Modern robotics in the food industry - at Interpack 2014 roTeg presents itself more versatile than ever before
With more than 2700 exhibitors from about 60 countries the leading global packaging trade fair Interpack will open its doors on 8 May 2014. Accompanying the fair, robot specialist roTeg shows visitors trend-setting automation solutions specifically developed for the packaging in the food and beverage industry.
According to the medium-sized family business with around 50 employees at present, signs are pointing to growth in the future. It considers itself optimally prepared to gain additional shares in an existing market and to extend its business activities in new markets.
The palletizing of canisters and cardboard boxes has long been part of roTeg's product portfolio. However, these operations have yet been connected to a multi-function grip system so that different products can be palletized with just one grip system - entirely without set-up times or cumbersome tool changes.
The improved roTeg clamping gripper for the bagging line will be presented at Interpack 2014 together with the successfully run systems. The innovative two-axis gripper ensures a gentle handling of the package which may contain different fillings. Bags can be taken, gripped and put down without damage by the independently panning of the axes. This leads to a better utilization of the pallet and a significant improvement of stability as a whole.
An insight into the new generation of roTeg vacuum gripper is also offered. Grip systems completely manufactured in 3D-printing will be introduced and soon be included into series production.
The extension of the product portfolio in the field of gripping technology opens up opportunities for roTeg for additional growth. Its stated goal: Sales shall be approximately doubled by 2017. In order to achieve this, the creation of about 30 new jobs is provided.
"The company's success is based on the outstanding achievements of our employees," sales manager Dieter Böhle emphasizes. Chairman Dr. Thomas Graefenstein adds: "The qualification of our colleagues enjoys high recognition by customers worldwide, which is why not uncommonly competitors envy this team".
At its stand (F23, hall 12) the Dortmund mechanical engineering company presents wide-ranging application solutions for all handling tasks and makes it possible for the visitor to interact directly and personally with a highly specialised and qualified service team.
roTeg is a part of robotics industry since 1993 and has developed to a specialist for palletising technology due to its innovative ideas. Quality made in Germany, creativity and a high level of customer advisory: Based on this, we develop advanced technology for decades, leading to significant process improvements. This includes the roTeg pallet conveyor equipment and the newly developed roTeg depalletise robot that through its diverse components represent a balanced portfolio in the automation technology. In roTeg special machine for power plant engineering and automation solutions in explosive refinery areas infected another exciting focus of roTeg AG.
roTeg - palletising
The roTeg palletising robot, in combination with the gripper technology and control software roTeg Control is a reliable and intuitive robot system. Depending on the requirements on roTeg robot is designed for optimised application. The rugged constructions of roTeg palletising robot and self diagnosing system are guarantees for high availability and process reliability. Product changes or programming new packaging schemes can be immediately entered by the operator menu-driven self. Through the use of multi-function grips eliminated gripper change and make the intelligent system more efficient. With the robotic system roTeg almost everything can be realized! It increases competitiveness and is adaptable to new tasks in dynamic markets.
