Robot for stacking insulation rolls

USA, December 2023

It is highly noticeable that insulation has become a very important aspect in world’s environmental improvements. Willems also contributes to this topic. Due to the growing demand for insulation Willems supplied a robot for fully automatic handling of rolls of insulation. A robot stacks 4 rolls together, so a wrapping system can bundle these together as a pack of 4. After the wrapping process the rolls are turned 90 ° , so they are standing up. 2 robots have been supplied for a project in USA. Two robots for maximising the total capacity. The robot is designed with a special gripper to handle the rolls of insulation. A special roller conveyor system is designed to handle the stacked rolls.

Project has been executed with Fanuc robot and Allen Bradley plc.
