Vacuum Technology for Processes in the End of Line Palletizing Sector

During End of Line Palletizing (EOLP), packed products are placed on pallets and prepared for shipping. These items are usually cardboard boxes, beverages, cans and shrink-wrapped workpieces. The workpieces can be set on the pallets individually, in rows or in entire layers.

Vacuum technology from Schmalz can implement these processes manually or automatically. The deciding factors in efficient workflows are reliable operation for many hours at a time and the adaptability of the grippers, as well as positioning accuracy for palletizing.

Requirements for the End-of-Line-Process

Palletizing and depalletizing
Entire product layers can be moved automatically with a layer gripping system SPZ or the area gripping systems FXC and FMP. The gripping system doesn’t have to be completely covered with products. The gripping system can be adapted to the individual requirements of the process. In addition, the area gripping systems are so flexible that they can move different products without requiring a gripper change.

Vacuum lifting devices make manual processes easier. The operator is freed of the weight of the workpiece, providing ergonomic, healthy working conditions.
