Canister gripper

These days, economic production is not possible without automation. The lifetimes of products are getting shorter and shorter - and the requirements for intelligent and flexible automation technologies correspondingly larger. Products, concepts and solutions must meet the needs defined and be perfectly coordinated.


Two different types of plastic canisters were to be palletized automatically.
marti engineering developed the gripper on behalf of marti Systeme.

Project details

A form-fitting gripping system for plastic canisters of 10 or 20 liters without changing the format. 
240 canisters per hour

Key technical data

Construction year: 2017
Project length: approx. 4 months
Measurements: L x W x H = 25 x 18 x 45 cm
Weight: 14.5 kg

Robot: ABB IRB460

With marti systeme we have found a competent and reliable partner who supported us in the planning and installation of the canister filling line with great specialist knowledge and in a target-oriented manner. Special mention should be made of the fast response times and cost-optimized behavior. The palletizing robot runs reliably and trouble-free. The successful collaboration is being continued with a second project.
