AUTOMATIC ROBOTIC PALLETISING
After filling the containers and placing them in boxes or trays, our solutions also take care of palletising precisely according to the specified mosaic. The automated palletising process is one of the first investments you can make to increase the efficiency and competitiveness of your company.
We design our palletising solutions to suit your needs.
Compact palletising solutions with a single robot, pneumatically-operated shovel gripper, whose strong point is the low investment and the small footprint.
Large multi-robot systems including options such as pre-layer preparation to full layer palletising, capable of taking on the most ambitious production runs.
We palletise everything you can imagine.
Boxes, sacks or trays containing almost any type of product. From food products to delicate automotive components.
We have collaborated in the automation of the end of production lines in many sectors, although without a doubt, the sector that is increasingly demanding this type of system is the food sector.
We also have our own design software called 'Mosaics' which allows us to easily generate the distribution of the boxes on the pallet.
This software is used to get an exact idea of what the complete pallet will look like, and to launch the programme to the robot so that it can execute it.
Automatic palletising of pre-cooked products
This end of line brings together the products from 6 production lines.
2 Fanuc industrial palletising robots are at the centre of an installation that also includes the automatic empty pallet dispensing system, a trolley for managing the traffic of full and empty pallets, a turntable stretch wrapper and a labeller, as well as the entire roller conveyor system that moves both the boxes and the pallets.
All of this is synchronised thanks to careful programming, which allows for extremely simple start-up, and intuitive incident management.
We have developed the most advanced collaborative palletising cell on the market by combining the most efficient Collaborative Robots, the most intuitive Programming Assistant and a modular structure that offers unprecedented freedom of configuration.

Palletising of Ice Cube Bags
We design and implement complete packaging lines in the ice cube manufacturing sector.
We use industrial robots and specific accessories for handling bags containing ice cubes, such as referencing devices that ensure perfect palletisation, and vacuum grippers that hold each bag securely, despite the humidity and low temperature.
In order to achieve the most compact cell possible, the empty pallets are fed at a lower level than the ice bag infeed conveyors.

Palletising olive oil in 3 formats
This palletising cell includes the formation of cardboard boxes, the packing of the bottles inside them and their palletising.
It also performs the banding of the larger formats, as well as the wrapping of the prepared pallets.
The Kawasaki CP180L industrial robot has various types of tools for handling the different formats in which the oil is produced:
1, 2, 3 and 5 litre bottles, as well as 3 and 5 litre metal oil cans and the boxes and trays that will contain them.

Palletising inside cold stores.
There are several alternatives for palletising frozen products: The first would be to palletise manually or automatically in a room with temperatures above zero, so that employees can do it without risk to their health.
This option poses problems in terms of the quality with which the frozen product reaches the end customer.
In this case, the video shows a 4-axis palletising robot, protected by a heated cover that allows it to work as if it were at ideal working temperatures. The incorporated hot air pump envelops it in hot air, without letting heat escape from it.
This ensures that the final product is in ideal conditions, saves energy as the product does not travel out of the warehouse and ensures the health of the plant's employees.
Robotic palletising of chocolates
The chocolates enter the cell stacked on their support trays. In order to palletise them automatically, the robot must pick up a plastic sheet and place it on top of the stack.
Once it is in place, it turns the stack over and proceeds with the palletising operation.
The entry and exit of pallets is also carried out automatically.

Palletising of paint buckets or paint pails
Our automation solutions are also successfully implemented in the sector of manufacturers of paints, varnishes and all kinds of treatments for wood, walls, façades...
In this example the system must be able to palletise several references with the same robot, so we have designed a gripper that gives versatility to the robot.
It is therefore capable of handling both "classic" buckets or pails with a circular or oval shape and cardboard boxes from two different production lines.
As the paint buckets have handles, we have installed two handle orientation systems to guarantee the same position for all the buckets.
In order to position the different references at the pick-up point, a centring system with custom-made cradles is used.
Double Arm Palletising of Cases
We have developed this innovative cell as an alternative to the usual full layer palletising systems in high production. With similar productivity, it has significant advantages:
Mechanical simplicity and smaller footprint.It does not require bulky and heavy layer preparation systems and grippers. As it does not carry so much weight, the robots can have a lower load capacity and develop a higher speed.
It is based on industrial robots capable of working tens of thousands of hours without failure, rather than on a complex set of pneumatic drives and their sensors, resulting in far greater reliability.

Compact palletising cells
Our compact cells are the most versatile option when it comes to automating the end of the production line. These are some of the reasons why they are widely used in both SMEs and large multinationals:- High production capacity.
- Minimal space occupation in the plant.
- Flexibility and modularity.
- Plug & Play installation and easy relocation.
- Maximum reliability and minimum maintenance.
- Ease of operation.
- Remote assistance system.
- Fast return on investment.

Palletising of milk briks
Large and medium-sized dairy companies automate their end-of-line with Inser Robótica...
We have robotic palletising and tray wrapping solutions that meet the needs of this demanding sector.
In the first example, we have designed a customised palletising solution based on 4 palletising robots that take the grouped boxes coming from other warehouses by overhead conveyors.
We also added devices of our own design to complete the process, such as a transport trolley for pallet traffic management, two automatic pallet dispensers, a ring stretch wrapper and a pallet rewrapper, among others.
The second example shows a simpler palletising solution with manual pallet exit and very little floor space. The assembly and commissioning of this type of compact palletising cells can be done in 1 week.
Visit our dairy section to see other examples from the sector.
Ice cube palletising
The production of ice cubes is another process in which we have a lot of experience.
Our systems allow us to automate both the demoulding of the trays where the ice is formed and the subsequent palletising of the grouped bags, ready for dispatch to the customer.
Depending on how stable these groupings are, it is sometimes necessary to use accessory systems such as confiners/referrers, which hold the bags as they are palletised.
The use of the confiners or referrers prevents the palletised product from falling outside the specified dimensions.
Visit our ice cube section for more information.
Solution for the end-of-line production of bags filled with powdered chemicals.
With an ABB palletising robot at its core, the robotic cell includes all the necessary elements to palletise the bags as accurately and reliably as possible.
It includes a custom-designed comb gripper, two sack turners, automatic de-palletisers, carton separator magazines and a full and empty pallet transport trolley.
The entire system has been tested at our facilities, prior to commissioning at the end customer.
Palletising of aerosols
The handling of this type of empty metal container requires high precision due to its instability.
We have designed and installed a large number of similar cells all over the world for major producers.
They include magnetic conveyors, pallet feeders, carton and lid magazines, as well as the infeed and outfeed conveyors required for aerosol palletising and subsequent stretch wrapping, strapping and labelling.
