The Taropak 2019 Fairs came to an end. Thank you all, who visited our stand, and who had a conversation with us about process automation both at their companies, and in a broader context. Regardless of the industries and the unique nature of particular production plants, all our guests agree about one thing: automation is unavoidable, and the dynamics of its development is and will be increasing. We hope that our fair offer matches this vision and has encouraged you to seek for modern solutions which promote improved efficiency and production conditions.

This year, we presented an application, which simulates a palletizing station installed at a manufacturing plant of a large global manufacturer of consumer goods (household chemicals, medications, and personal hygiene). The core element of the system is a Fanuc R 2000 165 F robot equipped with a work head designed to pick up a group of carton packages and place them on pallets. In the manufacturing circumstances, the head additionally places cardboard spacers between the product layers.

A characteristic feature of the system presented is its flexibility. The work head picks up packages of more than ten sizes, being delivered to the station at different speeds. Each package format is placed on the pallet according to a different template. The head refits itself between the templates automatically. The robot is equipped with a DCS (Dual Check Safety) system, consisting of an advanced position and speed controller. The repeatability of the machine’s operation reaches ±0,2mm. The capacity of the palletizing station, adapted to the capacity of the production line, is more than 1000 cardboard boxes per hour. The OEE factor achieved is 97%.
