      Loading and unloading pallets

      Palletising robots for any application

      The robots of the Modulpal Pro series provide many options for loading and unloading pallets. You can individually combine each of the modules to suit your requirements. For example, you can create palletising specialists which are extremely quick and gentle on the product or highly flexible or also specialists which meet all of these properties at once.

      Overview of the models
      Modulpal Pro 1A
      Modulpal Pro 1A

      1A = 1 axis

      With this system version, the packs are moved vertically. The pre-grouped packs are fed to the palletiser at a high infeed level and guided from four sides until they are positioned on the pallet. The open-top design of the shutter gripper head allows for the optimal insertion of the layer pads

      Load capacity: 300 kg

      Output: Non-returnable packs: Up to 460 layers per hour

      Modulpal Pro 3AR
      Modulpal Pro 3AR

      3A = 3 axes
      R = Rotation

      The base pivoting unit allows the robot to rotate around its own axis. This makes it possible for this Modulpal to cover a working range of 360° during palletising and depalletising.

      Modulpal Pro 1AD
      Modulpal Pro 1AD

      1A = 1 axis
      D = Double column

      Quicker palletising performance thanks to multitasking: The Modulpal Pro 1AD consists of two synchronously operating modules: a transfer and a palletising module.
      The pre-grouped pack layer firstly enters the transfer module and is moved to the correct transfer height. The palletising module picks it up and positions it onto the pallet. During this entire process, the layer is guided from four sides.

      Special features of the Modulpal Pro 1AD:

      • No pneumatic components required at all
      • Mounted on a stable base frame for quick assembly and more independence from the floor quality
      • For high outputs at low level pack infeed

      Load capacity: 300 kg

      Output: Non-returnable packs: up to 650 layers/h

      Grouping system for non-returnable packs

      All Modulpal versions can be combined with the following grouping systems:

      Robobox

      • Creates different layer patterns for non-returnable packs
      • Processes single-lane or double-lane packs
      • Turns and distributes the packs exactly according to the specifications for the pre-programmed layer pattern
      • Depending on the required output, one or two modules can be employed for layer grouping
      • Optional: equipment with parallel kinematic robot (Tripod)

      Benefits to you

      Freedom of combination and high performance

      Depending on the task, all components can be combined with each other flexibly. This results in an optimal machine configuration from low to high output ranges also with a low pack infeed.

      Quick start-up

      The structure on a stable base frame increases the palletiser’s installation time and makes it also independent from the subsurface.

      Maintenance-friendly and noise-protected

      The integrated belt drive simplifies maintenance and reduces noise. The system was deliberately constructed with no lubrication systems so that the extent of maintenance could be kept low. 

      Flexibility and versatility

      A large selection of gripper heads enables optimal processing of different pack types and sizes as well as different pallet dimensions. 

      Sustainability –reduced energy and media consumption

      The use of servo motors and energy recovery systems, the extensive omission of compressed air consumers and the use of encapsulated, lifetime-lubricated bearings results in low energy and media consumption.

      Economic efficiency

      Thanks to the uniform modular component system, handling of several Modulpal Pro versions at a time is especially economical.

      High dynamics and accuracy

      The servo motor drive system for the axes allows highly dynamic movements and maximum repeat accuracy.

      Ease of operation

      Depending on the version, the system can change to other sizes semi-automatically or fully automatically. And if jobs arise which require operator intervention, situation-related indicators with graphical instructions allow the machine to be directed intuitively. And if jobs arise which require operator intervention, situation-related indicators with graphical instructions allow the machine to be directed intuitively.

      Certified ecological efficiency: This is why the Modulpal Pro is enviro-classified

      • Servo-driven main drive of the energy efficiency class IE4
      • Energy recovery via the modular B&R ACOPOSmultidrive system
