Heinz-Golden Circle, Robotic Depalletiser
Heinz-Golden Circle, Melbourne was looking for an economical solution to depalletise a range of empty PET bottles from two different sized pallets simultaneously and provide bottles in single file to two separate filling lines.
The challenge for Scott was to develop a system that had the flexibility to handle the customers’ product range automatically and deliver it into a compact foot print but maintain good operator accessibility.
The conventional approach would have been to have two independent layer style depalletisers, each dedicated to its own filling line. The ScottPHS solution however utilized a single ABB660 180kg robot, picking layers from two pallet stations and delivering each of the layers to separate mass flow conveyors. Each product was then singulised on a pressureless single filer directly into each filling line. The robot also stacks layer boards, top frames and empty pallets automatically.
