The Inebriator

The Inebriator is a home made automated cocktail machine. The Inebriator is powered by an Arduino Mega 2560 Microprocessor Project Board. A Hitachi HD44780 compatible display is used to allow display drink information, coupled with a couple of buttons to navigate the menu. A stepper motor is used to drive the drinks shelf, with acceleration and deceleration to allow high speed without spilling. All mixers are in plastic bottles in a cool box, each bottle has two pipes, one that is hooked to the gas tank (70% Nitrogen and 30% Carbon Dioxide), and the other goes from the bottom of the bottle to a valve. When the gas tank is opened (through a regulator) the bottles are pressurised to a low safe pressure. When 12v is applied to the valve it opens, and the pressure causes the liquid to flow through the pipe and ultimately into the glass. Each mixer has its own valve and individually controllable.

Motion Controls Robotics, Inc. - The Random Robotic Case Erector System

Random Case Erectors are ideal for fulfillment centers and other end-of-line packaging needs. Save money by eliminating changeover downtime. Reduce ergonomic injuries by eliminating repetitive manual tasks. The Random Robotic Case Erector System includes: • FANUC M20iA/20 Robot • Combi gravity case magazine - holds 2 box sizes • Combi bottom flap folder with integrated 3M case sealing head. • Fixed robot base, anchored to the floor • Flexible end of arm tool to pick and erect multiple case sizes to eliminate changeover downtime • System wiring and controls • Color 7.5" touchscreen HMI display for selecting case size • Perimeter guarding with safety interlocks on doors • Programming for Robot, PLC/PMC, HMI and Vision • Complete documentation in electronic format • On-site training and support • Compliance with all applicable robotic safety standards. Alternate safety configuration may be available to allow an operator to changeover a case size in one magazine while the robot continues to work in other magazines. Contact Motion Controls Robotics to learn more about how to implement this system into your current end-of-line operations.
