    Compact Robotic Palletizers Provide Answers to Workplace Labor Concerns

    Kaufman Engineered Systems has designed two new standard offerings in their KPal Compact Group of palletizing systems in response to customer feedback and new interest in initiating automation since the start of the COVID pandemic. It has become a challenge for manufacturers to find and keep enough labor to fill the open positions needed. Time and time again we hear from our customers how difficult it is to find staff, have staff report on time or even report at all.

    The goals of these new standard offerings are: mobility, operator friendly controls, convenient pallet pattern creation, minimal footprint, competitive price offering, and reduced lead time.

    The KPal CV is a compact robotic palletizer designed using a more conventional design approach. Kaufman Engineered Systems designed this compact palletizer utilizing a FANUC M20iD / 25. The M20iD is a six-axis robot with a maximum wrist payload of 25kg or as designed, the system can support a maximum case weight of 25lbs. This robotic compact palletizer comes standard with finger safe Lexan fence panels to protect the robot operating space. Additionally, for safety, the palletizing cell is supported by FANUC DCS software which monitors and limits the operating space for the robot. Lockable main disconnect, lockable air dump, and a trapped key locking gate switch is supported by a category 3 architecture that lends to the safety of this system. The palletizer is designed to handle a 40”W x 48”L pallets as a standard. Larger sizes are available for review upon request. The end of arm tool is designed with a vacuum gripper as a base but other tools can be considered based on application. The system is supported by a fully welded support base with fork pockets for easy relocation. A zoned TGW infeed conveyor is used to bring in and control cases to the pick zone. KES rates this Palletizer for a maximum of 20 cpm using a single case pick and has designed the maximum case size at 20” x 20” x 15” with a max case weight of 25lbs. Having an overall footprint of 7.5W’ x 10’L the system takes up a minimal amount of space.
