PALLETIZING

Palletizing or palletization most often refers to the act of placing products on
a pallet for shipment or storage in logistics supply chains.

Robotic Systems

Material handling robots can automate some of the most tedious, dull, and unsafe tasks in a production line and is one of the easiest ways to add automation. Material handling robots enhance the efficiency of your production line and increase customer satisfaction by providing quality products in a timely manner.

The term material handling encompasses a wide variety of applications like case packing, palletizing, depalletizing, product handling, machine feeding and component selection and assembly.

Having installed numerous robotic systems in recent years, Icon Systems guarantees a high degree of reliability and ensures that operators, robots and tooling are completely safe all the time.

As a rule of thumb, a modern robotic arm used for palletizing can cover simultaneously up to 4 production lines for different types of packaging.

Robot grippers are the physical interface between a robot arm and the work piece and one of the most important parts of the robot. A gripper comes in direct contact with the products, so it is important to choose the right type of gripper for the specific operation to avoid any damage to the product.

There are three types of robotic grippers we use: vacuum grippers, pneumatic grippers, and servo-electric grippers. We manufacture each gripper based on which handling application is required and the type of material in use. We are able to not only help you chose the right type of gripper, but we can also customize the size and shape needed to fit your specific product needs. We can therefore provide solutions in situations where precision and reduced maintenance are prerequisites, and which cannot be fulfilled by conventional systems.

Palletizers

ICON SYSTEMS in cooperation with renowned international companies offers you low- and high-level palletizers.

Usually, high level palletizers offer high palletizing speeds (over 1.000 bags/hour), while low level palletizers offer palletizing speeds up to about 800 bags/hour at lower costs. The advantages of palletizers are high palletizing capacity and near perfect pallet shape, but without the flexibility offered by robotic systems.
