Robot systems integrator, Pacepacker, has introduced an economical robotic palletising system for dairy manufacturers which is half the cost of a new system – the Blu-Robot.

A pre-owned Blu-Robot palletiser is ideal for companies with low production rates, seasonal manufacturers who cannot justify the cost of a new system, or producers wanting to automate their manual processes for the first time. Typically incorporating a high quality ABB robotic arm, the Blu-Robot is approximately 35% of the way through its expected 100,000 operational hour lifespan and offers greater throughput, waste reduction and product quality improvements.

To withstand harsh wash down environments, the robot is safeguarded with improved sealing, motor and connector protection.  With numerous successful installs across the food manufacturing sector, the Blu-Robot can be fitted with numerous end-effectors, including a clamp style gripper for picking up netted products such as cheese, a bale arm gripper for picking up retail trays and supermarket crates,  and a vacuum gripper to pick up single or multiple boxes.

“Many UK dairy manufacturers understand the benefits a palletising robot can provide in terms of fast and accurate stacking but for some, new systems have often been cost prohibitive” says Pacepacker MD Dennis Allison.  To address this, the Blu-Robot palletising solution has been developed which is half the cost of a new system.  It comes fully checked, tested & repainted, with a 12 month parts warranty together with readily available service & spares back up” adds Dennis.
