Robotics

Ergopack Robotic Pick and Place Packing Station

Increased global competition is driving leaner operating efficiency in today’s manufacturing plants. To gain efficiences, robots are being used more frequently 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 workers can work right alongside 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, Combi Packaging Systems offers a Robotic Pick and Place Packing feature to fully automate case packing operations that may require verifying lot or serialization numbers, varying pack counts, creating retail ready packages, or automating tasks that are difficult or unsafe for humans.

For greater flexibility 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 impractical.

RCE Robotic Random Case Erector

The RCE Robotic Random Case Erector combines a FANUC M20iA/20 six-axis robot with multiple case magazines and a bottom flap folder with integrated 3M tape head. The FANUC robot has a flexible end of arm tool to pick and erect multiple cases, eliminating the need for multiple erectors, the floor space they consume and costly changeover downtime. The standard system features one to six Combi powered case magazines, accommodating six different case sizes, project dependent. The RCE Random Case Erector System includes:
