Automatic Palletizing Solution
Driven by a demand for streamlining the despatch combined with increased production volume and better ergonomics, HKScan - one of the leading operators in the Scandinavian meat sector - chose to invest in a Riantics automatic palletizing solution.
It was seen as a difficult task to automate due to a complex mix of products in various carriers combined with high volumes and confined space available. Not only many different layer patterns but also a mix of carton boxes in various sizes together with platic crates with bale arms made it a challenging project.
Scope of delivery:
The system is a combination of Riantics' many proven solutions. It consist of a number of light duty conveyors, lifts, pallet conveyors, transfer carts, pallet wrapper and four palletizing robots.
"Due to the new equipment from Riantics, our production unit at Vinderup has achieved higher palletizing efficiency and has thus saved staffing costs. Furthermore, we have eliminated monotonous, repetitive work tasks and have thus also improved the working environment significantly. The new equipment is integrated with our production’s IT systems and contributes to ensure that we have full product traceability".
