Pearson Packaging Systems Expands Case and Carton Loading Capabilities with New Two-axis Delta Robot

With a large work envelope, high payload and compact footprint, Pearson's DTL-2X is ideally-suited for facilities with limited space.

Spokane, Washington March 12, 2015


Pearson Packaging Systems, manufacturer and integration specialist of secondary packaging automation equipment, is proud to announce the expansion of its portfolio of robotic case and carton loaders with the release of its DTL-2X, a two-axis delta top loader.

Comparable to a gantry loading mechanism in terms of function and cost, the 2-axis delta robot is smaller, potentially faster and easier to maintain. Unlike the gantry, which requires overhead clearance to accommodate the vertically-moving gantry Z axis mechanism, the 2-axis delta is well-suited for placement under mezzanines or in facilities with height limitations. In addition, PLC based kinematics motion control and minimal use of mechanical parts reduces maintenance requirements and costs for improved uptime and availability.

Ideal for pick and place top loading applications, the DTL-2X offers high-speed, precision placement of up to 40 cycles per minute for a wide range of product types and case styles. Cartons, rigid, and flexible products can be loaded in horizontal or vertical pack patterns into regular or half slotted containers (RSCs or HSCs), bliss boxes, cartons or trays, making the DTL-2X an excellent solution for retail-ready packaging requirements.

Pearson's comprehensive set of fully customizable case and carton loading capabilities includes articulated arm robots, two and three-axis delta robots, Cartesian robots and drop pack technology to provide the most suitable solution for any top-loaded application.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
