Four more say, ‘Yes,’ to robotics

Part II of Packaging World’s Special Report on Robotics & Automation continues the story of brand owners who have realized a range of benefits with the implementation of robots.

In case you missed it, Part I of our annual Special Report on Robotics & Automation, in the August 2017 issue, featured five Consumer Packaged Goods companies that added robots to their packaging lines with much success, becoming believers in the technology in the process.

Said Ted Wampler III, Project Engineer at Wampler’s Farm Sausage of Lenoir City, TN, after the installation of the company’s first robot, “Wampler’s began considering robotics when they became precise, reliable, quick, and cheap enough to compete with the more conventional methods of automation being used inside the facility. …The initial purchase was a high cost, but the payback makes sense… . We have no regrets.”

In Part II, four more CPGs find they have no regrets after adding robotics to their packaging operations. Among them, automation supplier Radwell International, Swedish Food Producer Atria Scandinavia, dairy company Fresian Flag Indonesia, and wet wipes producer Rockline Industries.
