In our pick and place systems, robots equipped with vision can detect and handle products as they are moved down a conveyor. Typical operations during product transfer include sorting, orienting, and collating. Historically these operations have been completed using manual labor, replacing these tasks with robotics improves performance and delivers improved overall equipment efficiency.
Unlike hand packing, robots never get tired and are available 24/7 for 365 days a year, year in year out. Advances in robot and vision technology not only provide the end user with increases in speed, but also a major leap in reliability over hard automation which relies on complex mechanical processes. Fewer parts translates to less to go wrong and a shorter time to repair. The “smarter” robots can simply be re-configured to handle changes without costly restructuring, by changing out end of arm tools or applying vision-guided technology and advanced programming that is always product specific.
All systems can be configured for dusty, hot, washdown, humid or cold room environments.
