Our customer produces baked goods for the retail industry and required a packaging solution that would handle a demanding workload quickly and with efficiency.
High-speed pick and place.
Together with our customer, the Sewtec engineering team designed and developed a solution to accommodate hundreds of products on a packing line ready for sorting, quality control, and primary packaging, utilising our high-speed pick and place robots and a third-party flow wrapping machine.
Products arrive from the upstream production area on mass, at 400ppm. The Sewtec system separates the goods into product streams and, using 3D scanning technology, runs a quality control process across each product, with rejected items – based on pre-programmed criteria – returned to an inspection point at the end of the belt. The pick and place robots collate and stack the correct number of products on the infeed of the flow wrapping machine, at an output speed of 100ppm, ready for primary packaging.
