Palletising made simple. simPAL® is Australis Engineering's collaboration of a modular robotic palletiser with our smart software that includes on-board pallet pattern generator. Our simPAL Palletiser creates a highly flexible palletising solution.
At its core, simPAL® is a robotic palletiser. However the elegance of simPAL is its collaboration of smart software and smart hardware to allow for a highly flexible and modular robotic palletising solution.
The success of our system revolves around the use of pre-engineered and pre-wired base “Tiles”. simPAL Tiles can be combined in many different configurations. As production needs change, the same system can be reconfigured and extended by adding additional simPAL Tiles. Due to its modular nature, installation is expedited, reducing downtime, lost production and reducing the overall cost of ownership. A typical simPAL system can be brought to site, bolted down and connected quickly and easily. Each simPAL Tile includes integrated wiring with quick interconnecting plugs and is self-contained with its own field IO module/s networked to the simPAL Controller for connection of sensors, pneumatics and motor controls.
Integrated safety panels connect directly to the Tiles and include normal fence panels as well as access gates, which are safety interlocked. Light curtains or the ABB Safe Move system are other safety options that can be easily integrated with the Tiles.
simPAL® software provides long term future proofing benefits. Without the need for complex programming, the user can generate new pallet patterns, enter new products and save new recipes. simPAL features an Automatic Pallet Generator that creates an optimised pattern or where there are multiple patterns available, allows the user to save and then choose their preferred option.

Importantly, as materials handling experts, Australis brings its extensive conveyor expertise to all robotic palletiser systems. Other robotics suppliers frequently buy their conveyors from us because they trust us to be able to solve the complexities of synchronising the product pick-up off the conveyors and the removal of a finished pallet of product with the operation of the robot. This is a crucial factor to ensuring your palletising project achieves its maximum return on investment and is a good reason to use a supplier such as Australis.
