If you stop by, you will see a simlulation of an operation that requires the robot to pick containers from the line and place them on a tray. During this operation the buffer will retract, providing a steady flow of bottles to the robotic pick and place cell. As bottles are returned to the production line, the AdaptA MB will expand to accumulate bottles until the downstream cell is ready again to pick bottles from the line. The system can be designed to handle many types and sizes as well as combinations of products within cases allowing for mixed or “rainbow” packages.
