Packaging Portion Cups into Cases

 
 

In this automated system, a FANUC M-421iA robot packages cups directly from a filler into cases for shipment. The system can process up to 1000 cups per minute. The robot gripper has 2 independent sections allowing it to pack 1 large case or 2 smaller cases at once. The robot also places separator sheets between layers in the case. The robot controller is completely enclosed in the base of the robot and is cooled by air conditioning.
