Gain efficiency with robotic scrap metal palletizing

Palletizing of scrap metal bales poses many challenges to plant operations due to the variability in bale dimensions, the weight of bales, and the inherent safety issues that come with handling bales. Robotic scrap metal palletizers provide increased safety while meeting or exceeding your system requirements.

How a Robotic Scrap Metal Palletizer works:

Bales are conveyed into the system via heavy duty product conveyor. The palletizing robot uses a 5th axis on the end of arm tool and feedback information to clamp and measure each bale while the controls automatically calculate pallet dimensions as the pallet is being built.

With an outstanding history of integrating robotic scrap metal palletizers, Bastian Robotics has the experience to provide you with the most effective bale palletizing solution for your operation.
