The SABA AUTOMATION Palletizer range is amongst the most appreciated by virtue of a high production output, great efficiency and the quality of components employed. The best results have been achieved with the development of the ZEUS Robot.

Robot Palletizer ZEUS SABA for industrial paper rolls.

This solution guarantees ultimate speed in terms of cycles per minute, which means that it can be used for lines with a very high production output. Particular care has been paid towards design of the pick-up implements both for unpacked and packed Tissue products. These special grippers grasp the product without causing any kind of deformation; this drastically improves quality of palletizing. The gripper is motorized with the robot’s fifth interpolated axis to ensure adequate handling of such a delicate product as is Tissue paper. The size changeover system adopted is much more accurate than the typical pneumatic systems so that the gripper does not squash the product. Thanks to this system, the operator running the cell or management system can adjust which type of grip is needed and the intensity required for the incoming product by giving a simple software command to the robot. The latter thus adapts to the job to do.

SABA AUTOMATION is highly specialised  in the field of Tissue to offer end-of-line systems especially designed for this sector


The SABA AUTOMATION Palletizer range also includes BD14 Cartesian Robots; these are the outcome of twenty years of experience and their use is recommended in the most diverse industrial sectors. Compact and particularly efficient, they are the ideal solution for lines handling paper napkins, paper handkerchiefs and interfolded paper towels. To complete our end-of-line range, we offer fully automatic solutions for pallet packaging, such as Pallet Stretch-Film Wrapping Machines and Labelling Systems. Management Software and operator-Industrial PC interface have been optimised to make line operation easier still and allow for better control over all end-of-line stages. This software can be interfaced with the latest management systems for data exchange, etc.

The SABA Automation programme for handling different product formats is the same for both ZEUS robots and the BD14. Thanks to the combination of ZEUS robot and Software, SABA AUTOMATION robotized palletising systems offer more advantages in terms of cycle time reduction, adaptability to different products and elimination of downtime. Operators no longer have to deal with heavy palletizing work and no longer have to perform size changeover operations since a production order can be called up and uploaded in an instant. The Tissue sector highlights all the potential of SABA AUTOMATION robotized end-of-line systems as elements capable of increasing the production output and improving efficiency of the entire process.

The words and direct experience of Alessandro Pollini, Sales and Marketing Director: “Industrial production can be defined as efficient even when the end-of-line activities prevent delays affecting the production cycle, as well as bottlenecks. This is why automating the end-of-line process is an essential factor for increasing production output. It not only makes operators work better and with less fatigue but also allows you to become more competitive and, last but not least, to offer a well-packaged product that is ready to be shipped. 2018 is SABA’S thirteenth year of activity but the experience of the founder members dates further back. The company activity began back in 2005 and was since then also focused on the Tissue sector. Robotized systems with ZEUS anthropomorphic robots were thus designed. They have proved to be the only solution for the specific requirements that the paper industry wants their suppliers to fulfil. Today, 50% of our turnover comes from the Tissue sector, which is an important indicator of the quality of the work done by SABA AUTOMATION over the past years”.

Over the last ten years, we have become a reference in the Tissue sector
