The solution relieves humans from the laborious task of stacking boxes; it is being showcased at PackPlus 2019 Exhibition at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
Alstrut India, a Chennai-based company offering robotics and industrial automation solutions, has chosen PackPlus as a platform to launch its new product cobotizur – a modular plug & play robotic palletizing solution.
The company says cobotizur has applications specifically in the packaging industry i.e. FMCG, food and pharmaceutical.
The 2019 edition of PackPlus, the comprehensive packaging and supply chain show, began on 28 August at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The exhibition will continue till 31 August 2019.
Anuj Bihani, Managing Director, Alstrut India Private Limited, stated: “Cobotizur is a flexible palletizing system that combines a palletizing cell with a collaborative robot and it provides end-users the features needed to quickly set up a robot for palletizing boxes or cartons on a standard pallet. Not only does it relieve humans from the laborious task of stacking boxes, it enhances the efficiencies of the operators and hence increases throughput.”
The key features of Cobotizur is quick installation, vertical 7th axis, minimal footprint, modular easy to move, continuous operation, easy programming, save to use and minimal maintenance.
Designed for Universal Robots
The company says Cobotizur can be integrated with the UR10 or UR10e collaborative robot from Universal Robots to provide the user a collaborative robot palletizer, automating palletizing of carton boxes on to a pallet.
The cobotizur is shipped as an all-inclusive unit, inclusive of a vertical 7th axis, a custom designed vacuum gripper to grip carton boxes of varying sizes and weights and a vacuum pump.
Easy to install
Deploying the cobotizur requires absolutely no expertise or programming knowledge. A simple one-time three-point calibration is all that is needed. Using the intuitive touch-panel interface, users can in a few minutes enter the dimensions and weight of all SKU, storing over 200 SKU types. It has a compact footprint, enabling installation at existing site with minimal change in layout. The modular design also enables the palletizing solution to be relocated.
System integrators or end-users worldwide just need to follow five simple steps to deploy a safe palletizing solution at the end of line in just a few hours. The ‘platform approach’ of providing a plug and produce equipment, empowers users to now deploy a simplified palletizing solution which earlier was perceived as a complex project, the company notes.
Alstrut has delivered projects across industry verticals, including automobile, auto-component, electrical, electronics, FMCG, food, packaging, pharma, etc. Its solutions include automated/semi-automated assembly lines, conveyors, workstations, end of line automation, etc.
