PSA offers 30+ years of robotic expertise serving the paper, tissue, converting, food and consumer products
industries. PSA’s robotic Palletizers and Destackers are engineered around a multi-axis robot using custom end
of arm tooling to stack or destack virtually any product. PSA can also provide both dual and single arm
collaborative robotic solutions for pick and place, material handling and low payload packaging applications. PSA
can also offer custom solutions for Pick & Place, Machine Tending and Material Handling for a large variety of
Robotic Palletizing Systems are engineered around multi-axis robots using custom end of arm tools (EoAT’s) to palletize virtually any product, along with the ability to simultaneously palletize on multiple pallet locations to match the upstream packaging demands. As a turn-key integrator for end-of-line packaging solutions, we are able to take basic information about the product and production rate to create a palletizing system that works seamlessly within your existing manufacturing line. In addition, PSA has designed EoAT’s that perform a combination of functions, such as a single tool which can pick and place a pallet, stack products over 50lbs, and add a slip sheet between the layers. .
Pick & Place
Robotic Pick & Place Systems work at a variety of speeds to transfer product from one location to another. As a robotic systems integrator, PSA utilizes the latest in high-speed vision-guidance technology, along with customized EoAT’s to effectively handle even the most challenging of products and feed rates in the following markets:
- Food and Beverage
- Personal Care
- Light Industrial
PSA’s robotic machine tending solutions help manufacturers improve productivity, product quality and worker safety. By partnering with industry leaders such as ABB, Yaskawa/Motoman and UR Robots; we are able to integrate standard product offerings and function packages to implement a turn-key solution that will provide the fastest return on investment with the greatest flexibility for our customers.
Whether we integrate UR’s simple to use “Plug and Play” accessories from their UR Caps+ Partner network or
ABB’s PickMT vision hardware and Machine Tending PowerPac software, the goal of each machine tending solution is to provide a more standardized, yet flexible work cell, for increased machine tool utilization and serviceability.
PSA routinely designs and builds custom automated material handling solutions. We have experience with overhead gantry systems, robotic positioners and TrackMotion, cranes, conveyors, and other material handling equipment. Whether you need to lift a 6,000 lb. roll of plastic or place a silicon wafer on a tray, we have the industry knowledge and technical expertise to get it done right the first time.
PSA has designed various automated systems to handle diverting, packaging and palletizing of bottles for both the food and pharmaceutical industries. PSA can provide clean room stainless conveyor systems coupled with robotic packaging solutions to handle even the toughest bottling application. PSA has experience picking up to 30 bottles at a time from a bottle accumulator and also palletizing bottles in cardboard containers. PSA’s custom designed hot fill machines handle hot filling multiple bottles at one time with product.
Good robots have steady hands. We have extensive experience in the design and manufacture of custom end effectors—the “hands” of a robot. From simple tooling to complex configurations, PSA’s end effectors can safely and efficiently handle any type of load.
Our end of arm tooling (EOAT) makes use of clamping, vacuum and magnetic technologies to manipulate loads in a variety of ways. And just like our other products, our end-effectors are designed with reliability and serviceability in mind. We have experience with an array of grippers to safely pick and move your product. We’ve used mechanical hooks to grab pallets, different sizes and layouts of suction cups to pick up boxes, bladder type grippers to grab bottle heads and even a foam or silicone seal to lift 50lb plastic and paper bags. Our EOAT can also be equipped with a vision system and sensors to ensure that it meets the needs of your application.
