Food industry trends for smaller pack sizes have resulted in demand for technology to maintain output speed and tonnage throughput with the dexterity to accumulate products into layers and in different orientations to fit shelf-ready cases. We have recently installed a Delta Style unit for a producer of savoury dips supplying a leading supermarket chain. This high speed pick and place technology – capable of picking up lighter objects – accumulated two layers of three dip tubs into a shallow shelf-ready box. For pack variations multi functioning end effector tools to suit bespoke applications from tubs of dips, packs of biscuits to bags of crisps, offer flexibility to simply change tool to suit the particular production line. In preparation for new and emerging shelf ready packaging trends our technology is designed and manufactured with in-built re-programmable systems and transferrable end effectors.
