Robot Palletising Systems
RMRobotics now forms the new division dedicated to robotic automation from RMGroup and can be visited at RMRobotics
If you are looking for a robot palletiser then RMGroup can 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 robot 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 programs for palletising systems prior to installation on site. The software enables our engineers to make changes to existing programs offline which minimises production downtime.

End of line automation with Easy Teach user-friendly HMI interface
Easy Teach is the easy to use operator interface, allowing customers full control of modifying
positions and general running of the robot via the RMG HMI. Bag position and layer quantities can be manually
changed with ease with RMG HMI Easy Teach. click below to view more information and see a full video demonstration.
Safe Move 2
RM Group are accredited suppliers of ABB robots and can now offer any of our new robot lines with ABB SafeMove2.
SafeMove2 performs safety certified monitoring of robot motion, tool and standstill supervision as well as speed limitation.
Working hand-in-hand with customers to develop innovative robot safety technologies,
ABB introduces SafeMove2. It allows for the creation of more efficient and flexible production scenarios
and integrates safety fieldbus Connectivity into ABB’s IRC5 robot controller family.

Robot Palletising Systems
End of line automation with the 1-on-the-floor palletiser serves as a budget starter system for lower production throughputs, usually placed at the end of existing packing lines operated by a bagger. The systems include new or used ABB robot palletiser 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. Boxes & Bags are transferred into the palletising cell via bag handling conveyors. Retro reflective sensors detect the bag or box in position on the pickup conveyor and the robot arm glides into position to pick up the bag or box. Bags and boxes 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.
RMGroup have been the largerest ABB robot system integrator for the past 3/4 years and dominate the palletising and general industry market. As for bag filling systems, we are one of the largest privately owned manufacturers.
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.View our brochure Contact us
Fully Automated Palletising Systems incorporating ABB Robot 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. Customers are able to visualise what their site design is via CAD layout drawings.
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.View our brochure Contact us
What we supply in our Fully Automated Systems
Further the efficiency of your line by the addition of a 3 full pallet accumulation system
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.More videos
