Kawasaki Robotics Spin Control Function has two control systems. Their differences are listed in the table below.
1. Simple Spin Control: Expands the motion range of JT6 or the external rotation axis set as the spin axis, and synchronizes movement of the spin axis with the other axes (JT1 – JT5) towards the set point. In short, expands the normal motion range for a robot’s JT6 or external rotation axis.

2. Standard Spin Control: Functions the same as Simple Spin Control but without synchronizing movement of the spin axis with the other axes (JT1 – JT5). Uses special commands/instructions for spin control in operation.

Spin Control is more often used in welding robots but can also be used as a safeguard to keep palletizing robots from tearing up the harness on the 4th axis.

DIY Robotic Palletizing for your business?
It is not as hard as you think.

We can provide a simple system that can grow with your business.
We provide assistance throughout the installation and afterwards
A robot palletizer is very inexpensive to deploy when compared to the cost of labor

What are the conditions?
You already have a conveyor where the finished product arrives
And you are currently stacking product by hand. Labor is scarce.

Just set a robot there with the right End-of-Arm Tool, put a safety fence around it and you are done!

Many companies sell very expensive packages for palletizing that includes complicated tooling, integrated conveyor systems, pallet feeders, tie sheet feeders and light curtain systems. The EP180 Palletizer is the same robot core you find with the best palletizers. It is a basic system for anyone wanting to get a robot palletizer and want it to grow with your business. Some of our customers were having trouble getting and keeping temporary labor to stack pallets. The BTS Economy Robot Palletizer Workcell with Kawasaki CP180L is the answer for companies with temporary labor problems. The robot can be installed in smaller spaces where there is not enough real estate for a larger palletizer.

Once you have the robot, you need to locate it near your conveyor and then build your own guarding.
Or we can help you do everything you need to fully integrate the robot into your production line.

BPW180 Palletizing Sales Brochure

Here is a view of what your palletizing workcell will look like. This robot is mounted to a 3-foot base which puts the robot in the perfect position for most conveyor systems. The pallet shown is at a height of 3 feet but the actual work zone is much closer to the floor. To determine the final location of the pallet, you add the tooling height (about 16 inches) and the conveyor height (about 16 inches). This allows the CP180 to make a pallet around 8-feet tall.
