The EC-201 Robotic Palletizer has a payload capacity of 440 lbs. and a palletizing capacity of 1600 cycles per hour. The robot palletizes bags, cases, pails and other products. It also has four axes for maximum flexibility. The weight of the mechanically balanced arm can be supported by a single finger. This design allows the robot to use less energy and reduce stress on the arm joints, bearings, pivot points and floor supports. A standard touch-screen allows personnel to change palletizing programs in under 5 seconds, utilize onboard warning systems, review error occurrences and take corrective measures, monitor I/O in real time, track inventory by specific programs, compare running and powered up hours and monitor the machine in real time.
