Robot & Mini-Mover Conveyors Automate Box Filling
No job losses! This automated box-fill station simply took over the tedious job of counting and organizing piece parts while loading shipping boxes. It’s doing the work of those three people, who are now free to do more challenging projects during the work shift. Each station handles seven (7) boxes in process, which are filled by overhead robotics. Four Mini-Mover LP Series conveyors manage the box speed and transport through the station.
This box fill-station is one of several on the plant floor. The company produces thousands of plastic injection molded parts each day, so automating the box fill process is a huge daily savings of time and labor.
