Dyco Inc. is integrating Kuka robots into its bulk palletizing systems for bottles.
Dyco makes equipment to pack, de-bag, anneal, convey, inspect and palletize plastic containers. According to the Bloomsburg, Pa., firm, using its robots makes changeovers easier and adapting to different bottle sizes less costly. The systems are fully automated from bottle in-feed to pallet discharge. The robot arm is fitted with interchangeable, multipurpose tooling that moves bottles from the in-feed conveyor and positions them on the pallet.
Dyco's stabilizing ring supports each row of bottles as they are positioned in the tier, holding them until the next row is placed. When the tier is filled, the robot positions a corrugated slip sheet, and the stabilizing ring rises to the top of the next tier.
