SCM are delighted to have been chosen as the turnkey supplier for a Robot Palletising System capable of operating in a -30°C Cold Store.
This will be the second cold store palletising system SCM have supplied, utilising the KUKA Quantec KR180 PA Arctic, the only robot of its kind specially designed for palletising at extremely low temperatures. It can work in the freezing cold without any protective suit. In addition, its energy supply system leading right up to the flange is adapted to the cold.
Boxes will be conveyed onto SCM’s specially designed pick table with built in box turners to orientate the boxes prior being picked by the robot. A specially designed mechanical box gripper will palletise up to 2 boxes at a time on a pallet datum point which will be mounted to the floor adjacent to the robot. All system functions including fault diagnostics, maintenance settings and general operation will be controlled via the operator HMI, conveniently located on the guarding adjacent to the access gate providing the operator with excellent line of sight of the system at all times.
The customer was in no doubt that, owing to SCM’s experience in this area, they were the system builder for them.
