Intelligent palletiser provides compact solution to busy end of line operations

Kawasaki Robotic’s new 80Kg palletiser is showcased at this year’s PPMA show.  The RD080N is faster and more compact than its predecessor and uses the recently launched E-Controller.

Designed specifically for palletising, Kawasaki Robotic’s RD080N is lighter than its predecessor and maintains its rigid construction.  Duty cycle tests illustrate its high speed by performing 2,800 cycles, with 80Kg payloads, of 75mm vertical and 900mm horizontal an average individual cycle time of 1.28 secs.

For multi- robot environments, typical in busy end of line areas, the RD080N provides a less-crowded solution.  Its width at 584mm is claimed by Kawasaki to be class leading while its reach of 2.1Mtr and palletising height up to 3.31Mtr comfortably meets conventional palletising demands.

Although a conventional 4 axis palletiser, the RD080N does have a 5th axes compensation joint which maintains a parallel wrist face.  This joint allows plus or minus 10° of movement and can be usefully utilised to allow placement of layer cards/seperators or tighter packing of products such as ready meals into open containers.

Smoother lines of the new Kawasaki robot further assist the palletising process.  All electrics and pneumatics for end of arm tooling are plumbed into the arm reducing the risk of snagging and helping to speed up programming.

Further helping to make the RD080N faster, smoother and easier to integrate is Kawasaki’s latest E-Controller.  The E-Controller range offers faster processing, increased memory, higher resolution encoding, increased communications options and additional teach pendant functionality.
