Hakozume Robot is a robot system that automatically packs gift sets and other items into boxes by using collaborative robots. It enables packaging automation without major layout changes.
In many manufacturing sites, box-packing is done manually by a large number of people, and as the labor shortage worsens, it will become increasingly difficult to maintain the production system.
With the introduction of box-packing robots, you can eliminate the need for securing manual laborers or scheduling shifts, making it possible to build a stable production system.
In the video, you can see that a custom made shooter automatically organizes canned beers, and a custom robot hand grapples and boxes a batch of canned beer for a gift set. Even with the safety measures put in place for robots, this all done in the same production capacity as manual labor.
The system is also equipped with a function to mix 350ml cans and 500ml cans in different patterns, and to align the labels face up. It can also easily switch between gift sets with different layouts, reducing the time required for setup changes.
