Here at Automatica 2022, we are excited to be showcasing the Robotiq Palletizing Solution… twice!

This new solution sets itself apart from other palletizing solutions in a number of ways. First and foremost, it is extremely easy to use – even people who have never used robots before (or even heard of cobots) can set it up quickly and easily. Additionally, with the brand new UR20 version, you can lift box sizes of up to 20 kg.

 

Our palletizing demo is the centerpoint of our booth here at Automatica. Visitors are loving seeing it in action and we’re getting great feedback. If you’re attending the show, make sure you swing by our booth and check it out for yourself!Automatica2022_Day4palletizing_2

Here is your introduction to our palletizing demo…

Introducing the Robotiq Palletizing Solution

If you are looking for a cobot palletizing solution that is easy to use and can handle a variety of different box and pallet sizes, then the Robotiq Palletizing Solution is the perfect choice.

Sure, there are other palletizing solutions here at Automatica. But frankly, we think ours is one of the easiest to use by far.

It already comes in 2 different models:

  • The PE Series – This solution has a fixed height and is well suited to the European market, where loaded pallet dimensions tend to be smaller.
  • The AX Series – This solution comes with an extra 7th axis, which makes it applicable to higher pallet sizes.

And here at Automatica, we are showing a bleeding-edge solution that we have made with our partner Universal Robots.

  • The UR20 demo – This includes a new concept gripper and it uses UR's brand new UR20 robot. They are showing it the solution at the very front of their their booth.

Next door to our booth we have the Universal Robots booth. Their big new release this year is the UR 20, a version of their collaborative robot with a 20kg payload.

In our video demo here, Robotiq's R&D Director Nicolas Lauzier walks you through the demo, explaining what makes it so special:

 

 

Why the palletizing solution is so easy to use

As with the other application solutions we are showcasing here at Automatica 2022, the real power behind our palletizing solution is the software. This is something that is not so obvious when you walk past the robot and just look at the demo moving.

We have created a fully-integrated solution that anyone can use, no programming required. You simply enter a few details (such as the size of boxes and pallet configurations) and the software works out all of the details for you.Automatica2022_Day4palletizing_5

If you haven't come to our booth yet at Automatica, well… you've missed the opportunity this time. The show is now closing up. But these videos are the next best thing!
