Timber handling robot

Robot packing and stacking of timber

Malmsbury Timber Supplies is owned and operated by Tim and Baz in a quaint rural Victorian location.

Wanting to meet expected future growth, a robot packing and stacking solution was sourced to handle the output of their staking machine.
Implementing a robot into production also eliminates the numerous OHS risks associated with the task.

The robotic timber handling system has been designed to accommodate various sized timber products that go through the line, and utilises a heavy duty robotic timber gripper.

The robot palletiser operates with no external PLC, making a very simple low cost implementation with high ROI for the owners at Malmsbury Timber Supplies.
Baz knocked up the safety fencing, and took care of strapper and pallet locating.

The Fanuc R2000iB/165F robot is perfect for palletizing applications due to its large working envelope, high payload, and high speed.

If you are also looking for an intelligent cost effective automated solution to palletise or stack timber prosucts, then Automation Solutions has a solution for you.
