Automation for Plastics and Containers

Sorting, Picking, Packing, and Palletizing

Everything in the plant runs much more smoothly. More bottles are being produced, while the pace seems slower with a 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 and any robot systems installed must be not only flexible but allow for quick changeover.  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 bottle case packing, sorting, and palletizing. Robotics adds a high amount of reliability, flexibility, and even mobility to these applications.

Eliminating the manual process of picking and packing bottles

  • improves worker safety by decreasing repetitive motion injuries.
  • reduces cost by simplifying the process and changeovers.
  • allows for the ability to better plan for product accumulation.
  • increases quality -more consistent controls of packing bottles.
  • improves throughput and line speeds
  • adds consistency to packing certain varieties of products.
  • brings straightforward programming of new products.

Robot systems can be flexible enough to handle various sizes of containers or cases. If needed, the robot could be reallocated to another part of the facility if the workload changes.
