Palletizing cases of Sugar


A FANUC M-410iB palletizing cases of sugar as part of a four cell application. The four identical cells work together and are connected to a common trunk take-away conveyor. Using a patented servo gripper, the robot is able to stack different cases and bundles at the same time. In a sugar dust environment that could be harmful to workers, the robot is able to be productive. The temperature often reaches over 100 degrees and the robot allows workers to stay out of the heat.


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.
