Egg packaging system in operation

Robotic Egg Packaging Systems

When a client from the egg industry came to us looking to automate their box packing process, we were able to prove to them that our industrial robots are not just strong, but also gentle and precise. The cartons of eggs move on a conveyor towards the robot that then picks them up and places them in a cardboard box on a lower conveyor. The pneumatic custom robot tool was engineered to lift and place dozen egg cartons (three at a time), 18 egg cartons (two at a time), as well as 30-count egg sheets into the boxes quickly and gently, with precision. The egg packer end of arm tool does not need to be changed or modified when the carton size is switched, which highlights the versatility and premium functionality for our customer.
