Onboard robot palletizing

The 3 onboard robot palletizing and sorting robots has an adjustable handling to maximize the processing flow, and can be changed after the product type and production flow.
Using 3 palletizing robots it creates an overlapping effect between the robots production and ensures uninterrupted production, even in the event of a malfunction in one of the robots.

This unique processing line constellation ensures a flexible and efficient factory solution.
