ABB's PalletPack consists of an IRB 460 robot; a Flex-Gripper (either the claw or one-zone clamp gripper), an ABB control PLC, an ABB safety PLC; PalletWare support software, user documentation; and the ABB FlexPendant featuring an easy-to-use graphical human machine interface.
A key feature of the PalletPack is the wizard enabled set up and programming, which makes programming very similar to that used for a traditional PLC. This enables PLC programmers - without specific robotic experience - to program the system, eliminating the complications that can arise when a specific programming skill set is required.
The programming and operation are carried out via the user friendly FlexPendant, the standard ABB Robotics human machine interface. This features a graphical interface with four user friendly screens; pallet and pick set up, pallet pattern set up, path profile and movement edition.
