Robotic Palletizing Carousel Case Study

Business Objectives

  • Transport of finished goods (plastic bottle caps) from production to the warehouse in a centralized palletizing area
  • Automatically fill and palletize smaller cartons and transport large totes
  • Implement automatic labeling and inventory tracking
  • Reduce “Mix Ware,” or the shipping of incorrect product
  • Meet the system rate goal of 7.1 cartons per minute (cpm)
  • Reduce the number of operators needed (24 operators over 4 shifts)

The team successfully delivered the first known robotic palletizing carousel AS/RS utilizing a standard robot and carousels


Savant AGVs were converted into a mid-level AGV with 4 independent, intelligent conveyor decks


The design was able to meet the system rate goal of 7.1 cpm’s, as well as reduce the number of operators needed per shift
