Intelligrated, a North American-owned automated material handling solutions provider, will feature the latest in Alvey® robotic case packing, unpacking and palletizing capabilities at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2011 on September 26-28.

The Intelligrated booth (#3611) will feature two robotic arms operating on a single PLC-based control system performing robotic case unpacking and case packing of bottles. It will also showcase a third robotic arm operating on proprietary robotic controls demonstrating case palletizing. The exhibit will be of particular interest to companies looking to integrate robotics into existing fill lines, including wineries, distilleries and breweries.

With quick line changeovers becoming more prevalent, companies are looking to automate processes to avoid downtime and gain efficiencies. Alvey robotics from Intelligrated, operating on industry-standard controls, enable customers to deploy efficient and repeatable robotics solutions that also seamlessly integrate with other equipment on the line. By maintaining a familiar control platform, plant floor personnel can support these Intelligrated robotic applications without being "robotic experts.”

“With today’s production line handling multiple SKUs, varied product sizes, new packaging configurations and quick line changeovers, companies are now looking to automate processes that are typically done manually,” says Steve Ackerman, executive vice president, Intelligrated. “The key to getting the most out of your robotics solution is the communication process, and complete line automation is made possible with PLC-based systems controlling the entire line.”
