To gain efficiences, robots are being used more often in more and more plants for case packing and palletizing because of the increased throughput, vision and cost savings today’s robotic technology offers. These same plants are finding that human laborers can work along with robots, with proper guarding, as they each perform a task for which they are best suited.
In partnership with robotic automation provider Motion Controls Robotics,and Combi Packaging Systems, Hughes Enterprises offers a Robotic Pick and Place Packing option to fully automate case packing functions that may require verifying lot or serialization numbers, varying pack counts, making retail ready packages, or automating tasks that are difficult or dangerous for humans.
For greater versatility and greater throughput, companies’ existing Ergopack Hand Packing Stations can be retrofitted with this robotic packing unit. The Fanuc robot can be used during times when hand packing is unavailable or illogical.
Combi’s robotic hand pack stations are used by a wide range of industries. Robot Packing Adds Flexibility to Hand Pack Station with Reduced labor expenditure and a higher rate of throughput can run 24 hours a day.
Improved traceability of products, enabling better tracking and isolation of contaminated products.
Meet Retail Packaging Variations by varying pack counts, variety packs, and retail ready packages.
Greater precision and consistency, minimizing wastage and reducing product loss due to damage.
Removal of human integration in hazardous environments, and reducing workplace injuries.
