Pick and place Scorpius

The concept behind the design, is actually to have two machines in one: a divider – which split the infeed product in separate lanes according to the packaging pattern – and the pick & place cartoning unit.

Products enter che machine – in the staker unit - through a monofilar conveyor.

The exact amount of containers is properly dosed by rubber belts and moved from infeed to picking area where a cartesian manipulator, which is equipped with several picking grippers, picks up the containers and gently lays them down into the cartons.

To guarantee a very high picking efficiency, the grippers are shaped “around the container” in order to have the same exact negative geometry.

In that way it is possible to have a stiff picking avoiding any unwanted obscillation.
