Automated Palletising System
KAON Automation is one of Ireland’s leading automation specialists. We have just completed another high tech, customised machine for one of the world’s leading manufacturers. This automated palletising system stacks layers of boxes of customer product on pallets with options for 5, 6 or 7 layers per pallet. The machine:
- Automatically loads 25kg pallets from a pallet stack (10 pallets) to a conveyor.
- It then automatically loads 10 x 10.5kg boxes from the end of the production line to each layer of the pallet.
- Automatically moves full pallets to an outfeed area
The machine uses a KUKA 6 axis robot with a 2.7m reach. KAON are experts in a range of robots and have extensive experience using ABB, FANUC, Mitsubishi and Staubli robots allowing full flexibility to meet customer needs. The system is fully integrated into the existing production line with a modular guard cell that can be expanded, if necessary, without any custom parts.
As part of a complimentary range of packaging systems including high speed case packing our standard palletising cells, can offer options for the following;
- Box size & weight
- Layer patterns & layer numbers
- Slip sheet placement
- Auto Pallet dispensing
- Auto Pallet wrapping
- Integration of labelling systems
- Integration of serialisation
This machine was delivered ahead of schedule and performance exceeds the customer’s specification.
Aaron O’Hare, KAON Project Manager Lead commented: “It was great to work with the customer on this project and we are delighted to have exceeded their expectations. For our design team, it was quite but our experienced team evaluated options before selecting the most effective solution. As this machine will be fully operational at the customer’s site within weeks, I look forward to seeing it in-situ”.
