ROBOTIC PACKING AUTOMATION

Packing automation is a key ingredient to a winning formula in any manufacturing operation. From primary product packaging to secondary and tertiary outer packaging, all sectors can benefit from the implementation of robotic packaging automation.

Manufacturing challenges such as rising production and staff costs can make it difficult to remain competitive. Robotic automation provides a solution, offering cost and time savings by supplementing the human workforce and automating unfavourable tasks, helping take steps towards maximising a company’s staff while enhancing productivity. Robots in automated packaging also have the added benefit of limiting waste through the repeatable execution of processes with consistent results, providing a measurable output.

Robotic Palletizing, Case Packing & Pouch filling

From automated case packing systems, to pouch filling machines and palletizers, packing automation enables manufacturers to boost production, improve quality and enhance production efficiency.

Robotic Palletizing

Robotic Palletizer

Palletising large quantities of inventory? Having an efficient palletising system in place is paramount to operational success. Robotic Palletisers can work around the clock, boosting end-of-line efficiency.

Packing Automation with Cobots

The rise of Collaborative robots opens new packaging opportunities, enabling companies of all sizes to benefit. Experiencing a surge in popularity within automated packaging, they are becoming a staple of modern manufacturing as we move into the era of the ‘Smart Factory’, a more flexible approach to manufacturing through the digitisation of equipment and processes. Their introduction into smart manufacturing, alongside the rest of the automation processes, opens new possibilities for manufacturers, bringing benefits in productivity, efficiency, quality and customised on-demand production.

Benefits of Cobot Automated Packaging

Though they unlock a number of their own benefits, the rationale of implementing more traditional industrial robot systems also applies to Collaborative Robots, which because of their small size and flexibility, are enabling SMEs to improve their competitiveness through automated packaging like never before. SMEs are now able to reap benefits which were previously hard to attain such as increased safety, automation flexibility, ease of use and better utilisation of operators.

Flexibility and Control

Move the robots between lines and store multiple programs for quick changeovers, offering on-demand production.

Improved Safety

Designed to work collaboratively with humans, they can be implemented onto lines within close proximity of operators as a means of supplementing the human workforce.

Traceability

Track and record data, they are capable of providing businesses with more measurable manufacturing data.

Programming

Presenting a more user-friendly interface than traditional industrial robots, programming is made intuitive which gives more control to the end user.

Payback

Due to their flexibility, full utilisation of the equipment is made easier, resulting in a faster payback, particularly for non-value-added processes such as packaging.

Zero Touch

Offering new packaging automation possibilities, they support the shift toward a ‘Zero Touch’ approach to manufacturing,

Reducing Errors

Built in quality control measures such as barcode / QR code readers can ensure complete accuracy, eliminating any potential for errors.
