An EUR pallet with forklift sticks is placed on a lift table. From here the sticks are picked off in layers and placed on a chain conveyor to be taken to the robot’s collection point. A robot arm fetches the forklift sticks that are needed for a package then moves out and places them on the package. The forklift driver can choose whether or not a package should have sticks. Information on the stick pattern to be used is taken from the package loader.
