Complex requirements and a wide range of pack sizes made easy with CR Automation Robotics
Heinz Wattie's Robotic Palletising
Heinz Wattie's needed a solution to palletise 30 different types of products from three separate lines in their central food processing facility. These products travel from a 150m conveyor system through the factory to two lines running at once to mix and match them onto the pallets. The process includes barcode scanning, sorting, palletising, stretchwrapping, print-and-apply pallet labelling and ERP integration.
The CR Solution
Working with our strategic partner DSK Engineering, we installed two ABB robots with a multi-zone grippers, custom designed for the wide range in pack sizes. CR Automation developed the PLC, robot, HMI and safety programs. We also provided the complete electrical design and installation.
A safe, reliable, easy to operate, fully integrated carton palletising system in a demanding high speed application.
