Palletizing cases of Light Bulbs


Two FANUC M-410iB palletizing loose and bundled cases with light bulbs in a fully automated system. The system handles about 35 cases per minute. Bar codes are scanned on the boxes to determine what boxes are next and which pallet they should go on. The robots handle a large variety of case sizes, including bundled / strapped cases. A patented servo gripper uses an auxiliary axis on the robot to adjust the center distances of the suction cups on the fly in order to pick up the different size cases.


Key Technology Demonstrated

M-410 iB robot
  • High performance motion yields fast cycle times and high throughput.
  • Large work envelope provides the ability to service multiple production lines.
  • Small footprint and integrated controller reduce required floor space.
  • Proven, reliable FANUC servo drives provide highest uptime and productivity.
  • Longer maintenance intervals equate to lower operating costs .
  • Fewer mechanical components reduce down time, increase mean time between failure (MTBF) and minimize spare part requirements.
