The Robot is placed in line with other packaging machinery, downstream from CME’s making machine, the Autocone. The robot will be fitted with a stepper or servo motor for a 4th axis of movement and a gripper assembly for picking one joint at a time.
The robot communicates with a camera vision system to ensure effective picking of joints from the conveyor belt and subsequent placement into final trays.
Currently the product is manually picked and placed into the respective carton ready for packaging. This is time consuming, labour intensive, has a risk of error and inconsistency of product placement. The current process also requires training for the staff and coverage for staff absences.
Further savings are made by the removal of manual handling, as this has led to a reduction in ongoing training for personnel, and the choice of the Igus Robot, which when compared to an alternative SCARA robot equivalent provides a further cost saving. estimated at £6k per unit.
