Automated Labeling System With FANUC LR Mate 200iC Robot - Courtesy of Clear Automation


This automated labeling system has been developed by FANUC Robotics Authorized Integrator Clear Automation to apply labels to liquid cosmetic bottles at a rate of 100 parts per minute.

In the system, the cosmetic bottles travel to the cell along a conveyor in upright pucks. The pucks are fed into the cell by a servo-driven screw that spreads them to match the pitch of a linear indexer. The FANUC LR Mate 200iC robot picks the bottles from the pucks four-at-a-time and lays them horizontally onto the indexer.

At various stations along the travel of the indexer, a label is applied. A batch code is then laser etched and the batch code is vision inspected for readability and accuracy. Bottles that fail the inspection are ejected from the indexer into a reject bin. Good bottles are ejected onto a conveyor to travel downstream to packaging.
