Automatic Palletizing & Depalletizing Systems
Automatic palletizing and depalletizing systems automate the end-of-line operations of industrial sectors by automating the palletizing of cardboard blanks, boxes, trays, and packages, or by unpacking pallets into units for further processing. Systems can range from simple robotic automation to smart pallets and packaging that communicate details regarding the contents of containers to each other to ensure that palletizing is done accurately with the right products and the right type of handling for each product. Advances in machine vision also enable automation for processes involving non-standardized items, locations, and packaging and stacking patterns by intelligently adjusting robotic movements. These systems can integrate with transportation systems to do advize pre-sorting upstream to better match downstream customer deliveries.
