Palletizing and palletizing conveyor systems place, stack, wrap and store products like filled bags, boxes, and containers on shipping pallets for storage or sale. Palletizing machines can be manual, semi-automatic, and automatic and usually are placed at the end of a packaging line. A palletizing robot, such as the Fanuc robot, have revolutionized the packaging industry and have proven to be one of the best returns on investment for upgrading an existing packaging or bagging operation.

Palletizing robots and machines are space saving machines that can be lined up in any direction to accept bags, boxes, or pails from a conveyor system. They minimize the risk of repetitive injuries that happen from stacking filled bags all day on shipping pallets, while reducing staffing requirements at the same time. If your budget does not allow for a palletizing robot, we recommend the EZ Loader bag palletizing machine for manually stacking products at the end of a packaging line.
The video below shows a bag palletizing robot stacking 50 lb. paper valve bags onto a pallet located on the floor per the programmed bag placement design. This robot was added to an existing bag filling system to reduce labor costs and increase automation.
The high-speed robotic bag palletizer shown in the video below stacks 50 x 50 lb. bags of sugar on shipping pallets.
High-Speed Robotic Palletizer Stacks 50 lb. Bags Filled with Sugar
50 lb. open mouth paper bags are filled in a packaging area. From there, they are transported through a protected opening in a wall, to a decline bag transfer conveyor, and then to a powered 90 degree turning conveyor under a bag flattener that removes some of the air from each bag.
This robotic palletizer can palletize bags at rates up to 30 bags per minute. It is also capable of placing pallets, as well as slip sheets on the pallets. It is ideal for handling multiple packaging lines at the same time and can yield the highest return on investment. It can be designed around your plant layout with our standard bag filling line components.
