Robot wins on aggregate23 February 2021

A special-purpose machine builder has released a video showing a robot working as part of a form-fill-seal bagging system in the aggregate industry.

Haith Group is a UK designer and manufacturer of specialised machinery including bespoke palletising and bagging systems as well as tailored, fully mobile form-fill-seal machines for aggregate and root crop handling systems.

In its recently released video, Haith shows a Kawasaki CP180L robot deployed as part of a form-fill-seal system. The robot is seen picking up the filled and sealed bags of aggregate, each weighing up to 40kg, lifting and rotating them through 90° and then stacking them in the approved and programmed pattern onto adjacent pallets ready for dispatch.

Haith’s Carl Taylor observes: “We have used Kawasaki robots exclusively for more than 25 years on all our special-purpose systems.”

Kawasaki’s CP180L is one of the manufacturers’ most popular robots in the UK and is widely used across many industries. It is particularly suited to challenging applications in arduous environments where heavy payloads and high precision coupled with speed and accuracy are required. Carrying its maximum payload of 180kg, the 5-axis CP180L robot offers a reach of 3,255mm and a palletising capability of more than 2,000 cycles/hr. Despite the speed, positional accuracy when carrying the 180kg payload at maximum reach is +/- 0.5mm.
