Others – crates, packs, …

Plastic and metal crates, paper trays, buckets, cans, sealed packs, and jars, and their palletization, pose unique challenges in the industry.


A robotic palletizing/de-palletizing workstation consists of:

  • A dedicated and tested industrial robot for the application – Kawasaki BX300L
  • A gripper for picking up a full layer to achieve the required palletizing (200 crates per hour) and de-palletizing (200 crates per hour) efficiency
  • Safety elements such as a safety controller, laser curtains, industrial fencing
  • Automation elements such as control, HMI panel, PLC controller
  • Pallet transport system and plastic boxes
  • Workstation fitted into the layout of the customer hall and adapted to the height of the hall

Plastic crates are widely used in various sectors such as food, medical, and automotive industries. The challenge in packing these crates lies in optimal space utilization and protecting products from damage during transportation. Precise crate stacking on pallets is required to ensure stability and cargo safety.

Metal crates are commonly used in industries that require durable packaging, such as heavy industry and construction. When packing these crates, considering their weight and shape is essential to provide adequate protection during transportation. Additionally, it is important to protect them from corrosion and other damages to maintain high-quality packaging.

Paper trays are primarily used in the food industry for packing and presenting fruits, vegetables, and other delicate products. Preserving product integrity and ensuring proper ventilation to prolong freshness are unique challenges when packing paper trays. Precise tray placement on pallets is necessary to avoid shifting and damage during transport.

Buckets are widely used in the food, chemical, and construction industries. When packing buckets, proper sealing and protection against leaks are necessary to safeguard the contents. Optimal bucket stacking on pallets is crucial for maintaining stability and avoiding damage during transportation.

Cans are popular packaging options for beverages, canned goods, cosmetics, and many other products. Protection against dents and external damages to maintain their aesthetics and integrity is important when packing cans. Effective can placement on pallets allows for maximum space utilization and minimizes the risk of damages.

Sealed packs are used in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Ensuring tight seals and adequate protection against damages are crucial to preserve product quality. Precise pack arrangement on pallets minimizes the risk of shifting and loss of stability during transport.

Jars are popular packaging options for preserves, jams, honey, and many other food products. When packing jars, ensuring proper protection against damages and shocks to maintain the integrity of the contents is vital. Precise jar arrangement on pallets minimizes the risk of toppling and ensures stability during transportation.

All these packaging types require precise handling and packaging technologies that enable optimal space utilization, minimize the risk of damages, and increase logistical process efficiency. At Domasz Robotics, we offer advanced solutions that help manufacturers effectively handle and pack various types of packaging, ensuring product protection and customer satisfaction.
