The Columbia/Okura miniPAL+ collaborative solution utilizes a Universal Robot UR20 cobot arm that provides a 44-lb lifting capacity and a load height of 80 in. The palletizer enables handling heavy payloads and has flexible tooling that allow for multi-pick options. The design features a 10- x 11-ft footprint and Rocketfarm intuitive pattern-building software for ease of use.
The miniPAL+ safety features include area scanners and radar, both of which monitor the palletizing cell and slow the robot to collaborative speeds, should a person enter. Additionally, it includes guarding to create a physical barrier, while also optimizing its footprint.
The dual pallet building locations allow for reduced downtime when one pallet load is completed and needs to be removed from the cell. The system uses 110 VAC, which is achieved through a standard power outlet.
“This new palletizer was designed specifically to improve efficiency, safety, and productivity in businesses of all sizes,” says Columbia/Okura Director of Sales Michael Stuyvesant. “It is a welcome addition to the Columbia/Okura lineup of innovative end-of-line automation solutions.”
