Each time placement of one product level completes, the table is lowered one level, eliminating the need for the robot to move vertically and making possible high-capacity performance of 2,300 cases per hour (robot: A1600III).
Okura's solution boosted capacity by combining a newly developed carriage table with a new robotic hand. The new system offers excellent cost performance by utilizing the customer's existing robotic equipment.
The system's new hand picks up products by applying suction from above and from the side. This approach makes it possible to pack products without any gap between them, dramatically improving the stability of palletized stacks.
The equipment can also be used as a high-capacity depalletizing system.
