Light Manufacturer Reduces Operating Costs with FANUC Robotic Palletizer

Customer Problem

As a grass roots plant, the customer needed to completely automate their end-of-line packaging and palletizing to handle a significant increase in production. The requirement was to automate six tank fill lines with multiple SKU’s and merge all finished product into a common transportation/accumulation lane before palletizing and stretch wrapping. They were interested in a FANUC robotic palletizer based on the FANUC’s reputation.

Adaptec Robotic Palletizer Solution

We provided a completely integrated solution that doubled production and output.

Tanks are filled and fed from six production fill lines and merged into a common transportation/accumulation conveyor. All carton products are scanned and sent to one of three infeed lanes.

All tanks are accumulated and picked one row at a time by a Fanuc robotic palletizer with a vacuum end-of-arm tool and palletized on one of four palletizing zones. After palletizing, all palletized loads are indexed into a Wulftec stretch wrapper for stretch wrapping before a final label is applied. Now completely automated, the facility substantially reduced operating and labor costs.
