Automated tray palletising can sometimes prove a challenge as they are not as simple to pick and place as boxes and bags and a specialist gripper will need to be used.
An underneath gripper head is usually used for tray palletising. The underneath gripper has tines that slides underneath the tray, and an arm that goes across the top of the tray and clamps down onto the tray to hold it in place. Once the tray has been placed in the desired location the top clamp is released and the tray is pushed off the gripper tines. The underneath gripper also has an integrated vacuum gripper that is used to pick and place pallets onto the conveyor, and also to pick and place slip sheets onto the pallet.
Stack patterns are automatically optimised in the software which enables you to quickly select the best stack patterns to get the most on your pallets without having to spend a lot of time planning.
The GA15 palletising series also has easy programming software that enables your factory floor staff to re-program the robot for palletising different tray sizes within minutes.
Palletising speeds are optimised to suit your process and depending on the speeds you need to achieve, a standard pick and place method may be used, or for higher speed applications, a layer forming process will be used.
Custom modules can also be added to the GA15 palletising series such as; pallet stretch wrapping, labelling, etc. More information on the GA15 palletiser series is available on the links below.

Payback is often less than 1 year due to labour saving, production increase, reduced HR.
Typically +40% due to: no holidays or breaks, forced takt time, longer working hours, faster speeds etc.
H&S claims reduced to zero as all manual handing is now done by the robotic palletiser.
