Leading Pharmaceutical Company

Project Overview:

A leading pharmaceutical company made an inquiry for a complete End-of-Line robotic solution to facilitate automation of all required end-of-line functions after case packing.  The customer selected Brenton on the strength of a very successful robotic installation several years before for robotic material handling, along with excellent customer service and parts response since the installation.  The project would be for three (3) identical systems to finish pallet loads for their brand new plant in the Southeast.

 

The Customer Challenge:

This company wanted to implement the end-of-line automation to provide the final piece of the automation puzzle between their existing upstream automation and their Automated Storage and Retrieval System interface with Automated Guided Vehicles.  A single supplier was preferred to provide robotic palletizing, robotic corner board placement, stretch wrapping, poly top sheet dispensing, and RFID labeling of the full pallet loads upon exit of the system.  The customer also wanted a high degree of customization to a degree that a higher capabilities robotics integrator such as Brenton could provide.

 

EOL Integrated System Solution:

  • Single-infeed/outfeed
  • Currie by Brenton Robotic Case Palletizer
  • Orion Corner Board Application System
  • Orion FA Stretch Wrapper
  • ID Technology Pallet Load Wrapper

 

A robotic palletizing system utilizing a vacuum venture tool picks and places sealed cases of product onto a pallet. With all loads flowing through the system wide dimension leading, the completed pallet indexes to the Robotic Corner Board Application System. Loads below a preset layer count are bypassed without placing of corner boards. After boards are applied to all corners, the wrapper finishes with a wrap sequence and the load conveys onto the exit conveyor. Finished loads are discharged for labeling, label verification, and removal by customer AGV.
