Software For Robotic Palletizing Applications

Related Topics:

Developed by Kuka Robotics, version 3.5 of PalletTech software features enhanced capabilities for robotic palletizing applications, including augmented gripper support and multiple-orientation pickup. The suite of application-development and run-time tools consists of two modules, the PalletEdit tool and the PalletRunTime application package.


PalletEdit is a PC-based off-line engineering and programming tool that allows users to develop palletizing applications in a GUI environment, including optimized pallet patterns and robot motion profiles. New features include enhanced clamp gripper support, which allows the use of grippers with two independent gripping segments, as well as multiple orientation pick capability, which allows the robot to pick products oriented either lengthwise or widthwise from the same conveyor.
