Collaborative robotics to promote 4.0 technologies in the food industry

The food industry demands solutions and automation systems that are capable of transforming the sector and aligning it with its main challenges: 4.0 technologies, concern for healthy eating, sustainable and efficient food production, and the fight against climate change. According to estimates, the digitization of the European food industry will have an impact of more than 300,000 million euros between 2021 and 2025.

In this context, Inser Robotics, an expert in the integration of automation and robotics systems at the end of the line in the food and beverage sector, will exhibit its latest trends in automation, robotics, and autonomous transport (AGVs – AMRs) for the food industry at the Food 4 Future international fair.

Inser Robotics will present for the first time in a face-to-face event its new development: Copalletizer, an advanced solution based on collaborative robots or ‘cobots’ that has the necessary characteristics to deal with the automation of palletizing systems at the end of the production line, making these industrial processes safer, more compact, and productive.

“Our Copalletizer cell is redefining the concept of collaborative palletizing. Food 4 Future is a unique opportunity to show the keys to its success to professionals in the sector who are seeking to improve and streamline their production chains,” stated Fernando Riaño, CEO of Inser Robotics.

It can be programmed in minutes
The innovative Inser Robotics system offers the integration of a programming assistant that allows configuring the cell in a matter of minutes and that improves the efficiency of the collaborative robot movements when compared to classical programming. This makes it possible to increase the productivity of these robots, reducing setup times for new references, and improving palletizing times without exceeding the speed that is considered safe.

The assistant is located on an industrial touch panel on the front of the cell, which allows visualizing the installation in a virtual environment and programming the robot without having prior knowledge. Its state-of-the-art trajectory planning algorithms are capable of calculating the optimal trajectory for each box.

“It’s one of the solutions that is awakening the most interest because it combines all the advantages of our usual custom-designed palletizing solutions, offers a simple configuration, and achieves a higher productivity than the other solutions of its category,” Fernando Riaño added.

Inser Robotics technologies and solutions can be found at stand C-320 within the Food 4 Future 2021 venue. There, the company will showcase the most interesting projects it has carried out in recent years on several large-format screens: a video summary of some of the more than 1,250 projects they have installed since its creation.
