Automation integrator Robotic Automation Systems engineered and manufactured a turnkey packaging automation system allowing a customer to replace a part-picking and palletizing operation currently being done by hand.
The palletizing automation eliminated the need for a full-time operator, helping the company address labor shortages and the need to shut down the time when full-time operators were not available.
The result was that one operator was only needed once an hour to move the full two full gaylord containers, replace them with empty containers and reload the tray of slip sheets.
The packaging system uses an collaborative robot so employees can work near the machine.
Robotic Automation Systems is based in Waunakee, Wis.
