Palletizing robots for high-performance applications

Products of the chemical and petrochemical industry are palletized  at high speed. The TRAPO AG robot achieves a maximum performance of 1200 bags per hour when palletizing them in different sizes and weights. Individual gripper systems ensure stable, secure layers and perfect stacks as the basis for intermodal transport.

Automated: Picking and packing ceramic filters

Whereas ceramic filters were previously palletized in cartons by hand due to the high risk of breakage, this task is now performed by three picker lines. During feeding, cameras scan the position and orientation. Based on this information, pickers pick up the ceramic filters via a suction pad, transfer them to a nonwoven blank and place them there. The full stacks from all lines are fed to the fully automatic packaging system via a transfer carriage.

Top performance for packing in cartons

With the TRAPO Packing System (TPS series), TRAPO is a pioneer in using innovative high-performance kinematics for the further packing of primary packaging. In the variant with a large radius of action, the picker has a rotationally symmetrical working area thanks to its parallel kinematic design and can reach far behind itself.

Intermodal Transport: Pallet Securing with Wrapper

Petrochemical products, fertilizers and more: Palletized bags of chemical or petrochemical products are secured fully automatically by the TRAPO Stretch Wrapper (TSW series). In the process, the entire pallet is wrapped with film at high speed – this is how manufacturers ensure the required transport security.

TRAPO competence in the warehouse

At the high-bay warehouse, one or more TRAPO Warehouse Shuttle goods (TWS series) take over goods as required. The TWS accelerates at 1.5 m/s² and completes the cycle of extending, gripping and retracting in a maximum of three seconds. The racking system is modular and flexibly expandable. Consequently, performance can be significantly increased at any time with additional TWS and additive lifting devices.

Eliminating forklift traffic: autonomous loading and unloading

The TRAPO Loading System (TLS 3600) is a driverless, compact transport system with a lifting unit that can load three pallets simultaneously into a truck or, for intermodal transport, into an overseas container. In the process, it corrects its position automatically. This continuous loading process saves time and distance and allows a 13-meter trailer to be loaded with 33 pallets in about 15 minutes. Of course, this process can also be run through in reverse order for unloading trucks.
