Picking the Best Robotic Tooling for Palletizing
By asking the right questions, companies can design robotic systems that maximize end-of-line efficiency and ROI
Today’s manufacturers have started looking downstream more and more for automation opportunities.
And when they do, more are choosing robotic systems. According to PMMI’s 2007 Packaging Machinery
Shipments & Outlook Study, shipments of robotic palletizers rose by more than 16 percent in 2006 -
and shipments of packaging machinery are projected to increase from $469 to $530 million by 2009.
