TIP W 1600 ROBOFEED Automatic Ream Counting & Feeding for Folio Wrappers
Machine Model for Improvement
All folio-size wrappers, including equipment not made by BW Papersystems
Description of Improvement
The ROBOFEED is a stand-alone fully automatic ream counting and feeding system that can be integrated into any folio ream wrapper. This sophisticated, state-of-the-art robotic solution eliminates the need of operators. However, it still offers the flexibility to run the wrapper in a conventional way, with manual ream infeed by operators, if needed.
Three robots suspended from a structure form the heart of this upgrade. The robot in the middle, equipped with a counting disk, is accurately counting many different grades of products. Two robots on the outside are feeding the reams into the wrapper. This automation increases overall efficiency by eliminating operator fatigue while providing constant, predictable operation.
With this automatic infeed, in a 3-shift operation, up to 4 machine operators are freed up for other tasks. ROBOFEED offers even further automation options. Dual HMI’s allow convenient input of additional parameters into the system already in operation.
