We give you more than just industry-defining robotic palletizers. We give you peace of mind. Each of our robots come with complete system integration services to ensure that your new palletizer works perfectly with your upstream and downstream equipment.

Robotic Palletizers

Columbia/Okura has been an industry leader in industrial palletizing robots for over 25 years. Like all industrial robots, our robots are programmable, automating tasks that are often repetitive or harmful to workers. They have the ability to lift and move heavy loads quickly while keeping products safe and stacking them to be shipped or even neatly to be sold in stores.

What Is A Robotic Palletizer?

Robotic palletizers build a pallet load by picking the product from a conveyor and placing it directly onto the pallet. Building the predefined pattern right on the pallet, again layer by layer, until the full pallet load is created and removed from the machine.

miniPAL® 2.0 Cobot

The new miniPAL® 2.0 cobot is Columbia/Okura's latest palletizing robot featuring the UR10e robot for Universal Robots. The new, more compact, design includes a more narrow frame and cover than our previous cobot. The plug and play, 110 volt, self contained unit is capable of palletizing cases, trays, spot-packs, and other packages onto any pallet up to 48" x 40".
