Robot Palletiser

Small footprint, low cost, high specification and fast payback

The Linkx Robot Palletiser is designed to meet modern production environments where space is a constraint and the need for potential future expansion is a consideration. Small footprint, low cost, high specification, fast payback.



Compact, fast, flexible

When selecting a robot palletiser system, the pallet pattern, product type, product orientation, product speed and system layout, will all be factors needing attention to suit the application.
The base model is designed to accommodate up to 15 movements per minute. The products may be picked in multiples to achieve the required palletisation speeds but only in accordance with the pallet pattern. The basic gripper will be a clamping, rotating system, and other grippers are available depending on the product type.

High specification, modular, upgradable

The robotic palletiser machine’s modular construction will allow you to start with a compact cell which can be loaded and unloaded with a simple pallet truck. This unit can be added to at a later date, with conveyors, layer pad and pallet dispensers as required and ultimately, automatic stretch wrapping.
Pallet pattern software allows customers to easily configure their own pallet patterns.

High reliability

The robot palletiser system is UK designed and built for 24/7 operating environments, with full diagnostic system and Ethernet connectivity for remote support as standard.

Robotic Palletiser

Reliable, Adaptable, Affordable.

The Linkx Systems Robot Palletiser uses efficient KUKA robot cells to perform almost any palletising process. Through our partnership with KUKA we combine our innovative engineering with KUKA’s expertise to create palletising applications that are reliable, adaptable and affordable. Our robot palletisers can lift and manoeuvre up to 1000kg of product with the same speed and precision as a 1kg product, without compromising on the accuracy of the movement.

The various end-of-arm-tooling styles, or end effectors, allow for a quick change over of palletising patterns, and numerous layer configurations. The secure robotic cell and safety guards reduce the risk of injuries and human error maximizing performance. Our Robotic palletisers can load both Chep and Euro pallets making it a superior integrated solution.

Once you buy a palletiser that’s Robotic, you’ll find it hypnotic!
