Second tea packing system ordered

04 January 2016

To boost production in order to meet increased demand Clipper Teas invested in a specially designed system for packing the tea bags from the point where they exit the tea bag making machine.

Frontline Packaging was chosen to design, manufacture or source all of the elements and it recommended the inclusion of a Universal Robot from R. A. Rodriguez to load the rectangular tea cartons.

The resultant system has proved so successful that Clipper Teas has now ordered a second system from Frontline and R. A. Rodriguez is delighted to confirm that its collaborative Universal Robot will again be responsible for ensuring tea cartons are delivered in the correct orientation to the next stage of the handling process.

Tony Hacker, MD at Frontline Packaging confirmed: “We chose the Universal Robot because it allows safe human/robot collaborative working, making it easier and safer to use in areas with limited space.  It also has a simple, intuitive touch-pad control system which allows Clipper Teas to modify and create programmes easily.”
