V30P Robotic Case Packer/Palletizer Reduces Required Floor Space for End-of-Line Packaging

V30P Vertical Robotic Case Packer with Integrated Palletizer CellNovember 2009, Blacksburg, VA — Designed specifically for packaging facilities that have limited floor space, the ESS Technologies, Inc. Model V30P combines a vertical robotic case packer with an integrated palletizer cell to provide multi-function end-of-line packaging in a very small footprint. The packaging cell integrates a FANUC robot, an ESS-designed end-of-arm tool (EOAT), a palletizing cell and Allen Bradley controls using the CompactLogix® platform with a color touchscreen display. The palletizing cell may include tier/deck sheet placement and an automatic pallet dispenser with flow-through pallet conveyor to fully automate the end-of-line packaging process. A fully automated V30P system occupies less than 16’ x 9’ of floor space.

Application Notes

The case packer portion of the system can handle a range of products, including cartons, bottles, sachets, bundles, etc. ESS designs the infeed of the case packer to automatically collate products into the correct pack pattern. Once collated, the robot with custom EOAT loads the product into a case. Cases are sealed using either tape or glue and conveyed directly into the palletizing portion of the cell. As cases accumulate, the V30P automatically palletizes the cases. After the accumulated cases are palletized, the system returns to case packing. The flow of pallets through the system may be manual or automated. Optional pallet dispensers index empty pallets into place while the full pallet is conveyed out of the cell via an optional pallet conveyor. The addition of an integrated pallet stretch wrapper creates a complete end-of-line packaging solution that requires very little operator involvement.

A number of FANUC robots can be specified, depending on the payload requirements of the application. The EOAT may be vacuum-style, mechanical gripper-style, or a hybrid design that includes both vacuum and gripper elements. Quick release connections on the EOAT allow for fast changeover (under five minutes if only the EOAT changes). The overall system has been meticulously engineered to reduce the number of required spare parts and simplify maintenance. Open access to the system allows for ease of inspection and cleaning.

A number of compelling reasons exist that make robotic palletizing solutions the ideal equipment for a wide variety of packaging scenarios. These reasons include reliability, flexibility and increased productivity with a small equipment footprint.

As an authorized FANUC Robotics system integrator, ESS Technologies, Inc. has the expertise needed to integrate the V30P into existing and new packaging systems to meet any application. Superior design and turnkey systems integration from ESS Technologies, Inc. make the V30P Vertical Robotic Case Packer/Palletizer the ideal solution for case packing applications in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetic and consumer product industries.
