New compact FANUC Palletiser solves space restriction dilemma

Directly targeting manufacturers with restricted space issues, automation specialist Pacepacker Services enhanced their PPMA Show line up with demonstration of the latest generation FANUC M-710iC robot palletiser.

This compact palletising solution, which is almost 50% smaller than a typical palletising robot, has the ability to run at speeds of 24 cycles per minute with a 25kg payload and the ability to stack sacks, crates, trays and cartons.
Operating as 15 yearlong FANUC’s strategic partner, Pacepacker can supply this system as part of a new bagging or pick and place line, or retrofit to an existing line to giving manufacturers the opportunity to automate their palletising process in a confined space. At about half the size of a full-scale robot the FANUC M-710iC can also be rail mounted where floor space is limited.
In addition to its space saving solution the FANUC M-710iC has the ability to stack numerous product types including trays, sacks and crates, without part changeover if a multi purpose end effector is fitted. With a medium payload the system is capable of handling up to 25 kilos of weight, making it suitable for a range of applications including food, agricultural and aggregates – while its six axis allows for speed with high repeatability over an indefinite sustained period.
