Modern robotics in the food industry - at Interpack 2014 roTeg presents itself more versatile than ever before

(PresseBox) ( Dortmund, )
"Versatility of gripping redefined" This year robot manufacturer roTeg's focus is on applications. New roTeg grip systems will visualize the expanded fields of applications of a palletising robot.

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.
