Palletizing is an end-of-line task performed in almost all production facilities. Therefore, a reliable and efficient palletizing system is crucial to business continuity. Yet, it can quickly become a bottleneck, and here's why:
There's a ramping labor shortage in the manufacturing industry. People don't want to perform such strenuous tasks Workers face high injury risks, which can lead to prolonged absences. Hiring and packaging costs are increasing daily.
That's why you should consider collaborative robotic palletizing. Collaborative robots can work hours without breaks, which means you can significantly increase your production output and get your products to the market faster.
Robotic palletizing is also a safer option for your workers. With cobots handling the heavy lifting and stacking, there is less risk of injury or strain on your employees.
