Meeting the Challenges of Tomorrow with Automation Today

Advancing Automation in the Food Industry

Unchained Robotics offers a wide range of robots, grippers, cameras and complete starter kits to suit any industry. Pick and place, palletizing, quality control and more can be automated today. Don’t wait to automate – robotics has never been easier or more user-friendly.

The automation revolution and food

The food industry was a pioneer in mechanization but has been a little bit slower on the uptake with automation. This is largely because so much of the work done in the food industry was simply too hard to automate. The objects were either too fragile or required manipulation that robots couldn’t do. But this is no longer the case. Thanks to modern automation techniques, collaborative robots, and a myriad of advances in robotics, many food industry processes can now be wholly or partially automated. In an increasingly complicated and globalized market marked by unpredictability and labor shortage, this allows business in the food industry to gain an edge.

Collaborative Robots in the Food Industry

The advantages of collaborative robots

Safe

Cobots meet strict safety requirements that allow for their utilization in close proximity to people or even work directly with them as part of a hybrid process. This means that the robot can perform more human-like tasks or simply make a current human worker more efficient.

Easy to Integrate

Thanks to this capacity for collaboration, companies in the food industry do not need to completely rebuild their processes and lines around robots themselves. This means that previous investments in machinery can be partially or fully automated without massive changes to the production line or the deprecation recently purchased machinery.

Adaptable

Collaborative robots are generally much easier to program and reprogram than traditional industrial robots. This in turn allows for much greater adaptability. Reprogramming a robot for a new task on a new line or for a new batch is often something that any operator can be trained to do. Investing in robots makes you more, not less, agile.

01. Use Case: Pick and Place

Collaborative robots are in general much easier to program and repurpose than traditional industrial robots, allowing for much greater adaptability. Often, reprogramming a cobot perform a new task on a new line or a new batch is something that any operator can be trained to do. Investments in robots make you more not less agile.

Doosan Robotics H2515

€50,500.00 excl. VAT.

A powerful cobot with reach

With a reach of 1,500 mm and a payload of 25 kg, the Doosan H2515 is an extremely powerful and adaptable cobot.

usecase img

OnRobot VGP20

€4,883.00 - €6,080.00 excl. VAT.

Powerful electric vacuum gripper, ideal for palletizing cartons

The VGP20 is an electrically driven vacuum gripper. By using an electrically generated vacuum, this gripper allows for much easier setup and lower maintenance costs compared to a conventional pneumatic gripper.
