Cobot palletiser solves workforce challenges


Responding to manufacturers’ end-of-line labour challenges, including staff shortages, social distancing measures and self-isolation, OMRON UK will debut its game-changing cobot palletiser, the RB1200, on stand B34 at PPMA Show 2021.

Thanks to OMRON’s iAutomation proprietary technology, the cobot system boasts a 50% cost saving, rapid delivery within weeks and plug-and-play system architecture to help businesses of all budgets and sizes immediately de-risk their line against today’s unprecedented labour challenges.

The RB1200 was developed in partnership with OMRON’s automation partner Reeco. Together, the two companies have designed a cobot palletiser that makes manufacturers resilient to the detrimental effects of both labour shortages and the possibility of immediate workforce interruptions.

A modular, plug-and-play solution, the RB1200 has a maximum payload of 10kg and a cycle time of 12 picks per minute. It requires no system integration and boasts a 60% smaller footprint than conventional robot palletisers. Its inherent flexibility also means it can easily switch between lines and handle rapid changes in demand, maximising users’ investment.
