Task automation saves valuable time in manufacturing, inventory management and package preparation. Palletisation is one of the regular steps in an industrial logistics flow. In most cases, products are homogeneous, and the traditional robot palletising solutions are sufficient. When packages vary in size, shape, and weight, stacking them in a stable, efficient, and optimal way can be a challenge.
How should units of various sizes be stacked efficiently and harmoniously in a fully automated way? Combinatorial algorithms can quickly generate an optimised compact palletising plan.
Such algorithms can either be embedded into palletising robots or can be used to facilitate the work of operators, by providing them with a pre-built palletising plan. In all cases, they are a time-saving solution whilst improving the efficiency, health, and safety of operators.
