Speeding up automated trolley loading for dairy industry

04 September 2016

Dairy Mechelec Automation has introduced a trolley collation and packing system aimed at the dairy industry. The TP1002 Trolley Packer has been designed to provide automated, cost-effective trolley loading, at fast operating speeds, offering flexible throughput for NIS, INFINI and ECO dairy bottles. 

A robotic arm is used to load two static trolleys simultaneously, which increased packing speeds when compared with conventional systems. 

Automating the trolley collation and packing task eliminates the need to manipulate trolleys, avoiding the common compatibility issues arising from differing designs or damaged trolleys.
