Introducing a Robotic Palletizer Solution at PackEx 2022
Premier Tech is excited to take part in the upcoming trade show PackEx in September 2022 and will be unveiling the robotic palletizer at the event. Talking about the company’s latest offering, Yogesh Malani, managing director, Premier Tech Systems & Automation India says, “The RPL SERIES robotic palletizers are the most efficient robotic cells for virtually any palletizing needs. We have combined our innovative engineering and control capabilities with our leading-edge bag preparation and pallet handling technology to offer the best solution for a diverse range of palletizing applications.”
He added that the in-house manufactured gripper allows the RPL SERIES to satisfy the many different palletization requirements of modern packaging installations. The robots can palletize up to 1,800 bags per hour in multi-pick-up configurations.
“Keeping in mind our vision of providing a strong local presence, the localization of this equipment would enhance our capabilities to serve our customers better. The goal is to ensure that the said localization has direct benefits for our customers in terms of lower lead time for equipment and service,” says Malani.
Elaborating the features of the RPL series robotic palletizers, he says, “The heavy-duty robotic cell can simultaneously gather bags, bales, or containers from many different incoming product lines. It can also be configured to fit in confined spaces to palletize incoming products. The system is characterized by its wide flexibility of use and low maintenance requirements.” Its main benefits include
Versatility- Fully customizable equipment to fit unique needs. Can run many types of different products.
Reliability- Has been through many improvements and development over the years. Tested and approved by the market.
Usability- Ease of configuration and maneuverability. From bags to boxes, the operator will not notice any waste of time.
He informed that the robotic palletizer is compatible with all the common standard industrial pallets and can handle boxes, bundles, cases, cans, drums, trays, bags, and bales, among others. All the equipment is PLC controlled with user-friendly human-machine interfaces.
