ProMach’s newest key acquisition, Quest Industrial, is exhibiting its new Quik Pick & Pack robotic pick and place cell, along with its Boxed-Bot robotic palletizer, in booth No. C-3026 at Pack Expo 2019, September 23-25, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Quest is an award-winning, FANUC Authorized system integrator and certified vision specialist, and its systems are capable of direct food contact with U.S. Department of Agriculture compliant and washdown designs. The diverse knowledge base of Quest engineers and programmers encompasses the entire manufacturing process, allowing them to solve virtually any customer application with the appropriate level of robotic automation.
Quest Quik Pick & Pack
The Quest Quik Pick & Pack is a high-speed robotic case packer that’s quick, accurate and compact. A main differentiating point with the Quik Pick & Pack is its speed and flexibility. With the QPack custom case packing software, the Quik Pick & Pack can be configured to pick up as many as 1,000 pieces per minute.
The Quik Pick & Pack works extremely well with flexible film packaging, thanks to its vision system and optional 3D scanning that quickly detects the pouches’ topography and center of gravity to identify the proper high point for picking. While the ideal application is flexible film packaging, the Quik Pick & Pack performs well with just about any packaging type that comes from a vertical form fill seal or horizontal flow wrapper machine.
Another distinguishing feature of the Quik Pick & Pack is its flexibility. The machine can pick and place bags weighing just one ounce up to 20 pounds. Additionally, end users can create their own pack patterns to accommodate customers’ different packaging requirements.
Features and benefits of the Quest Quik Pick & Pack include:
- Accepts a wide range of boxes or cases with continuous changeover from size to size;
- Accepts a wide range of product types, sizes and textures; and
- Custom orientation of product:
- Pile stacks
- Base stacks
- Random cuts
- Shingle stack
- Two to three stack
The Quest Boxed-Box space-saving skid-based robotic palletizer features a footprint starting at just eight feet by ten feet. The Boxed-Bot allows an operator to design and produce exact pallet patterns quickly and easily from bags to boxes and other product types. Creating patterns is accomplished though the QBox custom pallet building software, the most technologically-intuitive operator interface available on the market. The ability to build your own patterns saves time and money by eliminating the need to have a service programmer onsite to perform the task.
The Boxed-Bot features a long-reach Fanuc M-710IC Series robot that provides higher stack patterns, which better maximize tractor-trailer loading for more efficient shipping.
