ABB has a wide range of robots designed for primary and secondary packaging for the food, beverage and consumer packaged goods areas.
A seamless and clean transition with minimal human contact from process and picking to primary packaging is a pre-requisite. High speed 4 axis delta robots and the more traditional small 6 axis robots combine to ensure desired throughput and high quality.
Higher payload delta and 4 or 6 axis robots then complete the packing process by placing the primary packed product into the secondary packaging which can be cases, trays, crates or shelf ready packaging.
Should throughput permit the packing robot can even stack the cases if required hence enabling further savings on cost and floor space.
