White Paper: Is now the time to consider a robot palletizer?
As small startup manufacturing businesses grow and increase production, they will inevitably look for ways to improve their operation. Physical labor has advantages of flexibility, human insight, and a relatively low up-front cost. Mechanical automation also has advantages – ergonomics, repeatability, and stamina to name a few. Each business must weigh the trade-offs between manual and automatic operations.
Many core industries: mineral, food, chemical, petfood, feed, seed, agriculture, and others use bags or sacks as a means of storing and transporting their products. Most operations start out stacking bags manually and then eventually end up with some form of automatic palletizing. When does a company make this shift to automation? What must be considered before making this change? This paper attempts to discuss these questions in light of the recent boom in robotic palletizing.
