Rapid robots from Pacepacker. (Packaging Equipment).
To enable greater speed, Pacepacker has developed multiple bag handling end effectors. These units pick up more than one bag at a time before moving out over the pallet and placing each bag individually into position.
Stacking rates of up to twenty-five bags per minute have been achieved on 25kg bags. Traditionally such speeds were only possible with large high level palletisers taking one product at a time. But the robot cell not only takes up a fraction of the floor space of the high level machine, it can also handle more than one product at a time giving flexibility for the producer.
