Quest Industrial Launches a New Standardized Version of its Box Bot in booth C-2825 at PACK EXPO 2021

The Box Bot, a space-saving robotic palletizer with a small footprint, starting at just 8’x10’, allows an operator to design and produce exact pallet patterns quickly and easily from bags to boxes and other product types. The new standardized version comes with the same features and benefits of the original Box Bot, but is built for those customers who don’t require a lot of added customization in their machine.

MONROE, Wisconsin, August 25, 2021 - Quest Industrial is bringing robotic palletizing to more customers and markets with the launch of its new standardized Box Bot - the QB300 series, which is debuting in booth C-2825 at PACK EXPO 2021, Sept. 27-29, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas.

The Box Bot, a space-saving robotic palletizer with a small footprint, starting at just 8'x10', allows an operator to design and produce exact pallet patterns quickly and easily from bags to boxes and other product types. The new standardized version comes with the same features and benefits of the original Box Bot, but is built for those customers who don't require a lot of added customization in their machine.
"There are many customer applications that are relatively straightforward and ultimately don't need something that's extremely complex," said Ryan Womble, Director of Sales, Quest. "We've standardized and pre-defined key configurations of the Box Bot, while not sacrificing capability or functionality. Our standardized version enables us to offer a more cost-effective palletizing solution to customers with shorter lead times."
Ideal applications for this new standardized version of the Box Bot include companies who rely on manual palletizing in industries such as food, beverage, consumer goods and others. Implementing a robotic solution cuts down on labor costs, reduces risk of employee injury associated with manual palletizing, and increases predictability of a company's production output.
All models of the Box Bot QB300 series feature a FANUC robot that provides higher stack patterns, which better maximize tractor-trailer loading for more efficient shipping. Creating patterns is accomplished though the QBox custom pallet building HMI-based software, the most technologically-intuitive operator interface available on the market. The ability to build your own patterns saves time and money by eliminating the need to have a service programmer onsite to perform the task.
Quest is an award-winning, FANUC Authorized system integrator and certified vision specialist, and its systems are capable of direct food contact with U.S. Department of Agriculture compliant and washdown designs. The diverse knowledge base of Quest engineers and programmers encompasses the entire manufacturing process, allowing them to solve virtually any customer application with the appropriate level of robotic automation.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
