Robotic automation has become the go-to solution for gaining efficiency, speed and addressing the ongoing labor shortage within the packaging industry. Whether it’s opening, forming, packing, loading, picking, placing, sealing, or palletizing, robotics are everywhere within the industry.
Adding automation to your palletizing operations brings many advantages to your end-of-line operations. Robotic palletizing greatly increases a company’s packaging speed, while also providing newfound flexibility in being able to create both preconfigured-standard and customer-specific pack patterns.
It also helps from a labor standpoint. Trying to hire and retain staff to manually stack pallets all day is extremely difficult. Robotics excel in accomplishing repetitive tasks, and palletizing is the very definition of repetitive. Robots don’t call in sick; they reliably operate around the clock. By integrating robotics into your palletizing operations, you can relocate those employees into areas of your company where they can be more valuable. A more motivated, enthusiastic work staff leads to less turnover – it’s really a win-win situation for all involved.
A well-designed robotic palletizer can be operated by just one person in a compact space and offers great opportunities to maximize efficiencies of an end-of-line system. These are just some of the advantages of automating your palletizing operations.
