Schneider Packaging's Robox Palletizes Two Pallets from One Station
BREWERTON, NY (May, 2008) -Schneider Packaging Equipment Company now offers customized versions of the Robox, the ultimate in plug and play robotic palletizing, to increase productivity and save costs even in less than ideal conditions or footprints.
Robox's plug and play functionality offers flexibility, high throughput, and simple operation. Robox can be designed to palletize virtually any product, including rigid cases, bags, cartons, or trayed products at up to 30 picks per minute or more, (depending on product) and requires only air and electricity to operate.
Palletizing from a single infeed, the Robox automatically rotates between two stations, loads pallets and comes preprogrammed to palletize each SKU pallet configuration. Higher through put can be achieved with an auto pallet dispenser and over/under conveyors which quickly swap out a full pallet for an empty one.
The machine's small footprint reduces floor space requirements while retaining all the rugged durability that is the hallmark of Schneider equipment. The Robox offers a user-friendly set-up utilizing a FANUC robotic arm with optimized Human Machine Interface that simplifies changeover and eliminates programming. A standard ethernet port allows remote monitoring and diagnosis.
Robox is perfect for entry level palletizing or for integrating into a more heavily automated line including discharge systems and automatic guided vehicles. The plug and play unit is mounted to a single rigid base frame and is easily relocated.
Schneider manufactures a complete line of case packers, tray packers, and robotic palletizing systems. Schneider also offers a variety of ancillary equipment such as case erectors, cartoners, conveyors, pallet dispensers, shuttle cars, automatic guided carts, and elevators that can easily be integrated with coding/labeling equipment, RFID / barcode scanners, weight checking, and stretch or shrink wrapping equipment to provide a complete turnkey system solution. Some of their specialty markets include the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, paper, replication, industrial, and personal care industries.
Whatever the requirements, Schneider works to provide the best solution for any unique need. Schneider Packaging is an Authorized System Integrator for FANUC Robotics.
