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.
