Watch how DesignHawk Innovations, a Universal Robots Certified Systems Integrator, quickly deployed Robotiq’s Palletizer Solution at Chicago-based Napco Brands. The cobot palletizers run two shifts, operating 18 to 20 hours per day. Each palletizing cell fills 1,500 boxes, totaling 180,000 single-serve coffee cups packed daily between the two cells. The company is able to operate and reprogram the palletizers in-house now after a quick training session with DesignHawk.
At the automatica 2023 show in Munich, Universal Robots, the Danish manufacturer of collaborative robots (cobots), presented a new brand-new, innovative software platform specifically developed for machine tending tasks. The name is PolyScope X and through a new, customizable user interface, it will add new levels of flexibility to high mix, low volume machine tending automation.
With PolyScope X, machine shop operators can achieve changeover times of less than 10 minutes – far below what is possible today with any other software.
