Intelligent box-opening device

16 May 2016

TM Robotics has partnered with Cornerstone Automation Systems, LLC (CASI) to sell an intelligent box-opening device (IBOD) that combines Toshiba Machine robots with the CASI’s intelligent box-opening software. 

Current box-opening options all have limitations. Line workers run the risk of severe hand strains due to repetitive box-opening motions and using knives on conveyor belts can lead to injuries, while spinning blades create dust that impacts robots’ productivity and longevity.

“Our European customers have been asking for a safer, more streamlined box-cutting solution for a long time – and this CASI-built IBOD delivers,” said Nigel Smith, TM Robotics CEO. “The integration of ourToshiba Machine robot technology coupled with the sophisticated CASI software brings something to the market that our customers have never seen before.”

The new system, which integrates seamlessly into warehouse logistics, can function at various cutting speeds and controls the length and depth of the cut, including a three- or four-sided cut.

“We chose to work with TM Robotics on this new IBOD based on the rigidity of its SCARA Toshiba Machine robots,” said Michael Doke, executive vice president of CASI. “With that as our foundation, we were able to ensure this system is both precise and flexible. We’re excited about this partnership and are looking forward to TM Robotics taking the lead on selling it in Europe.”
