Case Studies

Keep checking here for more case studies and examples of Kaitech’s turn-key automation solutions for a full range of products, services, and environments. The examples below provide overviews of unique engineering and design processes. 

Pie Case Packing

One project that we completed this year is for case packing pies. These frozen pies are picked up, and then placed into the case. After packaging 3 layers, the case is moved on to the case sealer and then to the palletizer. This is the process that we designed to pick up the pies and package them. It was a complex project due to the fact that there was no top to the pie box, so we designed this end of arm tool to use both suction and pneumatics to safely lift and set the pies.

Yogurt Palletizing - Boxes and Shrink Wrapped Product

In Winter of 2021, we put together this palletizing system that is designed to stack shrink wrapped yogurt as well as boxes.

This system will also pick and place the pallet.

This project sits in the corner of the plant that calls it home, and that is one of the reasons that the safety equipment is not set up.

 

ABB Palletizing Cell handling 3 SKUs

In this video, you will get an overview of how we helped our client increase their thru-put and decrease hiring and management time by implementing a palletizing cell.

In this entire cell, you will see:

  • A Zero Pressure 24V Accumulation Conveyor
  • 15 Pallet Magazine
  • 2 Slip Sheet Stacks
  • IRB 660 Robot
  • Venture Zoned gripper for Pallets, Slip Sheets, and the Product
  • Lantech Stretch Wrapper
  • Pallet Conveyors
  • Alan Bradley HMI Screen

Conveyor for 4 Production Lines Feeding 1 Stacking Cell with Food Traffic hurdle

In this video, we are going to show you how we helped our client get 4 production lines feed into the stacking and packing cell. The tricky part about this project was all the production lines ended at a walkway that we had to keep open, so you will see the design that we came up with to account for that walkway.

In this video, you will see:

  • Zero Tangent Conveyor
  • 4 Production lines feeding 1 stacking cell
  • Walkway built beneath the path.

BB Stacking Cell for 8 Production Lines to 1 Packaging Cell

In this video, you will see how we designed and set up this stacking cell to handle 8 different lines of production so that we can stack and then package them.

In this video, you will see:

  • 2 Servo Driven Infeed Conveyors
  • 2 IRB 360 ABB Delta Robots
  • Part Locating Vision System
  • Servo Driven Stacking Outfeed Conveyor
  • Alan Bradley HMI Control Unit
