Automated Material Handling System (Fanuc Based)

Operation Overview:

This automated material handling system palletized stacks of die-cut cartons. The Fanuc articulated arm robot utilized a Fork and Clamp style end of arm tool to pick and place the product from the infeed conveyor onto the pallet. The Fanuc had the reach and ability to pick the stack from either side so that it could nest the product closely together to optimize the pallet stack pattern. The conveyor system had built in accumulation zones to allow for system interruptions like an operator restocking the pallet or slipsheet hopper. This system met all of the customers needs and requirements. The customer was very satisfied with the increased safety and efficiency achieved thru this custom automation.
