ABB PalletPack 460 robotic palletising system
ABB has launched the PalletPack 460, a pre-engineered package of proven robotic palletising components featuring the IRB 460 robot designed specifically for high-speed, end-of-processing-line palletising.
The speedy, 4-axis IRB 460 features a 110 kg capacity plus a reach of 2.4 m. Its compact footprint makes it suitable for integration into existing packing lines, convenient for high-speed bag or compact end-of-processing-line case palletising.
ABB’s PalletPack consists of an IRB 460 robot; a Flex-Gripper (either the claw or one-zone clamp gripper); a control PLC; a safety PLC; PalletWare support software; user documentation; and the FlexPendant featuring an easy-to-use graphical human machine interface.
The PalletPack is claimed to be easy to work with. There’s no need for any specialised robot programming know-how. Robot, grippers, safety and cell control PLCs, graphical human machine interface and software come in the PalletPack all ready to plug in and perform.
A key feature of the PalletPack is the wizard-enabled set-up and programming, which makes programming very similar to that used for a traditional PLC. This enables PLC programmers - without specific robotic experience - to program the system, eliminating the complications that can arise when a specific programming skill set is required. The programming and operation are carried out via the user-friendly FlexPendant, the standard ABB Robotics human machine interface. This features a graphical interface with four user-friendly screens: pallet and pick set-up, pallet pattern set-up, path profile and movement edition.
It is claimed that programming time for the PalletPack 460 can be reduced by as much as 65% compared to traditional methods, shortening the return on investment and making robotic palletising more attractive to a wide range of end users.
