Case packing robotic automation system

Bottling Palletizing

PSA has created a fully automated case packing and palletizing system designed to process difficult-to-handle dairy bottles at a rate of over 100,000 bottles per 8 hour shift. This success utilized 2 new ABB IRB460 robots with custom tooling designed and built by PSA. The system is fed by a custom bottle conveyor system which was woven through several densely packed equipment rooms using both hanging and elevator conveyor. The bottles arrive via conveyor at the first robot, which was able to lift, move, and place them in cardboard boxes. These boxes then moved through a case sealing machine to the second robot, which palletized the packed and sealed boxes. By automating this system, the packaging rate increased and the risk of injuries from manually packing, sealing, and stacking boxes decreased.
