Robotics for Manufacturing
The flexibility and multi-tasking offered by a robot can also significantly reduce capital expense, reduce floor space requirements and provide significant productivity increases to your production lines.
Robotic Systems include:
- Palletising and depalletising robots for a vast product range
- Drum handling robots for drums up to 700kg
- Pick and place robots, high speed and flexible for many applications
- Infeed and outfeed conveyors to suit all systems
- High payload hazardous area robots up to IIC T3 rating
- Integrated infeed and outfeed conveyor systems to suit any robotic system
- Integrated automatic guided vehicle (AGV) systems to fully automate your production process
- MES systems to control the entire proces
Australis Engineering offers a range of industrial multi-axis robots, linear robots and pick and place units. Specialty robots are designed and manufactured in-house for unique applications. Our robotic palletisers can handle cartons, stretch wrapped products, bags, drums or just about any other product type.
Robotic palletising is a key use of multi-axis robots an one that offers excellent productivity gains for your business. A robotic palletiser can easily palletise cartons or bags and, with the selection of an appropriate gripper head, can easily pick and place more than one product in order to increase palletising speeds. Under the right circumstances and with considered design, robotic palletisers can also be used in hazardous environments and even in low temperature environments.
One of the most important benefit of a robotic palletiser is that it's such a flexible solution. Robots come in all shapes and sizes and so it's an easy task to select the correct robot for the palletising job. Importantly, Australis Engineering as specifically decided against forming an alliance with a single robotic manufacturer. This allows us to choose the right robot, considering speed, product weight, product size, high level vs low level palletising and most importantly your budget. Australis can pick the right solution for the application, as opposed to the cookie cutter solution that is the nearest fit.
What is one of the most important elements of deploying a robot?
Often overlooked during procurement, but quickly identified at commissioning, it is vital to the success of your robotic solution, that the robot integrates effectively with the other equipment associated with the production line. This is vitally important when it comes to infeed conveyor and outfeed conveyor systems.
Australis are frequently amazed at how often we are asked to fix a problem with the integration of a robot and the conveyor systems it works with. A poorly designed or executed conveyor system will dramatically reduce the cost effectiveness and ROI of your robot. Conveyors that cannot match necessary throughput speeds, or that don't allow for correct product orientation are unfortunately all too common and unfortunately undo much of the productivity gains that are expected when purchasing a robot.
Make sure that your robotic supplier also has core capabilities in conveying system design and manufacture - if they only buy in their conveyors, rather than manufacture them in-house, then you may be at risk of comprimised productivity and questions over the benefits of implementing a robotic solution in the first place.
