“From an early age I was always looking for a way to do a job quickly and efficiently. I coined the term ‘Maintenance-Centric‘ to describe what I wanted in the machines I build. What we do at BTS is create solutions that pay for themselves over a long term”

BTS designs and builds automation solutions using robots.


Through the roller EOAT for palletizing boxes and bags. Adjustable size, use this to palletize boxes or bags very efficiently especially open top boxes.  

The forked platform is 14 inches wide, able to serve boxes or bags up to 20 inches wide. The forks will work in conjunction with a top plate that applies top pressure to the box/bag, allowing the robot to move at high speed to the pallet. The addition of a scraper to hold the box/bag back while the forks withdraw.

Cylinders are controlled by a 3way valve with exhaust center. This allows the operator to relax the top pressure while maintaining the position of the scraper. This will allow the box/bag to be dropped into position on the pallet.

This tool is optimized for box/bag that are at a height of 10in to 16 in. Platform forks are adjustable. They are mounted with a shear pin and clamp to help decrease damage if the tool is accidently crashed. The tool shown is adapted for a Kawasaki Robot standard flange. Other options are available “Through the Roller” EOAT for Robot: Adjustable tall box design shown for bags or boxes Overall Tool Dimensions: 24.8W x 24.5L Min Height 25.75 (Height varies) 

  • Two MGP Style actuators with dual 16mm guide rods
  • Single cylinder to withdraw lifting platform from box or bag
  • 40mm x 150mm Dual Rod Scraper Cylinders
  • Longer draw available on larger tools 40mm x 15in (381mm)
