Designed to work alongside humans, the MGS collaborative robotic palletizer requires no safety fence. It is anchored by a Fanuc CR-35ia collaborative robot that stops if it comes into contact with an operator; the operator presses a button to reposition the robot before restarting the program to begin where it left off. Capable of handling cases weighing up to 77 lb. at speeds up to 6 cases/min., the palletizer can be fitted with a variety of end effectors to handle a range of case sizes and styles.
