High-efficiency Full Layer Robotic Palletizing System

Business Objectives

  • Palletizing multiple product lines with the same robot
  • Need to palletize in a very small footprint
  • Robot must palletize very heavy layer weights
  • End of Arm Tool must accomodate wide or narrow side leading cases
  • System must achieve a consistent rate of 40 cases per minute in a very small footprint

McCormick Improves Efficiency with a Full Layer Robotic Palletizer

McCormick turned to Bastian Solutions to help automate and improve their palletizing process. After analyzing McCormick’s needs, we recommended a full layer robotic palletizing system to reduce operational costs and improve efficiency.
