Robotic Cartoner Infeed Reduces Required Space and Increases Productivity
Press release date: August 1, 2011
Initially designed as an infeed option for the ESS SC Series Automatic Horizontal Cartoners, the robotic infeed system is a stand-alone robotic cell that also easily integrates with cartoners in existing packaging lines. Product may be fed to the robotic cell using laning conveyors, should product collation be required, or via bowl feeders, flexible infeed conveyors or product magazines. The LR Mate 200iC robot has a payload capacity of 5kg, and six axes provide greater flexibility and range of motion. The robot can handle infeed speeds up to 400 per minute with multiple products per pick, or up to 80 cycles per minute, allowing the robotic cartoner infeed to reliably maintain production rates for high speed cartoning systems. The EOAT design uses quick release connections to provide a very fast EOAT changeover (less than five minutes for most EOAT).
