Choosing the wrong palletizer for a factory’s integrated packaging system can severely limit the production line performance. Several form factors are inherent to each project that determine which palletizer best fits the situation. Bill Pendleton, an engineer at EPIC Systems, Inc., lays out how to choose between the two most common forms of palletizers:

EPIC recently developed a fully integrated packaging system with a palletizing solution. A robotic palletizer was selected with an end-of-arm-effector. The palletizer could be programmed to grab seven different sizes of cased products and stack them correctly onto the pallet.
