Fast handling equipment is often used in processes where volumes can not be handled by one robot only. The product architecture of VELTRU has multi-robot systems in mind. Our customers may download the corresponding Application Notes describing further technical details from our FTP.
VELTRU is able to offer its customers access to all three major concpets for multi robot lines:
The origin of the assortement configuration is in chocolate and confectionary, where several different products are combined into one packaging. Each product is fed on an individual conveyor, perpendicular to the conveyor for the packaging.
Parallel Flow Configuration
In systems with one product only, the products and the packaging are transported in parallel direction. If moving into the same direction, the last robot will have few products to fit into few cavities of the packaging. This typically leads to errors such as products not being packaged and packages not getting completely filled. VELTRU is offering a concept allowing to disconnect the speed of the respective conveyors and thus to overcome the mentioned problems.
An alternative method is using the counterflow principle, running the products and packaging units in opposite directions. VELTRU is able to support this prooven and robust concept.
