The Italian company C&D Skilled Robotics designs and produces a number of solutions for end-of line industrial automation including:
To finish up our discussions about completing the turnkey system approach, we will be discussing the features and key benefits of the Skilled ant 101 palletizing robot and the Skilled 800 laser guided vehicle.
SKILLED ant 101
The SKILLED ant 101 is a simple palletizing robot requiring no special installation, has a modular construction and can be adapted to any pre-existing product conveyor and packaging line. It is pre-assembled at the factory and transported to our customers in a standard shipping container. Upon delivery, the machine is ready for use.
The software for the SKILLED ant 101 allows for independent customized configurations. Its management requires no prior knowledge of robot programming and/or robot programming languages. Two operator interfaces are available and both are pre-configured with a number of safety features.
There are a number of different SKILLED ant 101 models that are suitable for a variety of automation requirements including:
As for options, they include a variety of infeeds, changing devices, safeguards and grippers.
The Skilled 800 is a Laser Guided Vehicle system that, together with the palletizing systems, allows for complete “end-of-line” automation. The resulting cost savings and significant improvements in production management provide a number of competitive advantages.
The laser guiding system is similar to an electronic “eye” using reflectors positioned on the surrounding walls alongside “triangulation” to determine the exact position of the vehicle. This allows it to carry out its required tasks in the operating area.
