Depalletize Cases of Carton Flats for Beverage Line

  A FANUC R-2000iB robot depalletizes cases in a fully automated beverage line. Each case contains approximately 150 carton flats which must be loaded at rates up to 300 cartons per minute. The robot locates the top layer of cases and pulls the case into the end of arm tooling using a vacuum. Tier sheets are removed by the robot once a pallet is completed and then continues to load the last carton. The carton is inverted and deposited onto the magazine by the robot.  

Key Technology Demonstrated


R-2000 iB Robot

  • The slim arm of the R-2000 iB and compact footprint allows for increased robot density, increasing throughput.
  • Compact size and ability to flip over and work behind itself maximizes flexibility for work cell design, and saves valuable floor space.
  • Large allowable wrist moments and inertias meet a variety of heavy handling challenges.
  • Non-rotating forearm simplifies hose and cable dressout increasing service life.
  • Proven, reliable FANUC servo drives provide highest uptime and productivity.
  • High-performance motion yields fast cycle times and high throughput.
