Pack Expo - ErgoPakPal Introduced at Pack Expo Vegas

Combi Packaging Systems and Motion Controls Robotics, Inc (MCRI) will be introducing a new robotic end of line case packing and palletizing solution at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, September 28-30, 2015 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Fremont, OH - Motion Controls Robotics has been designing and installing quality robotic solutions for over 20 years. During this time, MCRI has focused on developing flexible solutions for a variety of industries and applications with specialization in a wide range of case packing and palletizing solutions.


Motion Controls Robotics, a FANUC Authorized System Integrator, recently partnered with Combi Packaging Systems to develop the ErgoPackPal. This complete case packing and palletizing system is a small footprint solution for low to medium throughput applications. The ErgoPackPal leaves the job of both case packing and palletizing to one FANUC M710iC robot. This system provides the perfect solution for a situation where a worker is packing and palletizing at a single station over multiple shifts. Installing an ErgoPakPal provides a cost savings through the use of a dual function robot and allows for flexibility over permanent robot installations.

The ErgoPakPal, while a complete solution, can be customized with special end of arm tooling for a variety of product needs. The high speed and compact FANUC

R1000\R2000 can also be used in jobs where a higher weight limit is required. MCRI can also pair a SmartCart® Automatic Guided Cart solution with the ErgoPakPal to take away full pallet loads and deliver packaging materials to the robot cell.

During the PACK EXPO show the ErgoPackPal can be seen in action at Combis booth C-3245. Combi Packaging Systems will also be demonstrating their Sanitary Case Sealer and Alphapack® Case Packer. Both of these automation cells are new products designed to dramatically improve the efficiency of the case packing and sealing processes.

Combi Packaging Systems and Motion Controls Robotics would like to extend the offer for free registration to any current or potential customer.

Visit Booth C-3245 - To set up a meeting to discuss the ErgoPakPal, SmartCart AGCs or other case packing and palletizing solutions from MCRI during PACK EXPO, contact Paul Getten at (419) 334-5886.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
