RoboCut - robot solution which provide an agile and flexible system for packaging

Main objective

RoboCut – the in-site packaging robot increased effectiveness and efficiency of the whole production process, as well as boosting the productivity of the whole company and reducing waste. In the long term will play a key role in helping custom small batch manufacturing by providing an agile and flexible system for packaging-on-demand needs.

Short description

Many companies, the packaging part of the production is still a bottleneck. There are three types of approaches that manufacturing companies apply today to meet their packaging needs.

        SME’s usually have a packaging supplier which accepts custom measurements for packaging.

        Another approach used mostly by SMEs is to order raw materials and make packaging in-house using the manpower.

        Lastly, some large companies use packaging machines. Currently, these machines are very expensive, not flexible

None of the approaches has all of the following – fast, agile and (relatively) cheap.

We solved all of these challenges.

The project RoboCut let us remove the technological challenges of finding the right packaging for custom production by enabling companies to tackle their packing issues in an agile approach and allow us to be more competitive globally and against the other manufacturers.

Benefits for the users

To optimize the last stage of the production process (packaging), the packaging process is easily controlled and able to deliver custom packages for a variety of products. We use robot solutions which automatically optimize and map the layout of packaging liners on standard cardboard sheets, cuts the layouts ensuring a flexible and rapid product life cycle. 

Innovation

This system is in line of custom products and the solution – the human-machine interface is integrated with the Odoo ERP system.
