8 Benefits of Installing Robotic Bottle Palletizers

Robotic bottle palletizers easily handle heavy loads of plastic and glass bottles, jugs and a wide variety of other containers. They quickly and securely stack bottles onto pallets without crushing, breaking or otherwise damaging them. By adding bottle and beverage palletizers to your warehouse, you’ll enjoy a competitive advantage on fulfillment since you’ll be able to transport liquid products much more quickly.

They’re a big step up from semiautomatic or automatic palletizing equipment, which require employees to run them. Learn more about how robotic palletizers can benefit your company.

Palletizing robots can palletize more than 300 pounds, and handle finished loads of more than 4,000 pounds. This can reduce lifting-related injuries, which account for a third of workplace-related injuries.

Bottle palletizer machines can also decrease repetitive motion injuries, including shoulder or lower back pain. Lower back pain is one of the most expensive workplace injuries. It’s the number one cause of disability and accounts for nearly 20% of all worker compensation claims, according to FMP Global. Nearly 500,000 claims are filed annually with an average compensation of $24,000.

Every year in America, lower back pain costs companies 264 million workdays and workers at least $50 billion in healthcare costs. That figure balloons to more than $100 billion when you factor in lost wages and reduced productivity.

If your business produces or handles chemicals, robotic bottle palletizers can add an extra layer of safety. They protect employees and the environment by reducing the risk that accompanies handling potentially toxic substances.

Robotic programming ensures high quality every time, while reducing waste and damage to products. Bottles are placed consistently each time, limiting jarring, shifting and shaking. With fully automated palletizing equipment, you also won’t have to worry whether stack patterns were done right.

Consumers want more items faster than ever before. With e-commerce expecting to make a record $893 billion in 2022, don’t get left behind. Robotic glass bottle palletizers, plastic bottle palletizers and beverage palletizers can work 24/7 and aren’t impacted by pandemic shutdowns. If your lines allow it, you can keep them running around the clock to meet seasonal peaks or higher consumer expectations. This will help you increase production while keeping labor and operating costs under control.

Robotic palletizing can reduce recruitment costs and labor rates, which can range from $15/hourly or $60,000/annually or more for just one employee. In some instances, robotic bottle palletizer machines can pay for themselves in just a couple of years. They can handle monotonous jobs, improving retention and reducing costs for turnover and training.

Nearly one-fourth of the manufacturing workforce is 55 or older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. As these baby boomers retire in coming years, factories will be even more desperate for employees. More than 2.4 million jobs will need workers between now and 2028, according to the Manufacturing Institute. But those jobs might go unfulfilled as skill sets change, younger workers seek other careers and companies have difficulty finding qualified workers. You’ll be ready for fewer workers on the floor when you install robotic bottle palletizers.

Robotic bottle palletizers don’t need much maintenance. You can expect to schedule service every one to three years, depending on the environment you use yours in. More support may be needed for systems used in dirty, wet or refrigerated areas. As your single-source integration partner, RMH handles all your maintenance and support needs.

Because automation is so consistent, you’ll be able to reduce errors and damage to products. You’ll be rewarded with improved stack integrity and better customer satisfaction.

Your company has unique needs. Our engineers at RMH Systems can design and integrate custom robotic palletizing systems that meet those needs.
