Even today, in many factories and workshops, work pieces are placed into containers by hand after they have been cut to fixed lengths and deburred and cleaned (if done). There is no economical alternative. Jointed-arm robots are not flexible enough for small batch sizes and variable container types. On the other side are buyers, particularly those from the automobile industry, who insist on packing guidelines that prescribe fixed quantities for each container and layer pattern. The RASAPORT portal robots combine short set-up times, easy adjustment to changing container formats and a favourable ROI. Depending on the configuration, the pay-back period comes to considerably less than 12 months.
Designed as an independent module, RASAPORT can be linked to machines and production lines from all manufacturers.
