Depalletizing System with Vision
MWES provided a fully automated robotic depalletizing cell for boxed spray heads that was required to supply part to two lines, convey full or partial pallet loads, dynamically pick full boxes off pallets, automatically cut top of box tape, empty boxes for reuse, automatically stack pallets, and send out full stacks for pick up.
MWES implemented a custom compliant end of arm tool with integrated robotic vision, a custom integrated chain driven live roller conveyor system, a dynamic box pallet picking and orientation using robotics vision, and many other materials.
This automated system allowed the customer to depalletize at a rate of one box every 30 seconds. Not only is this more efficient, but it also allows the customer to take a green initiative because the boxes are broken down and reused.
