Ekatechs RN4017 robotic pallet manufacturing system offers utter flexibility, speed and simplicity.

The pallet robot eliminates the arms-consuming handling of nailing machines, as well as the heavy manual lifting of pallets and enables working without high physical strength, preventing work injuries. Furthermore, there is no need for a background in robotics, engineering or even special training to operate the RN4017. All pallet recipes are set in the easy-to-use interface, and saved and loaded for later use - reducing the changeover between orders to just seconds.

The strength of Ekatechs robotic pallet nailing system is its flexibility. No other solution makes it that easy to produce fully customized pallets. There are endless possibilities for nailing patterns as every single nail can be set freely and precisely wherever you want. The possibility to nail up to 6 nails at the time, speeds up the production even more. Stringer, Block, 2-way, 4-way, perimeter pallet,...

The RN4017 nails them all.

How does it work?

The pallet material is manually placed on one side of the rotation table by the operator. The table then turns into the robot cell, where the robot nails the pallet, lifts the pallet out of the fixture and stacks it inside the cell – all that, while the operator places new pallet material on the other side of the table and the cycle begins again.
