Corner board handling robotic automation machine

Corner Board Handling

A client came to us looking to find an automated system that could convey cornerboards coming off a saw via two lanes a high speed application, strap them in bundles, and stack them on pallets. By integrating conveyors, two custom designed accumulation and stacking machines, and strapping machine, fully formed bundles arrive at an ABB IRB660 robot. The end effector on this robot was designed to handle bundles of different quantities and lengths and place them on pallets. We even installed a conveyor system behind the robot to move the pallets of stacked bundles to ensure maximum accessibility for shipment.
