We supply reliable and robust Robot Palletising Systems for all types of packaging lines. Together with ABB Robotics the world leading robotics specialists, we discovered a shared commitment in providing quality robotic palletising systems and support packages to new and existing customers.
ABB Robot palletisers are the most flexible method of automated product handling, offering speeds of up to 1200 cycles per hour. At RMGroup we offer new and used reconditioned systems to suit customer specifications. Our systems range from one-on-the-floor end of line palletising system for manual lines to fully automated palletising systems for high output packaging lines with various conveying, pallet magazines, pallet accumulation and pallet wrappers.
Our programming engineers use ABB’s latest simulation and offline programming software to create new programmes for palletising systems prior to installation on site. The software enables our engineers to make changes to existing programmes offline which minimises production downtime.
Programmes are altered and then dropped into the robot control panel on site. Robot studio is built on the ABB virtual controller, an exact copy of the real software that runs your robot in production. This allows realistic simulations to be performed.
For extra peace of mind, we can support our robots with maintenance plans and 24hr spares service to prevent any down time. All used robots are fully tested in our factory and once fitted come with 6 month warranty. Our technical team have developed programming to support the ABB robot palletisers, making them far more user friendly for operators switching between various products and pallet stacks. Extensive training is provided to all customers following installation.

The 1-on-the-floor palletiser serves as a budget starter system for lower production throughputs, usualy placed at the end of exisiting manual lines operated by a bagger.
The system include new or used ABB robot palletising systems with gripper head, Bag Flattener, Pacing Conveyor, Pick-up Conveyor and pallet loading section.
ABB Robots are placed within cells that utilise the latest safety systems that meet British standards. The safety features include Fixed guarding, fortress interlocked operator door and 1 set of light barriers.
Our latest robots used for palletising systems are the ABB IRB 460, the worlds fastest palletizing robots, out-performing the closest rival by 15 per cent. capable of up to 2,190 cycles an hour.
Principle of operation
An empty pallet is placed onto the pallet loading section by an operator. Bags are transferred into the palletising cell via bag handling conveyors. Retro reflective sensors detect the bag in position on the pickup conveyor and the robot arm glides into position to pick up the bag. Bags are then stacked on the pallet. Once a pallet is full all bag handling conveyors stop and the robot waits for the pallet to be removed by an operator before it begins its next cycle.
RMGroup provide the perfect solution for those looking to further automate their manual packaging systems. The 2-on-the-floor palletising system serves as an increased output system for higher production throughputs. As standard the system includes new or used ABB robot palletising system with gripper head, Pick up conveyor and 2 pallet loading sections, allowing more time to replace pallets reducing stopping frequencies of the robot.
Our palletising cells are provided with the latest safety systems that meet British standards. Safety cells include fixed guarding, fortress interlocked operator door and 2 set of light curtain barriers.
Principle of operation
Empty pallets are placed onto both the pallet loading sections by the operator. Bags are transferred into the palletising cell via bag handling conveyors. Retro reflective sensors detect the bag in position on the pickup conveyor and the robot arm glides into position to pick up the bag. Bags are then stacked onto the pallet. Once a pallet is full the robot will continue to fill the remaining pallet until both are full, the robot then waits for the pallets to be removed by the operator before it begins its next cycle.
Fully Automated Palletising Systems incorporating ABB Robotics palletisers with various conveying as well as pallet accumulation, pallet magazines, pallet wrapping and slip sheet applicators.
Our automated systems use the latest ABB technology in robotics to ensure efficiency and reliability; the systems are capable of drastically improving the efficiency of any production line. All of our systems are designed with your needs in mind to suit your bag/product type and designed to operate in the most intricate and complex spaces. Seen left is a CAD layout drawing of one of our fully automated robot palletizing systems. (Detailed are components likely to be included.)
All of our robots are housed inside cells that include the latest technology in safety, including fixed mesh guards, and light guarding to prohibit entry to robot. Any access into the system will be protected by Fortress Key switches insuring the highest level of safety for your workers.
What we supply in our Fully Automated Systems
Recommended for products that do not lend themselves to robotic pick up and placement.
Minimise ‘pallet take off time’ with 3 full pallet accumulation robot palletising. This layout allows operators to carry out other duties without having to spend time on a forklift truck waiting for full pallets to exit. This system will accumulate three full pallets before an FLT operator is required. On this particular system a pallet magazine can be used for automated placement of pallets, or empty pallets can be placed on manually.
