STRAFFORD, MO – EnSight Solutions introduced an innovative new fenceless palletizing robotic system at the 2021 Process Expo in Chicago.
Most palletizing systems rely on a cage or fenced-in area to keep workers safe while the robot is stacking boxes on a pallet. The EnSight system utilizes area scanners to slow down and stop the robot if someone or something enters a designated safe zone around the robot. This technology is beneficial for companies who want to install an automated palletizing system in a smaller footprint while keeping employees safe.
The system was showcased as part of a demo production line at the Process Expo. Attendees who had the opportunity to see it in action expressed excitement about the efficiency opportunities the system offers.
The robot EnSight used in the system is a Stäubli tx2-160 with safety measures programmed in. The robot (shown above) can lift up to 85 pounds. It can be programmed to load two pallets at once, even with different box sizes on each pallet. When picking up multiple boxes, it can run up to 20 boxes a minute.
