Packaging and shipping robots
The packing and shipping robots mostly stack the finished facing bricks, common bricks and pavers directly on pallets that are then covered with a film hood or strapped and are then ready for shipment to the customer. Finished roof tiles, roof tile accessories, floor tiles and brick slips are first combined in packs by 6-axis articulated robots. They are then optionally covered with film hoods, strapped or packed in boxes. Moreover, since 2014, 4-axis Delta robots have been used to sort and package smaller products like brick slips.
