Depalletizing and palletizing

Depalletising and palletising robots handle goods flexibly and efficiently

Statutory regulations regarding picking work stations are becoming more and more stringent, increasing the demand for robot-supported solutions.

Fully automatic systems for palletising and depalletising represent an economically advantageous solution for implementing a fully automated process chain. At the same time, they also ensure consistent performance regardless of external influences. You benefit from perfectly coordinated components and constant performance. From load carriers to conveyor systems and fully automated warehouses,
SSI SCHAEFER offers you economical intralogistics solutions from a single source.

The automated palletising and depalletising solutions from SSI SCHAEFER are highly dynamic and functionally safe, regardless of size and weight of products or environmental conditions.


Robot technology is a key element of the Schaefer Case Picking (SCP) system. The robots are utilised for layered depalletising. The combination of three proven gripper technologies (vacuum multi-grip, vacuum-chamber, and mechanical clamping) guarantees that the depalletising process is highly dynamic and functions reliably while also handling the product gently. Furthermore, they are also utilized for palletising mixed pallets when supplying branches, for example.

SSI SCHAEFER offers a broad portfolio of depalletising and palletising robotics systems. These can be precisely tailored to the industry’s specific requirements.

Retail: Layered palletising (rainbow palletizing)

Beverage: Carton palletising, tower picking

Retail, Automotive, 3PL: Container palletising

Automotive: Container (KLT) depalletising  

The parameters of all palletising and depalletising tasks can be precisely configured to your individual requirements. Articulated arm and portal robots can be utilized, depending on the warehouse organisation.

In addition, the automated processes guarantee that robotics can be integrated into the system without any problems.

However, full automation does not represent the optimum solution for every user. That is why we also offer solutions for scalable automation and successive mechanization. The use of technology and automation needs to demonstrate sound judgment. For this reason, we also provides users in this field with a comprehensive range of highly flexible, ergonomic, and innovative partial automation solutions and work stations.

Optimising the human-machine interface in areas, in which the article ranges or processes make human interaction essential, requires an expert analysis of all procedures and conditions. Work processes and working environments need to be flexibly adapted to employees themselves. Furthermore, this approach can also contribute to reducing physical strain.
