Robotics-based Packaging Systems are Simpler than You Think

While robotic automation can offer several benefits to bakery producers, there is a widespread perception of complexity of robots and the technologies that control them.  Historically, robotic packaging systems included two separate control systems - one for the robot and one for the machine control functions.  The general feeling amongst bakery producers has been that you have to be a robot programmer to run a robotics-based packaging system.  That's quite the opposite these days.  Machines are now simpler, smarter and require much less operator interaction. Robot motion is no longer programmed and the current generation packaging systems decrease the electrical footprint of the system, reduce the amount of hardware required, minimize changeover time and require less spare parts.  All making your packaging system more productive, safer and easier to operate.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how next generation robotic packaging systems are truly simpler, smarter and easier to operate
  • Understand how increased uptime and overall production of their bakery packaging line can increase using robotic automation
  • Calculate the payback (ROI) of packaging automation
