FANUC and Roth Technik for Kunstoff-Packungen AG
This automation job required placing plastic injection molded bottles into trays with individual cavities designed to keep each part separate from the others. In addition, the customer wanted a foam sheet to be placed in between the trays as they are layered on top of each other, to maintain a clean separation between the parts in one tray and the bottom of the tray on top. Normally, this work is done manually.
The solution provided by Switzerland-based Roth Technik involved two FANUC robots. The first was the six-axes M-10iD/10L with a payload of 10 kg, and the second was a four-axes SR-6iA robot with a 6 kg payload.
The solution enabled Kunstoff-Packungen to run the manufacturing line autonomously, with autonomous operation for at least 8 hours at full speed, achieving cycle times of 0.8 seconds. Significant space savings were achieved because of the compact footprint of the solution.
