Columbia Machine offers the new FL2000-R palletizer, a unit that leverages leading technologies from Rockwell Automation, Agile Planet, and Motoman. This new machine features the ControlLogix PLC, which manages the functions of the robot arm and the basic machine control instead of having two independent control technologies. This not only provides increased reliability and pattern forming capability, but also allows plant personnel to easily understand and maintain the system. Customers will work with familiar PLC controls and will no longer have to learn and work with the robotic arm's proprietary software.
This hybrid palletizer technology, known as R-Factor, marries this new technology—robotic capability and simple conventional palletizer designs—into a powerful package in the FL2000-R. R-Factor is available with any of Columbia Machine's floor-level or high-level palletizers.
