Why manual palletizing is no longer good enoughYou need your products to arrive to your customers fast. You rely on your people to efficiently pack them onto pallets for shipment. You want to maximize the amount of product in the load while keeping it stable enough to prevent product damage. Yet, no matter how well you plan your manual palletizing tasks, you always face (un)expected challenges. Automating palletizing tasks is a great way to solve these challenges.
Less injuriesOne of the biggest risks associated with manual palletizing is that of injury. Workers bend, lift and twist for hours on end. Over time, these unergonomic tasks can cause strain injuries and endanger the workers’ health. When automating your palletizing tasks, you relieve workers from the heavy lifting and improve their overall well-being.
More productivityRunning a business today is a constant balancing act between taking advantage of opportunities when they arise, keeping your customers satisfied, and maintaining a happy workforce. Cobots can work for longer than human employees while maintaining the same working speed. This decreases downtime and ultimately boosts productivity. Palletizing cobots are intuitive to use and the perfect solution for turning palletizing from a bottleneck into an efficient and painless task.
Palletizing solutions are flexible and easy to integrate and typically allow for variation in choice of gripper, number of pallets and integration of an optional lifting column for extra palletizing height.
