This paper presents the strategic control system of a robotic palletising system for a production company to achieve higher level automation and higher productivity as well as user-friendly operation. The control configuration consists of a graphical application running on a human-machine interface (HMI) touch screens interfaced to a programmable logic controller (PLC), and a servo system that executes palletiser reconfiguration and makes high-speed robotic palletizing possible. Significant downtime reduction during batch changes is achieved due to simplification of operator tasks, which makes the configuration and control method ideally suitable for production environments with frequent batch changes.
