ABB Robotics’ Palletizing PowerPac for RobotStudio is a programming software that merges the features and benefits of a graphic system simulation tool with application programming software. The result is the ability to create a fully simulated robotic palletizing program that can also be downloaded directly to a robotic system on the factory floor.
Users can configure, simulate and program ABB robots and grippers for palletizing solutions in one step, with little or no robot programming experience required. What used to take days can now take minutes. It will also allow potential users to validate the performance of their palletizing system before risking any equipment investments.
A designer can accurately locate the position of multiple product infeed conveyors, pallet build positions, pallet handling conveyors, robot safety enclosures and other physical barriers present in the manufacturing facility. Once the system layout is established the correct robot can be selected for the application.
