CR10: ROBOT LABEL APPLICATOR
THE ULTIMATE IN VERSATILITY AND FLEXIBILITY
Collaborative Robots, or cobots, are at the cutting edge of end of line processing and packaging. This innovation has made what was once impossible, possible. So far, our engineers have used this technology to label inside of cores, label round loads and square loads with the same machine, label 4 sides and the top of a unit load, and apply two different sized labels. These is not your typical pick-and-place application and the members of our team have become experts in various sensors and machine vision technologies to accomplish these very challenging tasks. The inherent freedom of the robot arm coupled with Kolinahr Systems’ expertise in label application and machine controls make the CR10 a truly exceptional machine.
UNIVERSAL ROBOTS CERTIFIED SYSTEMS INTEGRATOR
Universal Robots is the world leader in collaborative robots. This status is a recognition of our team’s achievements in cobot integration and programming. It gives us special access to the support and knowledge of the UR community. Our team has been labeling with the UR robots since 2016 and we have helped many companies automate the labeling of difficult locations and surfaces, and have developed a particular specialization in curved surfaces.
ROBOTS AND SAFETY
Cobots are equipped with an on-board force limiting feature. This threshold can be adjusted to help ensure the safety of your product and your employees. When the cobot detects an unexpected force that exceeds this preset threshold, it will stop and wait for the operator to clear the obstruction and restart the program. Cobots are still relatively new to the industry and to the end of line segment of material handling. Many customers opt for an additional guarding package until their teams can can become familiar.
TRAINING FOR YOU ROBOT LABEL APPLICATOR
This kind of technology can be intimidating. Kolinahr and Universal Robots can both offer training packages to help you understand your new system. If you prefer the hands off approach, you can add a Universal Robots service plan for worry-free maintenance and repairs. With multiple tiers there will certainly be an option that’s right for your company.
