Case study: Robot palletiser stacks potting mix bags

Supplier: AccuPak
11 February, 2010

Bud-Pak / Accuweigh installed Fuji-Ace's powerful learning robotic palletiser into Veroom Industrie's plant at Kingsholme in QLD.

The Fuji-Ace EC-201 was chosen to allow easy re-programming for constantly changing bags sizes and capacities without needing the services of a programming technician to visit site. The hand held programming tool allows for easy fine tuning adjustments to be made.

Filled bags from two different bagging systems are transferred to pick-up conveyors mounted either side of the palletising robot. The robot stacks bags from each line onto pallets located on either side of the robot.

The control system allows a completed pallet on one side to be removed by fork truck while the robot continues stacking the pallet on the other side, which allows continuous operation.

This Bud-Pak / Accuweigh commissioned robot palletising system allows up to 1100 x 20, 25 & 35kg bags of potting mix to be palletised per hour.
