Pacline Robotic Carton-Loading and Automated Trash Removal Solutions for Distribution Centers and Warehouses

Pacline Robotic Carton-Loading and Automated Trash Removal Solutions for Distribution Centers and Warehouses

Pacline Robotic Carton-Loading and Automated Trash Removal Solutions for Distribution Centers and Warehouses Published on www.mheda.com, November 2023 In line with the industry’s push for heightened accuracy, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness, Pacline is proud to introduce its robotic carton-loading solution, seamlessly integrating Pacline overhead conveyor systems with robotics. For distributors and integrators this new solution promises a cutting-edge technology to introduce to customers. The loading of empty cartons or totes to moving monorail conveyors automates a task that is traditionally repetitive, labor intensive and prone to inaccuracy. Pacline uses robotic loading to monorail conveyors to drive reliable rates and significantly reduce labor costs. Key Features and Benefits: Efficient Robotic Loading: With vacuum-gripping end effectors, our robots can integrate with both automated and manual carton erection processes. The inclusion of a motorized drive roller (MDR) conveyor ensures single carton delivery for fast and reliable loading. Flexible Design: Tailored to manage various carton sizes, Pacline’s robots can handle multiple pick and place points, loading onto common or specific carriers. Safety: Pacline’s robotic solutions are equipped with safety cells and access doors that uphold or surpass industry standards. Operator entry into the cell for regularly scheduled maintenance is protected by a “request to enter” feature that safely pauses robot operation. Upgrade Capabilities: Current users of Pacline empty carton or tote delivery monorails can upgrade to a robotic loading solution with potentially minimal alterations to their existing layouts. Automated Trash Removal: With our Robotics and Automation expertise, Pacline offers smart trash carton removal solutions. This add-on enables automatic identification and transfer of specific cartons from monorail carriers to a belt conveyor for either disposal or...

Pacline Factory Acceptance Tests

Pacline Factory Acceptance Tests

Pacline Factory Acceptance Tests What is a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT)? For automation projects, a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) is conducted at Pacline’s factory to verify the performance of the automation cell before it is shipped to your facility for installation. The test ensures that all customer design requirements are met while adhering to safety standards.  FAT Process at Pacline During the Factory Acceptance Test, Pacline replicates site conditions and use cases over an extended period in order to identify and address potential improvements. Ensuring safety while meeting production rates is Pacline’s primary consideration. The FAT is the final phase before equipment is dismantled and shipped to your facility for the Pacline crew to install. Pacline has a dedicated Automation and Robotics building where Factory Acceptance Tests can be conducted. The system is set up in an open shop area to replicate the configuration of the facility the system will be installed in. During this test phase, we ensure all the system specifications are met and make any changes or enhancements if required by the customer.  During the FAT, Pacline will typically integrate and test robots, end-of-arm tools, robot pedestals, guard fencing, gate switches, control panels, HMIs, sensors, and all the required cables. Tests are conducted “at rate” with actual customer products and a fully functional conveyor system.   Once everything is working as required, the entire setup is dismantled and shipped to the customer’s facility to be installed.  GET MORE INFORMATION Your Name Company Name E-mail Address Phone Number Country Industry/ApplicationWhat is your application?Assembly LineEmpty Carton and Tote HandlingCorrugated Trash RemovalPaint & FinishingParts Accumulation & WIPGarment HandlingGreenhouseWoodworkingProduce PackingEntertainment...
