Foodmach robotic pick and place bag depalletiser

Thursday, 14 February, 2019 | Supplied by: Foodmach Pty Ltd

A Foodmach Robot Depalletiser replaces manual processes for pallet unloading. Bags are picked from the pallet by the vision-guided robotic arm using end-of-arm-tools adapted to the specific product and then placed onto a conveyor for delivery to the downstream processing equipment.

Robotic depalletising is a safer, more consistent way to unload bags from pallets — a task that is otherwise a workplace health and safety risk through bag weights, difficult ergonomics and/or exposure to product and dust. The Foodmach Bag Depalletiser is used in Australian FMCG production lines without interruptions for breaks, shift changes or meals. It can operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in a wide variety of hazardous conditions; in compact, flexible floor layout options.

The system uses advanced in-house developed vision technologies to ensure non-uniform bagged products are handled accurately and consistently. It offers gentler, precise product handling with the ability to scan and validate label to production SKU requests, eliminating the risk of product contamination. It operates at typical speeds of 6 bags/min and can be enhanced or upgraded over time with pallet conveyors and/or stackers, scale weighing systems and product tracking.

All Foodmach robotic equipment comes with backup support by experienced robotics technicians.
