Robotic Integration

Nortech Packaging offers turn-key integrated solutions based on several types of robotic arms. Robotic arms can feature different end-of-arm tooling which makes them suitable for specific applications. Applications cover various aspects of packaging automation: product loading, case erecting, case loading, case sealing, labeling, and palletizing. Nortech is with you every step of the way, from initial concept design, to build, to installation, and training. Nortech Packaging is here to make sure your robotic packaging solution is implemented successfully through every step.  Our solutions are always built with safety, dependability, and efficiency in mind. All Nortech robotic packaging systems feature user-friendly controls that allow your workers to operate the system without extensive training, or programming knowledge.

PALLETIZING

Nortech’s robotics division is able to design, build, and integrate a palletizing system for a variety of industrial applications. Various end-of-arm-tooling styles allow for flexibility in creating a system that suits your particular palletizing needs. We have experience in creating systems that handle bags, cartons, pails, and kegs. By relying on our extensive experience we are capable of designing for virtually any type of product. Our solutions can be custom tailored no matter what the weight, size, or shape of your container or material. In addition to product placement,our systems can handle pallets, tier sheets, and slip sheets.

If you are looking to set up a brand new palletizing operation, or rethink your current standard palletizing solution, look no further. Nortech is able to help you get started with a fully automated end-of-line system. We can integrate Fanuc, and Motoman material-handling multi-axis robotic arms that are known for their speed, and reliability.

BENEFITS

  • INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY
  • FAST CYCLE RATES AND HIGH THROUGHPUT
  • ACCURATE REPETABLE PLACEMENT
  • LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS THAN STANDARD PALLETIZERS

DEPALLETIZING

In addition to palletizing automation, Nortech can just as well design, build, and integrate your robotic depalletization system. We use Fanuc and Motoman material-handling multi-axis robot arms to automate the unloading of incoming material. As with all Nortech robotic solutions, your depalletizing system is always built with safety, dependability, and efficiency in mind.

OPTIONS

  • CASE AND CARTON DEPALLETIZING
  • BAG DEPALLETIZING
  • BULK DEPALLETIZING
  • MIXED LOAD DEPALLETIZING

CASE LOADING

Nortech can design, and build your complete robotic case loading system. Additionally, we can integrate a complete loading system that includes case erection, case sealing, labeling, and palletization. Robotic case loading systems offer many advantages over standard mechanical special-purpose solutions. In the majority of cases,our solutions greatly reduce labor costs and increase loading rates. The versatile nature of robotic arms allows for fast adaptability to any case loading application. We can tailor your system to any type of conveyor type, and layout. Easily interchangeable grippers provide gentle product handling, as well as the ability to perform multiple functions on multiple lines, even in a single robot configuration.

BENEFITS

  • Precise Product Handling
  • Highly Efficient
  • Low Maintance
  • Compact Foot-Print

CASE ERECTING

Looking for improved box erecting? Nortech Packaging has developed a modular solution for easy integration into a new, or an existing packaging line. The Erector System is ideal for high- speed case erecting, and fully integrated loading. With our case erector,you can modernize your production line, increase flexibility, and lower labor costs.

BENEFITS

  • Precise case forming
  • Extensive size range
  • Extensive speed range
  • On-Demand, random & NO CHANGEOVER

LINE TRACKING

Handle packaged products on a moving conveyor and track race packing with Nortech Packaging’s new visual line tracking software. Line tracking software allows you to optimize your packaging system. It can be smoothly incorporated in an existing packaging line and it is an important component in a track and trace process. Our system also offers a compact solution for a track, and trace palletizers. This solution provides every shipping case with a label containing detailed information about the content of the case.

BENEFITS

  • High-speed
  • Precise packaging
  • Advanced Material handling
  • Kit assembly applications

CUSTOM EAOT

The crucial part of any robotic system is a contact point between them. End-of-arm-tooling (EOAT), gripper, or end-effector components are compatible with your specific application for increased speed, and accuracy. We are experts in design and fabrication of custom tooling solutions. Additionally, we use many stock end effectors compatible with almost any robot.

BENEFITS

  • Fully Custom Solutions for Robotic Grippers
  • Efficient Automatic Tool Changing
  • Dependable Precise Material Handling
  • Increased Efficiency

SIMULATION

Before you invest in a full system integration, Nortech can provide robotic simulation services. Test your solution in the virtual world without spending a cent on hardware or committing to full-scale builds! With the help of our software we can very closely emulate the capabilities of the robot,and real-world work-cell conditions. We use the data collected during these simulations to gain abetter understanding of design, for easier troubleshooting, and optimization.

Robotic simulation can also be used to test proposed improvements to your current robot system. We can help test hardware capabilities like reach and speed. With software simulation, we can test multiple scenarios, and decide which one produces the greatest advantages to your process.

APPLICATIONS

  • Off-Line Programming of Robotic Systems
  • Reasarch Feasibility
  • Gather Valuable Output Statistics Before Build Begins

FELIX

Our new generation of robots makes it possible to automate processes that could never be automated before

Nortech Packaging is proud to offer FELIX collaborative robot that can be used in almost any industry. Our new generation of robots makes it possible to automate processes that could never be automated before. They can create a mixed manufacturing environment where robots and people can work side by side. It is flexible, easy to program, and safe to operate near people without stopping or slowing down production. All these features allow for automated work-cells to be efficiently integrated into a line that was previously all done by hand. FELIX will not injure users, or equipment, even if they were to collide with them at full speed.

APPLICATIONS

  • Cartoners
  • Case packers
  • Tray packers
  • Integrated system

BENEFITS

  • Highly Flexible
  • High Quality But
  • Low-Cost
  • Working with Human
