The miniPAL is a mobile palletizer powered by the UR10e cobot arm. With a footprint of 11 x 13 ft, the flexible miniPAL can palletize at two pallet locations for optimized operation.

The latest design includes two safety mats and two area scanners that detect when people enter the work envelope, allowing the system to meet even higher speeds when not in collaborative mode. The system plugs into 110V AC wall power, can be set up in less than a day, and delivers an average payback between 8-10 months, depending on application and industry.  

“The partnership between Columbia/Okura and UR allows the two companies to provide a safe and economical palletizing solution to clients who are facing labor shortages, many of whom may also be new to factory automation,” said Brian Hutton, president of Columbia/Okura LLC. “With the introduction of a collaborative palletizer, employees can be reassigned to work on higher value, less strenuous tasks where their time and skills are better served.”
