Flexible and precise operation, fast and efficient operation, high stability, high work efficiency, and greatly saving labor are the outstanding characteristics and advantages of palletizing robots in the palletizing industry. Nowadays, the application of palletizing robots in various industries is becoming increasingly widespread, and they are essential mechanical equipment for modern and automated production lines.
The palletizing robot can complete three-dimensional spatial movement movements such as heavy object grabbing, handling, flipping, docking, and fine adjusting angles, providing an ideal handling and assembly tool for material loading and unloading and production component assembly. Its working principle is:
A layer of workpieces on a flat plate that meets the requirements of the pallet. The flat plate and workpieces move forward until the pallet is perpendicular to the surface. The upper stopper rod descends, and the other three positioning stopper rods start clamping. At this time, the flat plate resets. Each workpiece descends to the pallet plane, with a distance of 10mm between the pallet plane and the bottom surface of the flat plate. The pallet descends by one workpiece height. Repeat the above steps until the stacking of pallets meets the set requirements. The palletizing robot is equipped with a specially designed multifunctional gripper, which can use vacuum suction cups to firmly grip and transport the packaging box regardless of its size or weight.
The loading and unloading stacking manipulator not only reduces the labor intensity and provides safe material handling, but also provides system solutions for special environments such as explosion-proof workshops and hazardous areas where personnel cannot enter. With various non-standard fixtures, the robotic arm can lift various shapes of workpieces, achieving a zero gravity floating state of the load. The operator can easily lift, move, rotate, roll forward, and flip the load. And quickly and accurately place the load in a pre-set position, allowing one person to easily operate items that could only be moved by a few people.
The idea of a palletizing robot being able to build an efficient and energy-saving fully automatic block forming machine production line within a small footprint has become a reality.
Simple structure with few components. Therefore, the failure rate of components is low, their performance is reliable, their maintenance and repair are simple, and they require fewer inventory components.
Small footprint. It is beneficial for the layout of the production line in the customer's factory and allows for a larger warehouse area. Stacking robots can be set up in narrow spaces for effective use.
Strong applicability. When the size, volume, shape, and overall dimensions of the customer's product change, only slight modifications need to be made on the touch screen, which will not affect the normal production of the customer. The modification of mechanical palletizing machines is quite troublesome and even impossible to achieve.
Low energy consumption. Usually, the power of a mechanical palletizing machine is around 26KW, while the power of a palletizing robot is around 5KW. Greatly reducing customer operating costs.
All controls can be operated on the control cabinet screen, and the operation is very simple.
Simply locate the starting point and placement point, and the teaching method is simple and easy to understand.
With the continuous development of industry and the gradual maturity of technology, the application of palletizing robots will become more widespread and play a more important role in various industries in the future.
