Due to their efficient kinematics, Gantry Robots lend themselves well to automation in material flow applications. In contrast to articulated arm robots they do not get in their own way and reach each position directly without curving. Efficient movements and high throughputs result.

Gantry Robots have become preferred automators for palletisation, de-palletisation or order picking where mixed pallet loads are produced. The key feature for these applications is the pick and place function.

Gantry robots can span extremely wide areas. In addition each position is accessible from above and can pick and place objects on the floor below extremely dynamically. For this reason it makes sense that gantries are used for buffer and sorting tasks.

Furthermore Gantry Robots are flexible and adaptable; handling multiple tasks at the same time. This includes palletising across multiple lines or de-palletising and palletising simultaneously.

They are very well placed to store and retrieve products e.g in buffering applications in goods in or goods out locations. In many applications Ro-ber is able to demonstrate both the system and price benefits of such solutions.

Green Case Tapers

Ever growing environmental concerns have led to a search for renewal and recyclable packaging alternative to plastics and film. The Opitz range of case tapers and erectors use Gummed Water activated paper tape to seal the box. The range extends from semi-automatic erector with base tapers to full volume reducing case closers couple with case erectors with 4 magazines.
