RMT Robotics, a division of the Cimcorp Oy company, recently announced a new picking tool that organizes products in the manufacturing industry. This new tooling uses a combination of vacuum and clamping technology to increase throughput.
The efficiency of the RMT Robotic tools cannot be compared with manual work. The new robotic tool can pick up to 95 percent of consumer products and will prove to be increasingly useful since it makes work easy, especially when it comes to handling consumer products in bulk.
The RMT robotic tools can pick products including corrugate or boxboard cases, tubs, bottlers, shrink wraps and open trays. The machines can also pick void and tiers sheets and arrange products on pallets.
In the manufacturing industry, the work is tedious, and oftentimes employees are up against tight deadlines. In these scenarios, maintaining product statistics is a significant challenge, especially when production is high. RMT’s picking tool enables workers to work more efficiently and improve productivity, especially while using automated machines since they pick the finished products and count them with complete accuracy.
Additionally, these tools have a minimal chance of introducing microorganisms in sensitive rooms or machines. This means that the robotic tool can avoid footprints in rooms with automated systems, including those that process food products and beverages.
Currently, the robotic system is being used in beverage companies like beer manufacturing plants in North America.
RMT has received praise for presenting a permanent solution to large industries that deal with multiples of products. According to Derek Richard, distributions manager at RMT, the robotic machines are ideal picking tools that work with RMT’s high-speed gantry systems.
