Industrial Dual Simultaneous Palletizing Robot

by Vertical AIT

Install an industrial FANUC robot for palletizing large heavy boxes.

Two pallet systems allow near continuous operations that allow the loading of one pallet without having to immediately remove the completed pallet. Using laser safety fencing we can automatically stop the robot when the forklift(or a person) enters the workcell and then restart the process once the workcell is safe for operation.

  • FANUC R-2000i 210F Industrial Robot
  • PIAB Foam Vacuum Gripper
  • Laser Safety Curtain
  • Magnetically Coded Sensor for Safety Gate
  • SICK Photoelectric Retro-reflective sensors for box detection


Program a custom palletization routine for unique layout of large heavy cases of oil.
The FANUC robot was programmed to palletize to multiple locations. Upon completion of a left pallet the robot verifies no boxes are present on the right and will switch to the right pallet.


Boxes being lifted are quite heavy, up to about 45 lbs, which meant a custom fit vacuum gripper was needed to ensure a safe working load ratio. Additionally, it was necessary to be able to stop and restart the robot quickly to be able to remove completed pallets but also ensure that pallets are empty prior to switching sides. Safety curtains and photoelectric sensors are used to stop the process when interrupted and to ensure that pallets are empty prior to beginning the palletization routines.
