ROBOLOAD-PRO™ AUTOMATIC LOADING & UNLOADING SYSTEMS
For high speed loading of lites in series mode (long runs of equal sizes) the ROBOLOAD-PRO is a robust high performance solution that can lift singles or pairs or multiples presented in racks and load these within a cycle time of under 15 seconds.
In standard, there are at least two rack loading positions, each mounted within its own safety enclosure. Guarding is organised in such a way that access to the robot working area is automatically physically blocked whenever a rack change is being performed.
All access points are fully interlocked and will cause the robot to E-Stop if breached. A controlled shutdown or isolation procedure is provided to provide safe access when required.
ROBOLOAD-PRO comes complete with its own roller conveyor, where lites can be loaded from above or optionally coated-side-up where the ROBOLOAD-PRO™ vacuum frame passes through the conveyor rollers. It includes controls to accept multiple lites loaded in a row and to ‘peel’ single lites from the row and feed them singly into a SEAMMAXX-PRO seaming line or other production process.
Offloading applications can be programmed for single or multiple lites, including pre-indexing and row building prior to lifting, and offloaded lites can be deposited into racks or cases, or on to other transport conveyors in either vertical or horizontal planes.
