Packaging handles attached to bottles


In this automated system, molded plastic handles are accurately applied to large beverage containers. The containers are delivered to 2 LR Mate 200iC robots in open-top cases typical of club store displays. The 5-axis LR Mate 200iC robots pick handles from magazines and apply them to the containers. The system was engineered using FANUC Robotics’ PickPRO™ simulation software. PickTOOL™ application software coordinates the 2 robots to ensure handles are applied to all containers. The robots apply a light pressing motion to ensure proper seating of the molded handles. iRVision is used to find the location and orientation of the container caps.


Key Technology Demonstrated

LR Mate 200 iC robot
