9. Pick-and-place robot excels at case packing flexible packages
The new Quik Pick & Pack robotic pick-and-place cell from Quest, A Pro Mach company (Pack Expo Las Vegas 2019 Booth C-3026) can case pack up to 1,000 pieces per minute while taking up just 155 x 94 x 85 inches (L x W x H).
According to the company, “The Quik Pick & Pack works extremely well with flexible film packaging, thanks to its vision system and optional 3D scanning that quickly detects the pouches’ topography and center of gravity to identify the proper high point for picking.”
The system is “flexible” in other ways, too. It packs bags from 1 ounce up to 20 pounds and allows users to create custom pack patterns.
