Automation for Plastics - Film and Containers

Picking, Packing, and Palletizing

Everything in the plant runs much more smoothly. More bottles are being produced, while the pace seems slower with the reduction in complexity in the system.

The plastics & container industry is very dynamic with line changeovers every time product orders are filled (can be dozens a day). Add to that, a demand to meet end consumer needs for varying sizes in product selection. Today’s systems must allow for quick changeovers.  Motion Controls Robotics understands these issues from working with various companies in the industry, and we design our systems to accommodate each customer’s needs.

Your dynamic environment may seem like a complication when deciding to add robotics to your facility, but it is actually the perfect reason to look into automating case packing, sorting, and palletizing. Robotics adds a high amount of reliability, flexibility, and even mobility to these applications.
