Robotic carton/case loader debuts high speed pick and place applications
Schneider Packaging Equipment Company (schneiderequip.com) introduces the new high-speed top loading Robotic Vertical Carton/Case Loader (RVCL) equipped with FANUC Robotics delta robots for accumulating, top load carton and case loading, in high-speed pick and place applications.
Designed to handle multiple products and packing combinations, the RVCL uses delta robots and vision to locate, inspect, orient and nest product for high-speed top carton or case loading. The system is capable of loading standard RSC cases, HSC cases, top load cartons, and display trays. Product can be loaded horizontally for bulk packing or vertically for high impact point of sale display trays. Equipped with advanced vision guided robotics, even products with a complex shape can be tightly packed, minimizing packaging materials and maximizing sustainability.
“Our customers demand innovative, flexible, efficient and easy to own solutions that make them stand out from their competition, and Schneider delivers,” says Barry Rinaldi, Director of Business Development for Schneider Packaging. “Delta robots are inherently more flexible than gantry style pick and place systems and have a smaller footprint. In addition, delta robots have fewer moving parts and are extremely fast and reliable, making them a compact, economic, reliable top loading case packing solution.”
The system is designed for very high efficiency (OEE), rapid changeovers, simple maintenance, lower total cost of ownership, smaller footprint, and sustainable operations. The RVCL’s design easily accommodates additional modules/robots for increased production. Additionally, Schneider can supply case and carton erecting, sealing, robotic palletizing, labeling, verification, stretch wrapping, quality control (x-ray, metal detect, check weigh) for fully integrated end-of-line solutions bringing primary packaged product right to the truck or warehouse.
