Industrial automation has become an area in full development and of great importance for all industrial sectors since it allows to improve the productivity of companies and the quality of their products. Currently, factories (i.e., small, or medium) must implement new technologies to increase its production and provide qualified products to enter with force in regional markets and nationals. This article shows the design and start up of an automatic palletizer which will have a manual mode in which each actuator in the system can be operated independently; and an automatic mode that will organize the input elements in the previously established way. For companies that produce in batches, is important to reduce storage spaces in warehouses, dispose of their products in an orderly and practical way for their subsequent dispatch. This last process must be effective and fast so as not to generate inconveniences in the delivery of orders to buyers. Our project is focused to the footwear sector, especially, how to seek greater development and performance of these companies where the packaging time of their products can be optimized so that it can be used in other tasks within the company. Also, the result of this investigation shows the engineering process carried out to obtain a prototype of a functional, automatic, productive, quality, and economic product that meets the customer's requirements. Improvements that will do and future work are included too.
