Depalletizing 
Station
Automating the process of depalletizing corrugated boxes, sacks, and totes is of high demand. It is often found in warehouses for medium-sized SKUs and at the end of production lines, because the job is labor intensive. The weight of an SKU usually ranges from 45-110lbs (20-50kg). And heavy lifting often leads to work injuries. Therefore, robotic arms are preferred and can perform much efficiently than human workers.
XYZ Depalletzing Station features optimized motion planning, which outperforms similar solutions by 50%.

Features

High Throughput
 Achieves 600-900 cases per hour in a 90-deg layout (e.g. 
picking from the front and placing on the sides). Fast deployment.
 Time-saving: SKU registration is not required.

High Accuracy
Accurately identifies boxes that are dark-colored, textured,
with straps, and/or tightly placed.
100% accuracy for pre-registered SKUs.

Technologies

Challenges
Complicated and time-consuming system training. No motion planning resulting in low performance.
Challenges
Most vision systems cannot recognize the boundaries of boxes.
Real-time Motion Planning

Optimized motion planning without system training, outperforming solutions of the same layout by 50%.

Precise Operation
     
A camera installed on the robot arm identifies the gaps between boxes to ensure precise depalletizing.
