The traditional “Badische Buffet” at the Interpack was a huge success. Much more sensation was caused by the highly-efficient CoBot-systems which were presented to the show visitors in Düsseldorf by automation specialist IWK.
These systems go into action in IWK’s world innovation FP 64-2. The first tube filling machine with automatic format adjustment reaches its highest performance by using collaborative robot technology for de-palletizing and tube feeding. IWK sets an example in the industry by integrating this future-oriented technology: CoBot-systems significantly increase the economic efficiency of packaging lines due to a fast and interruption-free handling. They can be installed without further safety system und comply with current industrial safety guidelines. It is possible to retrofit IWK-CoBots in existing packaging lines either as a single component or as a highly-productive combination of de-palletizer and tube feeding system. A rewarding investment: the amortization period of the systems is only 12 Months (application-independent).
