Motion Control Robotics of Fremont, Ohio, introduced SUBTA, for “stand up bottle take away.” The pre-engineered automation system handles PET bottles.
SUBTA grabs the bottles and sets them on a conveyor standing up. Bottles are moved through coating, leak checking, case packing and palletizing.
The automation system is portable, so it rolls away from a blow molding machine to allow for mold changes. It can be operated easily with joystick pattern teaching.
“Ease of changeover is one of our biggest selling points that we've heard from customers on the SUBTA system,” said Scott Lang, president of Motion Controls Robotics.
