Pick-and-place for continuously operating spiral cooler

Challenge

  • Many products are filled using high-performance systems and then require cooling
  • As they are to spend as long as possible in the cooling cell, they are transported through the cooling spiral in multiple lanes 

Solution

  • The products are detected on the feed conveyor to the cooling system by means of a camera system
  • This signals the position to the Motoman Picker, which then picks up the products accordingly and sets them down in two rows on the chain of the cooling tunnel
  • The option of setting the products back down with an offset means that the conveyor can be used more effectively
  • The airflow and thus the cooling effect are optimized in this way

Results

  • Energy-efficient solution with small footprint and fast adaptability for product changes
