Palletizer Robot Uses Common PLC Platform

POSTED 01/03/2011

g hspace="10" height="175" align="right" width="200" src="/userAssets/riaUploads/Intelligrated_FBP1210_Suppl.jpg" alt="Palletizer Robot Uses Common PLC Platform " />New robotic palletizer from Intelligrated uses an Alvey robot that is controlled via a common programmable logic controller (PLC) platform. This alternative to the traditional proprietary robot controller improves line integration, response time and overall productivity while reducing operator and maintenance training. The PLC-based control system enables customers to deploy new Alvey robotic palletizing solutions while maintaining their standard control platform, streamlining complex control communication, reducing critical response time and minimizing changeover delays.
