ROBOTIC DEPALLETIZINGThe 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.
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.
Automatic removal of spacer between layers for freezing.
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.
