Rapid robots from Pacepacker. (Packaging Equipment).

Pacepacker Limited, an automatic sack packing and palletising machinery company, has announced further expansion to their product range of palletising robots in response to increased concerns over manual handling regulations.

To enable greater speed, Pacepacker has developed multiple bag handling end effectors. These units pick up more than one bag at a time before moving out over the pallet and placing each bag individually into position.

Stacking rates of up to twenty-five bags per minute have been achieved on 25kg bags. Traditionally such speeds were only possible with large high level palletisers taking one product at a time. But the robot cell not only takes up a fraction of the floor space of the high level machine, it can also handle more than one product at a time giving flexibility for the producer.
