50 NEW TECHNOLOGY // SUMMER 2015 www.PackagingDigest.com new products Pack Expo Las Vegas Offline setup of robotic palletizing patterns The PalletSolve robotic palletizing software suite for Motoman robots permits the setup of pallet patterns and robot motion on a PC so that the robot does not have to be taken offline for teaching. PalletSolver enables quick changeovers without stopping production to validate pallet patterns and allows faster integration of a palletizing system by making it easy to configure and set up. PalletSolver can easily be customized for complex robotic palletizing applications. It has an intuitive graphical user interface that configures cell parameters and a guided step-by-step process for developing patterns. It can directly import pallet patterns generated from TOPS or CAPE software. PalletSolver is available on both the DX100 robot controller and the PLC-integrated MLX200 platform. A trial version of the software is available for download along with free online training courses.
