Foodmach Corporate Profile

Foodmach Pick & Place palletisers use robots to pick up single cases, or a number of cases aligned the same way, to place them in the correct location on a layer.

This solution has the advantage of occupying a small footprint and also has the flexibility to easily change layer patterns from one product to the next, particularly if a simple layer pattern program such as Robowizard® is used.

The best analogy for how Robowizard® works is that it is like playing Tetris with robots and cartons. The proprietary robotic pattern forming software is provided as a drag and drop interface which enables size changeovers in minutes, not days – with no PLC technician required.

It is simple to use, with unbelievable flexibility, accuracy, and reliability.

Where line speeds are low a single robot can service two or more lines, greatly reducing the cost and floor space required versus traditional palletising systems.
