Hermes Mobile Cobot’s End of Arm Tooling Options for Palletizing

In today’s ever-evolving world of manufacturing and automation, companies are constantly seeking innovative solutions to streamline their processes.

At Zeta Group Engineering, we are keeping ahead of the field and reimagining the manufacturing floor with the Hermes Mobile Cobot Solution for palletizing.

End of Arm Tooling Versatility

One of the many features that sets Hermes apart from the competition is its remarkable end of arm tooling (EOAT) adaptability, offering a range of tooling options that cater to diverse product needs.

Let’s take a closer look at these tooling options:

Single Zone Vacuum Tool: Standard EOAT

The Single Zone Vacuum Tool is the standard tooling option for Hermes.

It’s the go-to choice when your application involves picking one case per pick, and the cases have sealed tops.

This tool ensures precision and efficiency when handling sealed cases, making it a valuable asset for many production lines.

Multi-Zone Vacuum Tool: Increasing Your Efficiency

The Multi-Zone Vacuum Tool, closely related to the standard tool, takes versatility up a notch.

With this tool, Hermes can pick multiple cases at once, either placing them simultaneously or at different times.

This option drastically increases productivity and efficiency in a scenario where the rate needs to be increased.

By streamlining your workflow, you can save time and resources, making your operations more cost-effective.

Vacuum Bag: Seamlessly Handling Bagged Products

For industries dealing with bagged products, the Vacuum Bag Tool is the perfect solution.

It provides a secure and efficient grip on bagged items, ensuring minimal damage and improved precision during the picking process.

Whether you’re in food, pharmaceuticals, or e-commerce, this tool ensures smooth and reliable handling of bagged goods, enhancing your production line’s efficiency.

Fork Tool: Tackling Tricky Cases

Some cases can’t be used with the vacuum tool, especially when their tops aren’t sealed or are open, such as display cases.

This is where to Fork Tool steps in.

Designed for those challenging scenarios, this tool ensures smooth handling, even with non-standard cases.

It’s a game-changer for industries where the top of the case poses difficulties in standard palletizing, allowing for a versatile and dependable solution.
