The robot will apply cone-shaped paperboard neck tags over juice bottles in single file. Four-sided, cone-shaped neck tags are optimal for bottles and provide a unique billboard to capture the consumer’s attention. Ideal for:
- Kicking off a promotion
- Launching a new product
- Enhancing brand identity
- Tell a unique story
- Providing product information or benefits
- Offering a coupon
- Featuring an award
- Providing instructions or recipes.
The demo at Pack Expo will show a small scale of similar applications that can apply multiple neck tags onto multiple bottles at one time resulting in an effective rate of speed of 150 bottles/min.
The Yaskawa Motoman GP8 robot was selected for this application as it delivers optimal speed, accuracy and range of movement in a sturdy, compact design. GP Series 6-axis robots are designed for fast-paced assembly, packaging, and general handling processes.
GPI’s robotic solutions consist of proven designs and technology customized to suit the product and application and include: product loading, magazine loading, product transfer, and product assembly. The company can also be a single-source supplier for machinery and hang tags.
