Robotic packaging system sorts, stacks, packages and palletizes fiberglass insulation material.
Objective: Replace existing manual packaging system with a new PLC-driven automated packaging system to package different products at variable packaging rates. Some products are stacked and placed in cartons, then the cartons stacked on pallets and secured together to the pallet. Other products are stacked directly on pallets with corrugated end sleeves, center sleeve, poly bag cover, top protection tray installed on the stack and secured together to the pallet. Robots with custom end effectors re-feed and palletize product.
