END EFFECTORS

The variety and flexibility of our end effectors are key contributors to the versatility of our palletizing solutions.

If you are looking for a versatile robot that can easily adjust to handle your product needs, we have the solution for you. Columbia/Okura has designed our wide range of standard end effectors to manage virtually any product: cases, bags, trays, totes, bales, bundles, crates, pails, pallets or sheets. In the event your packaging is unique, we will design an end effector specifically tailored to your product packaging needs. Service parts are available to provide immediate support on each of these standard designs, direct from our warehouse.

Types of Robotic End Effectors

BAG-STYLE

Handles a variety of bags including open-mouth, valve, and FFS bags. With the application of optional servo controls, this tool is perfect when operating multiple product lines with different product sizes.

CLAMP-STYLE

This mechanical clamp-style tool works well on cases in a wide range of palletizing applications. Picking single cases, multiple cases, or rows of products is possible with this tool.

FORK-STYLE

This tool is used for handling unique packages with gentle handling requirements.

CASE/BAG-STYLE

This tool allows a single robot to palletize two production lines with different packaging requirements, allowing both bags and cases to be palletized sequentially without changing tools.

VACUUM-STYLE

This end effector is ideal for loads that require a softer touch or where fragile loads cannot be clamped.

SHEET PLACEMENT

This add-on tool handles slip, tie and cap sheets. When you need a sheet to hold your load in position, this tool is essential. A valuable addition to your robotic palletizing system.

PALLET PLACEMENT

Place pallets of any size right where you want them. Neat, efficient and easy, this end effector add-on works with precise consistency to put pallets exactly in place, every time.

CUSTOM

All of our end effectors are designed, assembled and tested in our factory. This capability provides tremendous flexibility to make sure the right end effector is applied to the needs of the palletizing system.
