Robots to the rescue

Reduce labor and per unit handling costs, injury rates, and the pressure of labor shortages with a solution that is less costly, less space intensive, and more versatile & adaptable than traditional palletizing automation.

Improved Productivity

Robots can lift heavier loads and operate 24/7, without getting tired or injured. Improve operational efficiency by up to 30%, and shift workers to more value-added tasks.

Better Outcomes

Robots reliably pick and stack products exactly the same, every time. Eliminate handling errors that damage products, and improve the stability of pallets to avoid damage during shipping.

Reduced Costs

Robotic palletizers are less costly and take up less space in your facility than traditional automated palletizers. With flexible Robotics-as-a-Service pricing from Rapid, they also cost less per hour to operate than average labor rates.

Flexibility & Adaptability

Robotic palletizers can handle multiple SKUs and pallet patterns. They can also manage secondary tasks like slipsheet placement, or even serve multiple lines. It's easy to add or change SKUs and pallet patterns if operational needs change.

Improved Workplace Safety

Palletizing-related injuries are the number one cause of workers' comp claims. Automating palletizing frees your workers up for less dangerous, more value-added tasks.
