Schmalz Technology Development - The Right Gripper for Every Task

PACK EXPO Booth #C-5211 & SU-8056

In order to interact with their environment and perform the tasks, lightweight robots, like all industrial robots, depend on tools - and in many cases these are vacuum grippers. These form the interface to the workpiece and are therefore a decisive part of the overall system. With their help, the robots can pick up, move, position, process, sort, stack and deposit a wide variety of goods and components. Vacuum gripping systems allow particularly gentle handling of workpieces, a compact and space-saving system design and gripping from above. Precisely because the object does not have to be gripped, the vacuum suction cupenables gapless positioning next to each other.







Robotic casepacking and palletizing for rigid containers

PACK EXPO Booth #C-3425

Quest Robotics will be showcasing a full, collaborative packaging line with fellow ProMach brands Serpa & Texwrap. This line features rigid containers getting packed into trays, overwrapped, and palletized – depicting packaging applications common in the nutraceutical and food industries. Trays will be packed by a Quest QP200-SA2 robotic casepacker, where a FANUC SCARA robot orientates the containers before they’re picked and placed into formed trays by an articulated robot. Filled trays are then overwrapped and sent to a Quest Box Bot QB320 space-saving robotic palletizer to be placed onto a pallet. All of Quest’s robotic systems come with their proprietary pattern building software, which allows for simple and fast product changeovers and easy operation. See all of this and more exciting robotic solutions in booth C-3425 at Pack Expo Las Vegas!

Experience Robotic Bulk Palletizing with Brenton at PACK EXPO 2023

PACK EXPO Booth #C-3822

Brenton’s redesigned MP1000 Robotic Bulk Palletizing / Depalletizing End of Arm Tool can pick up full layers of product at one time. A great time-saving solution for a variety of plastics- and glass-handling applications, the MP1000 provides consistent tight layer grids of palletized and depalletized product through cradle and place technology that combines a servo-operated rotary tool and slat system to gently handle full layers of product weighing up to 500 pounds with each motion. PACK EXPO attendees can experience the full capabilities of the MP1000 through an augmented reality model of the machine in booth C-3822.
