New robotic system packs pizzas at 120/min

The Italian system integrator Vortex, was asked by Panidea, a pizza producer in Italy to design an automated packaging system for frozen pizzas. Pizzas coming from a freezer were to be loaded into a flow-pack machine before going to the cartoning machine. The major challenge was to handle four different products – triangular, circular and oval shaped pizzas. Furthermore, the customer wanted a fully flexible and scaleable system, where new products (new shapes, sizes, types) could be introduced and the capacity increased over time.
