The empty pallet shuttle provides the robot system with empty pallets and is located under the floor axis. This makes it particularly space saving. Due to the empty pallet shuttle, the transfer car is mainly available to the robot for transporting the full pallets. This also contributes to increasing the palletizing performance.
The needed empty pallet magazine can be positioned on each sides of the floor axis.
The use of pallet magazines and conveyor technology for pallets achieves a higher degree of automation and increases the production performance. The delay free exchange of full against empty pallets is crucial for the palletizing performance of the robot.
As soon as there are multiple pallets in the gripping area this must also be taken into account when considering the achievable palletizing performance.
