Good packaging helps sell the product
That’s why the trends in packaging change so often – market needs and manufacturing costs are the two areas that are not easily reconcilable. Marketing on the one hand and production on the other – it’s good to have a robot in between.
Besides all characteristic advantages such as efficiency, reliability and precision, robotised packaging lines, due to their flexibility, largely facilitate adaptation to emerging changes.
In cooperation with wwt Technologie GmbH & Co. KG, Inlader delivers modular packaging systems which, subject to the Client’s needs, offer a wide array of activities:
- product mixing
- metal detection
- control of product weight and shape
- packaging closure control
- forming trays, displays and cartons
- lid forming and topping
Pick > Place > Profit!
In cooperation with wwt Technologie GmbH & Co. KG, Inlader delivers compact Pick&Place systems, which will streamline the production process.
Whenever time is at stake, Pick&Place applications prove the best solution. Products are picked and placed at the pace of 180-240 cycles per minute, items are picked separately and the distance between the points does not exceed 0.5 metre.
Achieving higher capacity and labour cost effectiveness are the main reasons why Pick&Place is replacing human employees at workplaces relating to the delivery and placement of these elements.
Depending on the required cycle time, range and load capacity, we use the following robots:
The most demanding applications are equipped with the vision systems:
The systems identify the position and orientation of the product in real time and send the information to the robot. Additionally, the tracking function allows to pick and place items which are in motion.
Good, diligent employee – robot
Thanks to their versatility, robots prove extremely handy at operating other machines. IS it profitable? Yes, it is, and the list of advantages is quite long: increased work safety (especially in harmful working conditions), less material waste, higher efficiency, sustainable product quality, reduced cost and many others.
Elimination of micro-downtimes, optimal use of machines and reduction of the changeover time projects on the increase of the OEE indicator. Such an investment is characterised by a short return (high ROI).
In cooperation with www Technologie GmbH & Co. KG, Inlader delivers robot employees to operate machines in various spheres of production.
- load and unload trays with products in the process of sterilisation with the use of an autoclave
- replace a human operator in the process of placing lids on bulk containers
- prepare cartons for product loading by opening carton box flaps and placing the insert
- unscrew, wash and screw back the grips holding the drill bits
- help screw component parts of window blinds
Cobots turn out useful in areas where robots cannot replace human labour, but may supplement it by performing difficult, routine or dangerous tasks.
That’s industry 5.0, i.e. cooperation between robots and humans. While robots take over standard processes as a multi-function tool, humans use their creativity for more sophisticated activities.
Cobots are characterised by the following:
- preparation for direct cooperation with humans
- easy programming that does not require specialist knowledge
- quick start-up
- unproblematic change of location
- flexible automation
- easy adaptation to various parts of the production process
Cobots can be successfully applied to perform the following:
- machine operation
- packaging and palletisation
- quality control
Ever since the first conversation till the implementation and service, you always know that the system is in good hands.
Here’s what our clients say about us
“It is good to team up with such a partner like Inlader. We have been cooperating for a couple of years and such projects are the culmination of the common success.”Phillip Wagnerwwt Technologie, Project Manager
The answer is always
Yes. By default, we prepare the concept and price estimate of a comprehensive solution. All the same, we are flexible and attentive to the Client’s individual needs, e.g. adaptation and exploitation of the existing machinery park.
Can you prepare a simple offer and price estimate without a detailed concept specified in the questionnaire?
Yes. In case of smaller and simpler systems, an on-site inspection and a survey will do. Based on the information collected in this way, we can prepare a general concept and the price estimate. Yet, in case of more elaborate and complex systems, the concept is indispensable – it can be delivered by the Client or we can prepare it against payment. These materials may be used as the data facilitating the process of collecting and comparing potential offers.
Yes. While some of the errors cannot be avoided, we can effectively reduce their overall amount. Subject to the needs, we use various tools and modelling techniques which allow us to exercise greater control over the process. We often use 3D scanning in order to use the available area more effectively. We also use VR technology, which allows us and our Client to gain a better understanding and a comprehensive, literally multi-dimensional insight into each and every detail of the system which is being designed.
Yes. If the Client has their own standard, we can adjust to it and prepare an adjusted implementation. In case it is necessary and possible, we can also recommend a solution that in our opinion will work best in a given sector.
Yes. We have implemented our projects on three continents: Europe, North America and Asia.
Yes. Since 2018 we have maintained strict cooperation with the German company wwT Technologie GmbH & Co. KG. In case of joint implementations Inlader comprehensively delivers the steering system and the C&I installation, and wwT Technologie is in charge of the mechanical component.
