Palletizing of pasteurized egg
“We contacted Sealing System as our palletizing on one of our lines was performed manually, which resulted in poor working positions for the employee and at the same time we could not achieve the desired capacity on the line.
After dialogue, we chose to rent Sealing Systems' standard cobot palletizing solution, which we could rent risk-free monthly for DKK 10,500.
Sealing System was responsible for implementation and commissioning, and after 2 days the robot ran as promised, and the employee has been given other tasks at the factory while we have achieved the desired capacity.
We quickly found out that we could not live without the robot, and therefore after 6 months we have chosen to buy the robot, additionally we also got the 6 months’ rent back.
The process with Sealing System has been extremely satisfactory, and they keep their promises and deliver the goods.”
Henrik Andersen, Production Manager - Dava Foods
Sealing System has produced and delivered a fully automatic palletizing system for DAVA Foods.
The palletizing robot is an AUBO cobot. This small robot is easy to integrate into a packaging line,
as it requires no security fencing and you avoid all the physical work connected with palletizing, such as repeated lifting and undesirable working positions.
The AUBO palletizing solution consists of an AUBO collaborative robot with suction tools for palletizing the shrink-wrapped products.
The robot tools are 3D printed and customized. In addition, the solution consists of product conveyors and a shrink wrapper where bottles are wrapped in film and shrunk, for instance 6 at a time.
DAVA Foods A/S is a Danish manufacturing, distribution and packaging company headquartered in Hadsund.
In addition to packaging and distribution of shell eggs, the company also produces pasteurized and boiled egg products. The products are sold on the European and in particular the Nordic market. In Denmark, DAVA Foods is a market leader with a market share of 45-50%. DAVA Foods handles more than 1.6 billion eggs in Denmark and Sweden annually. The Group has an annual turnover of DKK 1.3 billion and a staff of 300.
The AUBO robot is a collaborative robot. As it does not require any safety fencing, it takes up significantly less space than other similar solutions.
The palletizing solution reduces the amount of heavy lifting on a daily basis. At the same time, the process is faster when there is no need to stop production when changing from one production to another.
The robot can be integrated without necessarily having to change the existing line.
Throughput of up to five picks per minute without the need for security fencing
Fast changeover between product types
No heavy lifting. It makes life easier for the employees who previously had to move the boxes on to the pallet manually
Compact and simple solution
Ideal for production with great product variation
"Teach function” where each position can be set manually
Easy to program
Significantly less expensive than other solutions in the same category
Flexibility and high precision
Flexible and precise
A Cobot can release labor or assist employees with manually performed, monotonous and grueling tasks. Great variation in movement ensures that the cobot can perform repeated movements with high precision. Therefore, it is particularly suitable for pick and place / handling and palletizing jobs.
The cobot is ideal for companies with great variation in products or product variants (weight and size), where rapid changeover is crucial. It can quickly be reprogrammed or moved and implemented elsewhere in the production.
Sealing System has developed their very own software for robot palletizing: IPS - Intelligent Packaging Software. IPS has been thoroughly tested by our robot programmers and engineers. We attached great importance to designing a user-friendly and logical control panel so that the individual operator can easily operate and program the robot.
A cobot is an easy way to streamline production. A cobot is affordable and cheap to run; it is stable, and it works 24/7, and it is space-saving compared to ordinary robot cells with safety fencing. The investment will soon have paid for itself and at the same time, it provides competitive advantages.
Solutions by Sealing System may be purchased or rented.
Packing and palletizing machines can be integrated in various intelligent packaging solutions. See more solutions in our Cases section.
We have made an animation of “The product's path through the packaging line" to illustrate the various functions that may be included in our intelligent packaging solutions.
