CoBot Systems greatly increase the cost-efficiency of packaging lines overall through automatic supply to the filling line. They correspond to current Global safety norms, and can be used immediately without any additional safety and monitoring systems. In addition, retrofitting in installed equipment is not only possible but also straight-forward. Depending on utilization, the ROI period for an IWK CoBot system is just 12 months.
CoBot-supported IWK DPC depalletizing system: The collaborative depalletizing system from IWK is unique in the industry and offers full equipment autonomy. The robot arm with pneumatic grip arms is able to access up to two pallet spaces, therefore ensuring that the tube filling line has uninterrupted supply. This significantly extends the cycle times for subsequent pallet deliveries.
CoBot-supported IWK TZC tube infeed: The robot arm transfers the empty tubes to the removal area, while lateral guide strips ensure precise positioning. There is no protective enclosure on the IWK TZC, and as a result the machine operator is able to manually correct the tube positioning immediately if needed. Changing a format part requires just a small number of hand movements, and generally only takes a few minutes. The parameters can be stored in each case, and accessed later as a complete setup. The controls of the CoBot system are fully integrated into IWK equipment, and can be conveniently operated without any programming knowledge using the IWK HMI operator panel.
