BREWERTON, NY – Schneider Packaging Equipment Co., Inc., specializing in end-of-line solutions for case packing and palletizing needs, unveils the Robox Vi, the latest in portable, vision-guided robotic solutions for orienting and packing molded bottles, jars, and caps at Pack Expo 2006, McCormick Place, Chicago, October 29 – November 2, Booth #S-2259.
Schneider combines their proven robotic case packing and palletizing system technology with the latest in vision intelligence technology, (Vi technology). The combination of the robot with vision in one machine eliminates the need for product orientation prior to the case packer. The Robox Vi uses a FANUC robotic arm with integrated vision in a state-of-the-art case packer. The Robox Vi will identify, pick up and orient random bottles or other randomly oriented items off a conveyor, arrange them into a pattern, then pack the items directly into corrugated cases. Optional configurations include diverting blow molded objects traveling down the conveyor to a quality control area prior to case packing. The Robox Vi provides fast job changes, and packs up to 60 bottles/products per minute. With its Plug-And-Play features, the small 6’ x 8’ footprint is so portable it can be transported by fork lift to any line at any time.
The Robox Vi is easy to use and is ideal for lower volume blow mold lines that produce 20 to 60 bottles per minute. It is an affordable option that will quickly return its investment in time and labor savings, readily bringing automation to a line that previously relied heavily on manual labor. A Robox Vi will address packaging needs in many industries including: beverage, food, plastics, paper, pharmaceutical and personal care products. The top loading Robox Vi runs with or with out plastic bags in the case and with or without inserting layer sheets.
