Columbia/Okura robotic palletizer moves lumber from a conveyor.


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.

miniPAL® Cobot Benefits

The Columbia/Okura miniPAL® cobot is a collaborative palletizing robot, featuring the UR10e robot by Universal Robots. It's compact design takes minimal facility floor space, with an operating footprint of just 8' x 10' with two pallets, and can work alongside employees for most applications with no guarding. It has continuous load building capabilities up to 80" load heights onto two pallet locations at speeds of up to 5 CPM in collaborative mode. Offering a quick payback, flexible deployment for easy relocation in any facility, and easy operations with no programming required, it is a great solution for many customers across various industries.

We design our own system controls and build our peripheral equipment control panels in house. Our panel shop is UL508A certified. No matter what your project needs are, we have the experience, capability and capacity to design and build the right control system for you.


We have designed our “Do-it-Yourself” palletizing software to simplify adding new patterns to your robot. Just create a pattern on your personal computer or laptop and download it to the robot controller. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Enter Product Info
  2. Select Pattern
  3. Download. Palletize


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.
