CASE STORY: SBS

Scandinavian Brake Systems A/S is Europe’s leading provider of brake and friction parts for motor vehicles and industrial plants.

Order:

System for robot palletizing of cases with brake discs from two separate production lines …

The line capacity is 2 x 12 cases per min.

Functional description

The task was to install a complete plant for robot palletizing of brake discs in display packaging. Brake discs are automatically packed in folding cartons and transported to the robot pelletizer via automatic rail systems from 2 separate production lines.

An Okura A-1600 robot uses suction to lift the cases and places them in pallet containers placed on Euro pallets. Sealing System has delivered a turnkey solution including a rail system for cases as well as pallets.

SBS demanded very high reliability and fast changeover time. The plant has released a large staff resource and eliminated problems with EGA and heavy lifting (up to 18 kg per display case).
