Concrete Suppliers Prefer nVenia Robotic Palletizing Systems
Over the past few years, the nVenia team has designed and installed a large number of robotic palletizing systems for two of the nation’s largest manufacturers of packaged concrete. These concrete suppliers prefer our HAMER Brand robotic palletizing systems and chose our technology over other suppliers. We offer:
- Heavy-duty construction of bag in-feed and full pallet transfer conveyors
- Our proprietary EasyPic HMI/Operator control. This operator friendly control makes it easy to run, change programs or design new pallet configurations without using complex robot software or confusing teach pendants
- High-quality, innovative designs that incorporate checkweighers, robust pallet dispenser designs and other control/hardware components designed specifically for the concrete industry
Once installed, our robotic palletizing solutions have proven to be the most efficient and lowest operating cost solution.
The concrete/cement industry is constantly looking to improve packaging line efficiency and reduce plant labor requirements. Robotic palletizing offers a unique opportunity to do both, as robotic palletizers require less plant space to operate and less operator/maintenance interaction during daily operation. Mean time between failures for robotic arms is approximately 17,000 hours, equating to 7-8 years for most applications. We partner with the global leader of robotic automation solutions, Yaskawa Motoman.
The nVenia team offers two primary palletizer designs for the concrete/cement industry; Semi-Automatic and Fully Automatic palletizers. Semi-automatic solutions utilize fork trucks to pick and place empty/full pallets. Fully automatic solutions use pallet dispensers, pallet conveyors and in-line stretch wrappers for a fully-automatic system, stacking bags, feeding pallets and wrapping finished pallets for transport.
