Palletizing Systems

RNA are the sole agents in the UK & Ireland for the RoboMat range of tray handling systems. RoboMat palletizing and tray loading systems are used throughout industry by many leading companies. The systems offer incomparable ease of use, compact size, durability, reliability and flexibility to suit any of your applications especially in medical or assembly technology. The systems are built using a standard chassis and tooled to suit your component and tray dimensions.

Palletizing System PSL 1

Palletizing System PSL 1

A very robust and proven standard palletizing system for pallets up to 400 x 600 mm. It is characterized by its ease of use with a touch screen, fast pallet changes and robust design. For the loading or removal, this palletizer can easily be equipped with an automatic axis with gripper(s).

Palletizing System PSL 1 – WE

Palletizing System PSL 1 – WE

With this palletizer, heavy parts for windshield wiper motors are fed into an assembly line. To increase the storage period, the customer’s own pallet transport carts were used. In this way, additional loading processes could be avoided. The rapid Y-axis with single gripper removes the parts with a cycle time of 3 seconds and transfers the parts to the next assembly line.

Palletizing system PSS

Palletizing system PSS

The standardized universal palletizing system PSS consists of a stacking and unstacking unit for pallets, a transport system for pallets, as well as a pallet centering unit. This allows implementation of a very cost effective unloading and loading process for pallets. The components are also available individually for equipment manufacturers. For loading or unloading, the horizontal axis can be fitted to a palletizer with one or more grippers. The pallet changer is integrated so that no interruption occurs in the separation of parts.

Storage system FSM

Storage system FSM

The Storage systems are developed in order to store full pallets and thereby increase the fuffered amount for the next process step.These are characterized by a compact design and, therefore, a high storage capacity on a small surface area. Due to the special construction method, the storage can be managed in LIFO (Last In / First Out), FIFO (First In / First Out) different process. The storage system can be equipped with a handling system.

RoboMat designs are backed by RNA’s decades of material handling engineering and machine building experience, including robotic solutions, focusing on providing the customers with the best and most cost-effective palletizing solution.

Pallatizing and tray loading offers many advantages:

  • Parts remain orientated
  • Delicate parts can be handled without being damaged
  • Magnetic component parts and parts for adhesive applications can be handled
  • Use of special trays allows component parts to be washed or otherwise processed
  • Component parts in trays can be stacked, buffered and stored
Applications
Application 1: Palletizing System PSL1
Project: Palletizer for air conditioner parts
Industry: Automotive
Location: Germany
This palletizer introduces plastic cover plates for air conditioners into an inspection module. The position of the pallet (2 layers are possible) will be automatically detected by the system, and, if required, the cover plate is rotated 180 degrees to the test position by the integrated gripper swivel module.The part-specific centering gripper guarantees trouble-free insertion of the cover plate into the test fixture.
Application 2: Palletizing System PSL1 – WE
Project: Palletizer for windshield wiper motor parts
Industry: Automotive
Location:     Germany
With this palletizer, heavy parts for windshield wiper motors are fed into an assembly line. To increase the storage period, the customer’s own pallet transport carts were used. In this way, additional loading processes could be avoided.The rapid Y-axis with single gripper removes the parts with a cycle time of 3 seconds and transfers the parts to the next assembly line.
Application 3: Palletizing System PSS 2 for insulin syringes
Project: Palletizer for insulin syringes
Industry: Medical Technology
Location: Germany
This palletizer feeds individual parts from pallets to an assembly machine. With a cycle time from 1.2 seconds and, depending on the components, between two and four parts are taken from the pallet and positioned on the timed belt. The accuracy of the transfer from the timed belt of 0.05 mm allows for very minimal tolerance.The gripping system of the unloading axis is equipped with four grippers from ROBO • MAT.

The palletizer for the finished parts was designed so that the feeding and discharge of the pallets both occur on the same side.

The gripper performs an additional 90 degree rotation when loading the pallets.

Application 4: Palletizing System PSS 2 for inhalers
Project: Palletizer for inhalers
Industry: Medical Technology
Location: Germany
Depending on the application, gripping systems are used with a high number of identical individual grippers. In this case, there is a bank of 9 grippers which removes the parts from a puck handling system and places them in a pallet. Gaps from earlier assembly systems can be filled in this process.Customized grippers are used for flexible parts that do not have a specific design. These grip the parts very gently and, at the same time, make sure that the components are reliably placed in the cavities of the pallets.
Application 5: Storage system for FSM Cleanroom
Project:          Storage module for medical cleanroom products
Industry: Medical Technology
Location: Germany
The FSM is responsible for automatically storing difficult-to-stack parts from a production line.The FSM is a storage module, which has removable storage carts with several levels and an integrated assembly platform. A storage cart is pushed into the empty FSM, and raised until the first level of the production line is reached. The pallet carrier on this level is pushed onto the assembly platform where the medical products are gently moved to the pallets with a servo handler. The manipulator is also equipped with a servo drive, so that every storage space can be precisely filled on request. If the pallet is full, the pallet carrier is retracted fully automatically, the storage cart is positioned on the next level, and the cycle starts over.

If the entire storage cart is full, it is removed and an empty cart can be pushed into the FSM.
