Layer picking system handles most consumer goods cases
September 19, 2012 by Alison Dunn
RMT Robotics of Grimsby, ON, a Cimcorp Oy company, has developed a layer picking system using its patent-pending robotic layer picking tool.
Using a combination of vacuum and clamping technology, the new tooling has the capability of picking 95% of consumer products on the market today, the company says, including corrugate or boxboard cases, shrink wrap products, bottles, tubs and open trays. Patterns with voids and tier sheets are also handled with ease.
