Syracuse, New York. October 25, 2023. Schneider Packaging Equipment Company, Inc. (“Schneider”), a Pacteon Company, announces they are entering the robotic high-speed palletizing market through a strategic licensing agreement with the ITW Hartness Division. After the Hartness Division’s strategic decision to reposition its product portfolio, Schneider began key conversations around setting up a licensing agreement for the Hartness Division’s high-speed robotic palletizing offerings to ensure the ability for Schneider to offer on future projects. Also included in the agreement is the ability for Schneider to support already commissioned systems by Hartness.
Specifically included in the agreement is The Hartness High-Speed Layer Palletizing Tool. In anticipation of this, Schneider spent the last few months completing training at Hartness and is now able to offer the solution to the market. Schneider, an industry leader in end-of-line automation, FANUC Certified Servicing Integrator, and PMMI Certified Trainers has been providing robotic palletizing solutions for over three decades. With the addition of the High-Speed Layer Palletizing Tool they are now able to offer their world-class solutions to an even larger portion of the palletizing market. Mike Odom, CEO of Pacteon Group said “When the opportunity arose for us to create this formal agreement to leverage Hartness IP in the high-speed palletizing segment we reacted quickly to support the market with these additional high-quality tools. With the Hartness tools added to the ESS and Schneider Palletizing Solutions, we can support all conceivable palletizing applications.”
