Palletizing and Stretch Wrapping of Plastic Trays

Spain, 2018

End-of-line project for a company in meat industry where plastic trays are palletised with packs of meat, weighing about 5 kg each one and with an approximate production of 5 trays per minute. Robot detects orientation of the tray and load it in a certain position as all must fit in same direction. Once palletizing is finished at five heights, it goes to the LINE Stretch Wrapper where a simple wrapping is made only to fix the load, finished with roping to ensure fixation to the pallet.
