The robotic depalletizer machine is built to perform automatic depalletizing of a wooden pallet that carries multiple layers of containers, each layer divided by a carton, and then separating the containers into a single line for further processing.Request A Quote
The pallet travels toward the depalletizer machine by the means of the input conveyor. The robot's end-of-arm tool (gripper) has multiple functions. The primary function is picking up a predetermined number of containers at once, holding, and placing them on the container feed table. Containers then move forward until they reach the end of the container feed table, where they are pushed out onto a transfer conveyor in a single line, ready for further processing. Other machines can be connected to the depalletizer to make up a complete production line. The robot gripper's secondary function is carton and pallet handling. At the end of every carton depalletizing cycle, the robot picks up the empty carton and transfers it to the partition carton accumulator. The accumulator is equipped with its own gripper which travels up and down to pick up the carton from the robot gripper and place it on the carton stack. At the end of every pallet depalletizing cycle, the robot picks up the empty pallet and transfers it to the pallet stack.
A loaded pallet travels towards the depalletizing robot on the infeed conveyor.
The gripper picks up the top layer of the containers from the pallet.
The gripper places the containers on the container feed table. The container feed table separates containers into a single line for further processing.
After a layer of containers is depalletized, the gripper picks up the carton that separates container layers. The gripper transfers the carton to the carton accumulator.
After the whole pallet is depalletized, the gripper picks up the pallet and transfers it to the pallet stack.
KUKA robots are versatile - suitable for a variety of different applications. These are robots with high payload and long reach, certified for North American standards. The robots are equipped with safety elements, which prevent the robot from behaving unexpectedly or dangerously during a malfunction.
The heavy-duty load dispersing frames for robot mounting are made in-house. These frames are designed according to application, allowing integration in various manufacturing plants, without any modifications to the existing concrete surface.
The robot's end-of-arm tool is customized to every customer's specific needs. The gripper can handle a variety of product packaging. Additionally, it can handle pallets and cartons.
The automatic container feed table is designed to hold and move multiple containers at once. The containers are placed on one end of the feed table and are then automatically moved forward. This type of machine is suitable for a variety of containers and can be an addition to almost any production line. The container feed table is a solution to speed up and streamline the container feeding process.
The robot's gripper can handle the empty pallets after the depalletizing cycle is finished. The gripper is equipped with suction cups which allow it to grip the pallet and transfer it to the specially designated area, where the pallets are stacked.
The robot's gripper can also handle the empty cartons, which separate container layers. The gripper is equipped with suction cups which allow it to grip the carton and transfer it to the carton accumulator. The carton accumulator automatically picks up the carton from the gripper and brings it down onto the carton stack.
Intuitive touch-screen HMI provides simple control over the machine and enables choosing predefined products or setting parameters for the sleeving process.
The machine is equipped with guards, security door locks, and light curtains to ensure operating personnel's safety in hazard areas such as infeed/outfeed.
