ABB Robotics Releases Versatile and Cost-Effective PalletPack 460

ABB Robotics has unveiled the PalletPack 460, a specifically designed package made up of robotic palletizing components. It is characterized by the new IRB 460 robot that supports high-speed end-of-line palletizing. Integrated hardware with full documentation has been incorporated in this innovative configuration.

ABB Robotics Launches the PalletPack 460, a New Function Package for Fast, Flexible and Cost-Effective Palletizing

The overall project costs will be reduced and accelerate the engineering set-up process. It simplifies the designing of palletizing systems by integrators. In addition, end-user limitations are eliminated, thereby promoting the advantages of robotic palletizing automation.

This functional package that can be used either for high-speed bag palletizing or compact end-of-line case palletizing, encompasses:

  • PalletWare support software and user documentation
  • An IRB 460 palletizing robot.
  • A Flex-Gripper end-of-arm tool
  • A Jokab safety PLC and an ABB control PLC
  • ABB FlexPendant with a user-friendly graphical HMI.

The IRB 460 is the major, central component of the PalletPack and is known as the market’s rapid palletizing robot. The 4-axis IRB 460 with 110-kg capacity can extend up to 2.4 m. Its compact footprint enables easy integration into existing packing lines. The programming wizard is another major feature of PalletPack. It provides traditional PLC-equivalent programming, thereby simplifying the procedure for PLC programmers.

Furthermore, the standard ABB Robotics HMI, FlexPendant facilitates efficient operation and programming. It includes a graphical interface with four user-friendly screens such as pallet pattern set-up, pallet and pick set-up, movement edition and path profile edition.

The new function package ensures flexible, rapid and affordable palletizing.
