A Robot Palletizer was recently commissioned for a seed grower and seed supplier based in Western Australia. Supplied by Accuweigh/Budpak’s Perth branch, the Robot Palletizer was required to overcome staff shortages caused by the current mining boom in Western Australia.

The Japanese made Fuji-Ace Robot Palletizer was configured for twin cell operation to automatically transfer bags onto pallets positioned either side of the Palletizer base. When loading of the first pallet is completed, the bags are then stacked onto the alternate pallet to allow a forklift to remove the completed pallet without interference to the ongoing Palletizing operation.

The Fuji-Ace EC-101 Robot Palletizer is highly energy efficient using servo motors and was supplied with a pneumatically operated bag gripper assembly. With a Palletizing capacity of up to 1,200 cycles per hour, the EC-101 Palletizer is very cost effective and features ultra-quiet operation with improved efficiencies and maximum flexibility.

Other supplied components of the Robot Palletizing system included:

• Bag pickup conveyor

• Pallet location guides

• Safety fencing

• Control system

• Additional light curtains

• Bag kicker and driven bag flattener
