KUKA Robotics Corp., a manufacturer of industrial robots, offers its KR 500 570-2 PA palletizing system. The KR 500 570-2 PA is a heavy-duty robot that can handle payloads of up to 1,250 pounds and features three different palletizing algorithms for mixed and unmixed palletizing. This space-saving and costeffective system can be tooled with a KUKA servo-controlled layer gripper that can remove entire layers from a pallet of virtually any material. The servo layer gripper motors are synchronized with the KR 500 570-2 PA to provide a time-saving solution for palletizing when mixing different product layers on the same pallet.
The unit's user-friendly interface can communicate directly to a warehouse management system and is suitable for building rainbow or starter pallets in distribution centers or feeding a layer descrambler for a downstream case buffer. This same system can also be integrated to perform slip-sheet handling and empty pallet handling.
