Keba’s Kemotion Packaging has been developed to ensure easy and swift automation of packaging processes in palletizing and pick and place applications via integrated control concept.
The focus is on conveniently integrating robots, conveyor belts, vision systems along with rapid programming and configuration of the whole machine and robot application. HMI, PLC and Robotics are united using the integrated concept, which leads to the best possible synchronization of the complete packaging process.
This solution offers enhanced machine productivity along with a decrease in system complexity. It includes a universal operating concept score along with a factory support of 20 varied robot types all making both programming and operating the packaging machines very easy. Furthermore, need to learn exhaustively the various robot programming languages is unnecessary and redundant. The Kairo robot command set of Keba has several ready-made command and configuration modules, which would be very important for the programming part of the applications. Also, it allows simple integration of tracking and vision systems such as three-dimensional support along with intuitive programming.
Moreover, its off-line editor is very simple and handy to use. Even without the requisite hardware, control programs can be prepared saving precious time as the online teach-in function could do the final optimizations directly on the robot. The high grade scalability of both the software and hardware assures complete systems, which are matched individually to suit the customer’s needs with an added benefit of optimal performance/price ratio. Kemotion also offers system configurations for a varied set of requirements and speeds up palletizing cycles to 15 packages in a minute. Shorter cycle times and an extended endurance level of the robots are also beneficial.
