Designed to palletize with consistent quality and precision, FlexLink offers two options suitable for palletizing closed boxes within fast-moving consumer goods industries: a palletizer with an industrial robot, the RI20, and a collaborative robot, the RC10.
With the ability to handle payloads of up to 15kg at 12 cycles per minute, the RI20 does not have a mainframe attached to the floor, making it a mobile solution, suitable for use in multiple production lines.
Robot set-up and configuration is straightforward, thanks to the user-friendly design of the interface. Also available on a tablet, in addition to the control panel, there is no need for complicated programming or robotics training, meaning the RI20 facilitates quick and easy set-up. FlexLink also offers data collection package and a telephone helpline for remote assistance.
Two pallet loading positions enable continuous operations and an enhanced safety system creates a safe co-existence with operators. When motion is detected in the safety area the production does not stop, instead, it slows down. The movement is identified by scanners and light curtains, changing the speed at which the robot arm operates.
A collaborative robot palletizer, the RC10 handles payloads of up to 8kg at 8 boxes per minute. Without a fence or cage surrounding it, the small footprint gives flexibility in its location.
Following ISO standard TS 15066 for robots, the RC10 is designed to work alongside personnel; if an operator comes into contact with the robot arm, it will automatically stop to reduce the risk of injury.
