Cermex Inc: Case packer/palletizer with 6-axis robot
The combined SD/P5 case packing and palletizing unit from Cermex integrates a Fanuc 6-axis parallel-link (delta) robot in a totally new stand-up pouch application.
The unit--with 2 additional axes--is capable of setting products upright or laying them down depending on how they are fed into the machine and how they are to be arranged in the case with an increase in power. The integration of the 6-axis parallel-link robot accommodates payloads of up to 6kg. This capacity significantly widens the spectrum of possible applications for this version of the SD/P5 combined unit.
