Adaptec provided a turnkey solution, removing the existing conveyor, pallet dispenser, and palletizer, while designing a system that custom fit a specific footprint within their facility. A new dispenser, pallet conveyor, palletizing robot, and wrapper with a slip sheet dispenser were installed.
The operator selects the product that is running on the HMI, which then communicates with the overhead conveyance. A pneumatic cylinder raises or lowers to allow product to infeed from one of the three conveyor lines. As product moves to the pick conveyor, pallets are dispensed, queued, and staged underneath the robot base. Product is detected on the pick conveyor, signaling the robot to pick and place the product on the pallet.
