Compact, Robotic Packaging Cells

One of Australia’s most trusted names in Pharmaceuticals chose to partner with RA to design, build and supply two new, high-speed, packaging-automation lines.

Each compact packaging cell (as shown here during factory-testing) performs:

  • Product accumulation & pack-grouping of 10 different products and about 20 different pack-configurations
  • Film application and heat-shrink tunnel process packaging
  • Robotic tending of heat-shrink packs to labelling machine & tray-packing using the high-speed MYS850L 4-axis, SCARA-design robotic arms from Motoman Yaskawa
  • Robotic Case-erecting, Packing, Sealing, Case-Labelling (not shown) and palletising – all using the one versatile, 6-axis-design HP20D robot from Motoman Yaskawa.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced labor costs
  • Reduced staff injuries from repetitive strain
  • Reduced compensation claims
  • Reduced losses in production time
  • Reduced staff turnover & management
  • Increased productivity
  • Increased product quality
  • Increased product consistency
  • Increased competitive advantage
  • Increased safety
