Pick & place systems include robotic arm installations utilising their "Partner" relationship with Fanuc through to their own mechanical 3-axis unit.
All systems are servo driven and can achieve a throughput of up to 120 packs per minute, placing items into plastic or cardboard trays and containers.
Packs are conveyed into the cell and accumulated into the desired arrangement prior to being picked up. With a payload of up to 4.5Kg, if required, a complete layer can be transferred at once resulting in a high performance, reliable system with as few operations as possible per tray or box.
As well as packing trays and boxes, variations allow for the automatic filling and indexing of dollies, trolleys and carts. Typical systems include a pack accumulation system and an automatic supermarket dolly indexing system with a Fanuc robotic arm loading the cart with bags of produce.
To enhance pick & place systems, state of the art vision solutions, installations can identify a variety of pack characteristics in preparation for picking, these include colour, size, product, weight and even orientation. Because of the flexibility of the pick & place systems, virtually anything that is of a regular shape and size can be picked and placed.
