Palletizing is one of the final steps in preparing your product for shipment. Doing this manually can be back-breaking work, and poorly stacked finished pallets can result in damage before your product even arrives at its destination.
Depending on the product being stacked on the pallet, the orientation of that product on the pallet is very important. This orientation, or stacking pattern, can enhance stability of the completed pallet, increase stacking strength, prevent damage, and maintain identification labels that must be in plain sight. CRG Automation specializes in helping companies convert manual palletizing practices to automatic palletizing. We have decades of experience working with materials ranging from fragile light bulbs to heavy manufactured goods.
In recent years, automatic palletizing has resolved many of the issues that once required manual work. This automated practice typically falls into one of three categories: robotic palletizing, low-level layer palletizing, and high-level layer palletizing. CRG Automation has extensive expertise in all three. Depending on speed and space, an automatic pallet dispenser, slip-sheet dispenser or tier-sheet dispenser can be integrated into the palletizing process.
CRG Automation can help you select the correct palletizing solution for your application and integrate it successfully into your overall packaging system, as robotic palletizers are a key piece of equipment that must communicate correctly with your conveying system. CRG Automation works with all major brands, including Kawasaki. CRG can supply the upstream case conveyor needed, orient/collate the product for the optimum product pick arrangement, establish the best pallet-stacking pattern, design the correct EOAT (end of arm tool), and supply other ancillary equipment.
