Universal Robots (Denmark) recently unveiled their XPAL ROBOX, which they describe as the first solution for random robotic case construction. Features include:

  • The ability to randomly erect any box on-demand without changeover.
  • A company-cited 60 percent reduction in equipment footprint for a similar machine that uses more conventional robotic technology.
  • A UR10e cobot arm that picks a flat box from one of two magazines, squares the case, folds and seals the bottom flaps with 2” tape.
  • Additional magazine and custom box conveyance options that allow for integrating into other packaging environments.
