

Sequence of Operations:

palletizing machine

  1. Pallet is added by an operator to both sides of the system.
  2. An upstream roll upender orients rolls from core horizontal to core vertical before conveying them into the robot cell.
  3. The robot picks a tier sheet with the vacuum cups located on the EoAT and places the sheet on the empty pallet.
  4. The robot uses the clamp EoAT to pick rolls and place them on the pallet until the layer is complete.
  5. The robot places a new tier sheet on each full layer and continues to palletize the rolls until the stack is complete.
  6. Once the final layer is complete, an integrated safety door partitions the area, allowing the robot to move to the opposite side of the cell to begin building another pallet. This safety feature enables continuous stacking of rolls while ensuring operator safety.
  7. Meanwhile the FANUC M-410 starts palletizing on the second side of the cell- repeating the process.
  8. New roll sizes and instructions can be updated at the system’s HMI.

Robot & EoAT

The system incorporates a Fanuc M-410 palletizing robot capable of handling up to a 400-pound total payload. It utilizes a custom-designed clamp tool equipped with vacuum cups for precise picking of tier sheets.
