Automated packaging for Barkers
Barker’s rapidly expanding product range and volumes were outstripping the capability and capacity of their packing system.
Design Energy designed and built a compact automation system, using two of the world’s fastest lightweight industrial robots from Nachi (MZ07). The system provides the flexibility to pack products ranging in size from 250 ml jars to 2 litre PET bottles. New products and carton sizes are quickly and cost effectively added with minimal interruption to production. Capable of packing at a rate of up to 4,200 units/hour, this system is ideally suited for small and large producers.
