The automatic depalletizing using industrial robots is the most intelligent solution in most cases.
It offers many advantages over the old cartesian systems, but these are the most obvious.

1.- Flexibility.
A programmable robot is able to depalletize a wide variety of box sizes and anti-slip cardboard using the same tool, but if necessary, you can opt for an automatic gripper changer that extends its functionality.
2.- Maintenance and service life.
Cartesian systems are composed of linear axis and complex elements such as gears, pneumatic cylinders which maintenance is much more complicated than the one of an industrial robot.
The robots that we integrate are always top brands whose reliability is enormously superior to cartesian depalletizing systems since they are machines produced in series and globally tested.

We have carried out depalletizing projects of multiproduct boxes and trays, as well as the depalletizing of different metallic containers in beginning lines in the food sector.

Depalletising, extraction and labelling of cheeses.

Once the cheeses have reached the required stage of maturity, they are removed from the stackable trays and placed on a conveyor to be labelled, before being sent to the consumer.
For this task, we use a Fanuc robot equipped with a claw capable of handling the full trays, removing all the cheeses at the same time and placing them in a row on a conveyor.
We have also designed and manufactured the machine that performs the labelling for each cheese.

Automatic removal of spacer between layers for freezing.

Automatic solution that allows the removal of spacers that facilitate efficient freezing of products. In order to properly freeze the food contained in the cartons, cold air needs to flow properly between each layer of cartons.
Our solution includes 3 industrial robots that remove each layer of cartons and each separator to achieve a complete pallet free of plastic spacers. A cardboard separator is also placed between layers, or only on the first layer of the pallet.
To improve its stability, the entire pallet is wrapped and labelled with the required traceability data.

Depalletising plastic crates with returnable bottles.

Our automatic depalletising solution is based on a 3D artificial vision camera capable of locating the configuration and dimensions of each pallet. It sends this information to an industrial robot equipped with a gripper that picks up the complete layer and then releases the boxes onto a conveyor system that finally manages to send all the boxes on the pallet in a single row. Our 3D vision system provides great reliability to the process, guaranteeing the correct capture of each layer.

In the event that the boxes are damaged or there are foreign elements inside them, the process is stopped, notifying the system operator of the reason for the stop.

Automation for the depalletising of canned glass containers.

This robotic cell performs 3 different functions.
- It depalletises the glass jars coming from the autoclave into stainless steel cages and leaves them in the quality inspection line.
- It takes the cans coming from the inspection line and places them on pallets, adding cardboard separator between each layer.
- Depalletises the cans that had been inspected and stored and leaves them on the final labelling line.
Once labelled and packed, another robotic cell installed by us performs the final palletising using a smaller robot and a comb gripper.

Multi-format carton depalletising cell.

Automatic depalletising is also possible when the pallet contains cardboard boxes of different sizes.
In this case, the products inside the cartons have a weight that could cause the cartons to collapse.
For this reason, the "comb" type gripper is the most suitable, as it also holds the box from below, preventing the product from falling out.
The artificial vision system identifies the type and type of box, its dimensions and location in space, in order to proceed to its automatic unloading.

Depalletising cell for plastic trays.

This company automatically manages the service of orders from its product catalogue, so it needs a system capable of depalletising trays of different products that will make up the order of a specific distributor.
Our robotic installation is responsible for managing the entire pallet transit from the warehouse where the single-product pallets are located, as well as the exit to the transport that will take them to the final destination.
The gripper used allows tray depalletising to be carried out quickly and reliably, holding the trays by means of pneumatic drives.
It is completed with our automatic empty pallet stacking system that stores empty pallets and supplies them when necessary.

Cell for depalletising cans filled with meat.

The cans to be handled come from an autoclave, where they have been processed to maximise the preservation of the meat inside.
They are contained within a metal basket and there is a perforated plastic sheet separating each layer of cans.
A heavy-duty robot equipped with a magnetic gripper takes care of the automated removal of both the meat cans and the aforementioned plastic sheeting.
The meat cans are depalletised on a modular belt conveyor and then distributed onto multiple conveyors where the products are conveyed in rows to the labelling and packaging area.

Automation of the depalletising of PET cans.

This solution is the head of the production line in this vinegar producer.
Our system takes care of the dosing of the plastic containers which will be filled immediately afterwards.
A robot with high reach and loading capacity takes each cardboard tray full of cans and palletises it onto the can unloading area.
An in-house designed device picks up rows of cans and gently places them on the conveyor that will take them to the filling, capping and labelling area.

Example of robotic automation for the depalletising of empty cans.

This is the opposite process to the one carried out in the can factories.
In this case, the depalletising of the empty metal containers is carried out in the company that processes the food with which they are to be filled.
The proposed solution consists of two chain conveyors for the infeed of full pallets, two magazines for frames, cartons and pallets, and several conveyors that are responsible for unpacking the layer of cans into a single row of cans.
Handling the complete layers of cans, as well as the frames, cartons and pallets, is a powerful 4-axis robot equipped with a gripper developed specifically for this type of process.
The complete design of the cell is carried out by the mechanical and electrical design department of Inser Robótica.
