Simple, Sophisticated Automation for Produce Packaging

Download White Paper

Operations that package or process produce are ripe for increased automation. Often located near or captive to farms, these facilities still depend on some manual material handling operations and can reap immediate benefits from a type of automation based on long-travel Cartesian robots with custom end-of-arm tooling and advanced sensing capabilities. These Cartesian robots are built around two or more coordinated linear positioning stages and can save you costs compared to 6-axis, articulated-arm models.

Explore the benefits of these long-travel robots for produce packaging in our latest white paper.

An Introduction to Plug-and-Play Motion Subsystems

If you build machines, you probably work with actuators and positioning stages every day. But do you truly get the best performance or lowest cost of ownership from these motion devices? The answer may not be what you expect.

All too often, engineers think of stages or actuators as a just another item on the bill of materials. As long as the motion device nominally meets the desired positioning, force, payload, speed and cost requirements, it’s good to go.
