  • System works in three-shift operation 24/7
  • Cooperation between 10 robots
  • Speed of approximately 30 m per minute
  • Flexible gripper design with mechanical and pneumatic components 

Results

  • Palletizing of 100,000 beer cans/hour
  • 80 different variants virtually no conversion work
