2010-05-01 | Case history

The new robotpalletizer installed at SGD Kipfenberg GmbH in Germany, the leading specialist for pharmaceutical hollow glass, combines great capacity increase and the highest flexibility with compact design. This new MSK system has been fitted with an efficient ‘control centre’ by the manufacturer of packaging machines.

MSK Universal Solution in glass palletizing
When producing pharmaceutical hollow glass at SGD Kipfenberg GmbH’s plant in Kipfenberg, both clean packs - according to different packaging  patterns - and whole layers of bottles, are handled and packed onto pallets. There were certain demands that the new palletizing machine had to satisfy: a clear increase in capacity with simultaneous, highly efficient job change. Furthermore, the use up until that point of a different palletizing robot for clean packs and that of a traditional glass palletizer for loose bottles was to be replaced by a more efficient and space saving universal solution, also for economic reasons.

MSK’s robot-palletizing-system is a real all-rounder. It is fitted with three different heads, which can be exchanged extremely quickly and easily with a unique changing device during job change. In this way, the robot is able to palletize clean packs according to different packaging patterns, while it can also pick up different bottle types with a suction plate or with tubes,  which grip the bottles alternatively. In addition, the robot can put up cardbox trays and plastic plates as interlayers. “Thanks to this new solution, the effort during job change has been decreased and double the packaging capacity could be achieved. The reliability is more than 99 per cent, which means it is highly efficient,” says Michael Bouwmann, Key Account Manager for glass at MSK.
