The potentially labor intensive process of industrial palletizing (including loading and unloading parts, boxes, bags, pails, or other items) is ideally suited to robotic palletizing automation.
Robotic palletizing allows a wide range of repetitive labor processes to be performed automatically.
Remtec’s robotic palletizers provide significant benefits in flexibility and uptime compared to traditional dedicated equipment. Whether you need a low-cost, single-line system that can be set up within a few hours, or a more complex solution with multiple robots, infeeds, and outfeeds, Remtec has pre-engineered robotic solutions ready to go.
With Remtec’s simple touchscreen controls interface, SKU setup and changeover are greatly reduced.
Remtec offers solutions for:
- Palletizing cases, bags, bundles, and containers
- Palletizing of components or work-in-process inventory
- Depalletizing cases, carton flats, or components
- Mixed/rainbow load palletizing

Robotic Palletizing FAQs
There are many situations when robotic palletizing is a great cost saving choice. Often times it is ideal when flexibility and quick changeover are desired. Other situations include when you have multiple case sizes & pallet configurations to palletize, when you need to palletize multiple products at the same time, and when you are palletizing multiple shifts per day. To find out if robotic palletizing is the most cost effective choice for your situation please contact us today.
There are a number of products that can be palletized with robotics and are essentially anything that can be stacked stably. Some example include:
- Closed top RSC cases(taped or glued)
- Trays or open top cases
- Manufactured parts in dunnage
Generally a single articulated arm robot palletizer can handle from 1-4 products at the same time, though gantry style robots or articulated robots on a rail can enable the palletizing system to handle 5-20+ products, as long as the total case per minute rate is within the capability of the robot being utilized.
Robotic palletizers cover a wide cost range depending on the application (product palletized, number of SKUs per system, rates, etc.) Remtec applications and sales specialists can assist you achieving your ROI goals.
There are a number of EOAT options available each with their own specific uses. Vacuum cups or pads are generally used for closed top cases and pails. A scoop tool or a combo scoop & clamp tool is generally used for open top cases or trays. A bag tool with lifting fingers and a tamp is generally used for large bags in the 20-100 # range. Odd shaped parts are generally picked up with a custom designed clamp tool.
any industries have enhanced productivity and efficiency with robotic palletizing, including consumer goods manufacturing, durable goods manufacturing, and food processing.
