Robot technology is a key element of the Schaefer Case Picking (SCP) system. The robots are utilized for layered depalletizing. The combination of three proven gripper technologies (vacuum multi-grip, vacuum-chamber, and mechanical clamping) guarantees that the depalletizing process is highly dynamic and functions reliably while also handling the product gently. Furthermore, they are also utilized for palletizing mixed pallets when supplying branches, for example.
SSI SCHAEFER offers a broad portfolio of depalletizing and palletizing robotics systems. These can be precisely tailored to the industry’s specific requirements.
Retail: Layered palletizing (rainbow palletizing)
Beverage: Carton palletizing, tower picking
Retail, Automotive, 3PL: Container palletizing
Automotive: Container (KLT) depalletizing
The parameters of all palletizing and depalletizing tasks can be precisely configured to your individual requirements. Articulated arm and portal robots can be utilized, depending on the warehouse organization.
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.
Optimizing 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.
