Hermes Mobile Palletizer Options and Accessories

Customization at Your Fingertips: Options and Accessories

At Zeta Group, we understand that sometimes, your line requires more than just a palletizer and a single conveyor.

That's why our Hermes Mobile Cobot Solution for palletizing offers remarkable flexibility to cater to a wide range of project requirements.

By sourcing all components for your palletizing line from Zeta, you benefit from the seamless integration, compatibility, and expert support throughout the implementation process.

In this blog post, we'll explore the versatile options and accessories of our Hermes series and how it can be optimized for different case sizes and product types.

Multiple Tooling Options

Sometimes a “one-size-fits-all" tool won't get the job done.

With multiple tooling options, Hermes can handle multiple unique product shapes and sizes.

Single Zone Vacuum Tool

This is the standard tooling option that is perfect for picking one case per pick where the cases have sealed tops.

Multi Zone Vacuum Tool

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

Adjustable Vacuum Tool

The adjustable tool allows for handling different lengths of boxes with the same tool. It is manually adjusted by the operator before switching box types.

Fork Tool

When tops of cases aren't sealed or are open, such as display cases, the fork tool is used.

Vacuum Bag Tool

For industries dealing with bagged products, the vacuum bag tool is the perfect solution.

Upstream Options and Accessories

Label or Print & Apply

If you must label your product before it gets palletized, we can integrate a label or print & apply system upstream of the palletizer.

Label Verification

We have an option to add label verification to ensure your labels are properly placed.

Conveyors Per Layout Requirement

Hermes comes standard with one conveyor, but we understand that sometimes you may need more. We can manufacture more conveyors based on your layout requirements.

Barcode/QR Reader

If you have barcode readers or QR codes that need to be scanned prior to palletizing, we can install a barcode/QR code reader.

Tier Sheet Stand

We offer a tier sheet stand and will configure the palletizer to handle these sheets in between pallet stacks.

Other Options/Accessories

UL Labeled Panels

We offer UL labeled panels when required.

Pallet Type Sensors

We can add sensors to detect the type of pallet present whether it be GMA vs. Chep.

Pallet Clear Sensors

Adding pallet clear sensors allows the system to detect when the pallet is clear form product. This is typically used for line control.
