Itho Daalderop, the manufacturer of among other things boilers in Tiel, has several cobots working alongside industrial robots. One of these cobots palletizes 450 boilers per day, each weighing 9 kg. To reach the desired height, a UR10 is placed on a Liftkit to increase the vertical range of the robot arm. The saving is 0.5 / 1 FTE, but the fact that lower back pain is now prevented for the employees who palletized before the arrival of the cobot, is the actual gain.
Palletizing with a cobot
When you package and ship products, you want them to always be correctly counted and packaged to the highest standards. A cobot can help you with this.
In peak periods, your cobot can work 24 hours a day, so you don’t have to stop production. It can be deployed as often as necessary and reprogrammed for new tasks and applications.
Palletizing boxes and other materials
Packaging and palletizing can be simpler, faster and more efficient with a cobot. By automating the packaging and palletizing of your products, you will ease the work of your employees. No more heavy lifting and repetitive work for them. The cobot reduces rising costs of new product packaging and shortened product life cycles because it can be rapidly deployed for new tasks or products.
The cobot’s intuitive, easy-to-program interface makes the robot arm perfect for small production batches and repetitive tasks. If your workflow changes, you can quickly deploy the cobot somewhere else in your company. It can easily be reprogrammed for a new task and it is light. This makes it easy to use in another location within your packaging or palletising line, especially in combination with our PalletBooster2000. And with a quick-change system, you can quickly put another gripper or tool on the robot arm.
The cobot can be used in most packaging and palletizing applications. The space-saving cobot can also be used with various machines.
