Automate Packaging with RG6 Grippers at Plus Pack, Denmark
This is an OnRobot company case study
For several generations, Plus Pack has been at the head of the pack among producers of food packaging. The company has continually developed new products that are more or less environmentally friendly, having received several international awards for this work. And not only the green revolution, but also the working environment for their more than 200 employees is given high priority by the company. The working environment in particular is one of the reasons for focusing on automation. It is used particularly where heavy and monotone tasks can be taken from the employees to be done by collaborative robots, “The work station where we use the gripping arm from OnRobot replaces a packaging process where the operator used to work manually on stacking products on top of each other, pressing out the air between them. The manual process required a lot of repeated heavy lifting and a lot of stress on the shoulders. We have removed this physical strain from the employees.” says strategic project manager Bastian Fietje.
