The WEST PCR has been designed to be a compact palettizing solution for end of line packaging. Palletizers are larger in size and a lot less flexible. The use of a collaborative robot in
this case has reduced the footprint to below 45% of the usual size found on lines around the globe.
The use of the collaborative robot also means that additional guarding is not required as all safety features are contained within the unit itself. This also means a continuous workflow between robot and operator as the operator can remove a complete pallet without the need stop the system.
The system has been designed to be self-contained meaning an internal vacuum pump is integrated meaning no external air supply is needed. The design is easy to install and can be operational
within hours not days. The system can be deployed to different lines when required.
