TopTier Pick n Place

Low infeed, configurable, space-saving, low cost palletizer


Robotic palletizing has become an increasingly accepted alternative to traditional layer palletizing, but the solution is not without challenges. Typical generic robot palletizers experiences limits on products that can be handled, performance issues with deviations in product uniformity, special training to handle complexities of robot programming, large footprint, custom integration, and the expense of support. All these shortcomings are eliminated with the TopTier Pick & Place palletizer.

  • Best value: palletize any production line
  • Easy to use and ready to run
  • Highest safety rating
  • Smallest footprint

FULL FEATURED VALUE SOLUTION

TopTier’s low infeed Robot Pick and Place palletizer provides unmatched capabilities for low to moderate rate applications at a price point allowing any production line to be automated. This palletizer has the smallest footprint of any full-featured palletizing solution.Robot Pick n Place

  • Smallest footprint available for full-featured automatic palletizing
  • Patented Sweep Turn infeed builds precise rows at rates higher than competitive solutions
  • Full bottom support robotic handling eliminates vacuum lifting
  • 6″x6″ to 24″x16″ products handled automatically
  • Allen Bradley controls with servo controlled pick and place motion
  • 9″ PanelView HMI with intuitive graphics interface to manage patterns and tune machine functions
  • Category 3 PLd safety standard with controlled entrance preventing hazard exposure
  • Configurable to fit in any space with three load exit or entrance sides

SAFETY FIRST

TopTier’s Robot Pick and Place palletizers are a fully integrated purpose built palletizing solution, as opposed to an assembly of a robot, guarding, end of arm tooling with separate controls. Each frame element is an integral part of a Category 3 PLd controlled entrance safety enclosure. 100% bottom supporting row build and pick and place systems are integrated into the frame structure, including Allen Bradley controls. Safety is not an accessory. The integrated safety system with controlled entrance protocols prevent hazard until the safety system affirms safe conditions exist.

BOTTOM SUPPORT

Limitations of nearly all robot pick to pallet solutions are products being palletized must be suitable for vacuum top picking with rate potential limited due to single case pick to pallet cycles. TopTier’s new Robot Pick and Place has overcome such limitations combining patented row building technology with an Allen Bradley servo-controlled row pick and place solution where product is 100% bottom supported until deposited on load. The resulting solution achieves higher rates, can handle nearly any product and is delivered 100% assembled ready for work in the smallest and most configurable footprint available.

Each pick and place robotic cycle handles a full row precisely and independently assembled in parallel to pick and place cycles using lower mechanism speeds with greater reliability, resulting in higher rates while building superior loads. Regardless of the product footprint, the row bottom support floor automatically adjusts to product size using patent pending technology. At deposit, the support floor is pulled out from under the row placing the row exactly as required for a tight layer and load.

“The Robot Pick and Place is truly plug and play. Position with a forklift and it’s ready for work.”
