Columbia/Okura’s miniPAL Now Featured as Part of Universal Robots UR+ Application Kits

Columbia/Okura LLC, a North American robotic palletizing integrator, recently announced that the miniPAL®, a collaborative palletizer featuring the UR10e robot, has been certified and added to the Universal Robots UR+ Applications Program.

The UR+ program debuted in 2016 and has reportedly grown rapidly to include more than 262 launched products and 301 different companies. With this certification, Universal Robots confirms that it has tested and approved the products to work with their portfolio of collaborative robots.

The compact design of miniPAL® features an integrated lifting column for tall loads, dual stacking locations for continuous load building, built-in fork pockets for easy mobility, area scanners and pressure mats for additional safety, and intuitive pattern building software. The system reportedly plugs into 110V AC wall power, could be set up in less than a day, and delivers an average payback between eight to 10 months, depending on application and industry.

“The UR+ program is an excellent platform for Columbia/Okura to showcase our newest product – the miniPAL® – to potential clients across a multitude of different industries,” said Michael Stuyvesant, director of sales for Columbia/Okura. “And having met the comprehensive testing and certification criteria established by Universal Robots, those potential clients can be assured they are getting a robust solution backed by our quarter century of palletizing experience.”
