EC-171 Robotic Palletizing Machine


  • The EC-171 robot has the largest working envelope of all Fuji Robots while maintaining the smallest rotation radius. The EC-171 is energy efficient using only 4 Kva while still allowing the robot to work in tight space conditions and accomplish a high palletizing rate.

    This robotic palletizing machine, as well as the other models, offer many advantages that no other manufacturer can provide. Please note a few of those advantages and contact us directly to find out more. Click here to see the EC-171 Robotic Palletizer Video.

    Mechanical Advantage

    The weight of the mechanically balanced arm can be supported by a single finger. This insightful fact demonstrates the dynamics of a true palletizing robot. This unique design allows our robot to use less energy and dramatically reduces unwanted stress on the arm joints, bearings, pivot points, and floor supports. Other industrial robots were originally designed for painting, welding, tending machines, etc? A balanced boom was not a factor due to the nature of robot applications at the time. The Fuji Robot is the only manufactured articulated robotic arm “specifically” built for palletizing.

    Software / Human Interface Advantage

    The touch screen (standard with every model) is geared for machine operators, mechanical personnel, and management alike. The operators can change a palletizing program in less than 5 seconds. Maintenance personnel can add lubrication based on an onboard warning system, review error occurrences and take corrective measures based on the problem, and monitor I/O in real time. Management can track palletized inventory by specific programs (60 recipe locations), compare running hours with powered up hours, and have the ability to monitor the machine in real time from their office (Ethernet ready PLC and networking software required).
