Axium announces MP900 robotic for Mixed Case Packing
May 6, 2010, Axium announced MP900, a fully automated solution for packing complete mixed load cases. The system utilizes a series of robots, intelligent Cube-IQ project planning software, and conveyors to custom pack mixed product into various cases, boxes and/or totes. Customer’s orders are analyzed and the correct container is then automatically released into the system. When the container is presented to the robot the Cube-IQ software tells the robot which products are to be placed in what position. The system allows manufacturers to improve working conditions and reduce shipping costs and errors.

The number of robots used in a completed packing application depends on cycle time and the number of SKUs being processed. A complete packing solution can include the ability to check tare and final weights for quality control purposes, apply labels, provide case erecting and sealing and may include quality control and manual stations. Additionally, used or recycled packaging can be re-introduced into the system reducing the manufacturer new packaging inventory. The MP900 system is ideal for applications in food, beverage and consumer goods distribution centers as well as third party logistics centers.
