Pace Mechanical Handling Steps Up in Robotic Palletising With Yaskawa

Pace Mechanical Handling, the family owned Lincolnshire business that specialises in robotic palletising, packing and handling systems in the food and aggregates industry, has selected MOTOMAN robots from Yaskawa as the preferred robot for its robotic automation projects. “The main reasons for a move towards MOTOMAN robots were ease of programming, speed performance and the choices of communication protocol that are available for the series of MOTOMAN robots,” according to Nick Cesare, managing director of Pace Mechanical Handling. In addition, a key consideration for robotic palletising is the combination of available working envelope and stacking height and here the dedicated series of MOTOMAN MPL palletising robots meets the exact needs for Pace Mechanical Handling.

Yaskawa UK and Pace Mechanical Handling have developed a standard programming structure for robotic palletising that can be used across different cell configurations and palletising patterns, which means that programming time and installation times can be dramatically reduced thereby reducing the investment level for the end user.

Pace Mechanical Handling will be exhibiting at The British Potato Show 2011, Hall 2, Stand 403, held at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate on 24 and 25 November 2011. This is an important event for the potato industry in the UK and concentrates on many aspects of potato handling and automation. On display will be a demonstration of Pace’s specific market offer for the potato handling industry, which includes a MOTOMAN MPL100 palletising robot.
