Layer-picking technology provides broad flexibility
August 3, 2012
A new Layer Picking System from RMT Robotics (www.rmtrobotics.com) uses a state-of-the-art, patent-pending Layer Picking tool. With the combination of vacuum and clamping technology, the new tooling has the capability of picking 95% of consumer products in package formats including corrugate or boxboard cases, shrink wrap products, bottles, tubs and open trays. Patterns with voids and tier sheets are also handled with ease.
RMT’s Layer Picking System has the capability of picking multiple layers at once and to pick and place entire pallet loads, allowing for simple and secure inventory replenishment, especially with unstable loads.
The new tooling provides exceptional throughput while providing unparalleled space efficiency making it ideal for food, beverage and consumer goods products. Several Layer Picking Tools are currently being supplied as part of the case and layer picking project for one of the largest beer distributors in North America.
