Benefits of FANUC Robots and Cobots for Picking and Packing

Flexible Automation

FANUC’s fully customizable iRPickTool software makes it easy for FANUC robots to adapt to your picking and packaging operations, including multiple conveyors, and varying products as well as packaging configurations and line set ups.

Higher Productivity with Intelligent Vision

FANUC’s cobots and robots have the highest reliability performance in the industry and can significantly boost packaging productivity. Our pick and pack robots can be linked to either single or multiple 2D cameras or 3D sensors, while state-of-the-art robotic vision systems enable robots to identify, sort and select random objects on a conveyor according to location, color, shape or size.

Intuitive Picking and Packing

When picking a product, humans instinctively select which option is closest and easiest to reach, then position themselves in the best way for easiest picking and fastest results. FANUC’s automated picking tools are built to emulate this natural understanding of picking and packing.

Speed and Efficiency

The speed and consistency of FANUC’s pick and place robots contribute to faster packaging cycles, allowing you to meet tight production deadlines and scale your operations seamlessly.

Automated Picking and Packing Case Studies

FloraCraft Automates Packaging Lines with Robots for Faster Growth

Increasing growth prompted FloraCraft to innovate its manual packaging lines. They partnered with Brenton, (ProMach product brand) a leader in designing and manufacturing integrated end of line packaging systems to automate its processing and packaging lines.

Tasteful Selections’ Bite-Sized Success Automating Baby Potato Packing

Tasteful Selections leverages FANUC robotics for a cleaner, safer, and more productive work environment.

Picking and Packing Cobots and Robots Application Videos

FANUC America has the widest range of robotic picking and packing solutions in the industry. Plus, with our Authorized Robotics System Integrators network, FANUC can help you take picking and packaging throughput to the next level with automation.

Cobot Picking and Packing Applications

The easy-to-use CRXs are perfect for your bin picking and packing automation needs. With collaborative robots picking and packing in smaller spaces, the cobots will save floorspace while also working safely around humans. Turnkey packaging and palletizing systems using collaborative robots can automate tasks like box assembly and product grouping, saving you time and freeing up workers for higher-level jobs.

Software for Cobots and Robots Picking and Packing

To increase productivity and ease of implementation, FANUC has developed dedicated robotic software specifically for pick and place robotic operations. Our packaging software can coordinate multiple robots picking and packing 2,000 items per minute on a line. This type of packaging automation lowers your costs versus manual labor and saves valuable production time.  

iRPickTool /Efficiency Tools

Because no two robotic pick and pack production scenarios are the same, FANUC’s fully customizable iRPickTool software makes it easy for you to adapt your picking and packaging operations. Our robots can be added to any number of conveyors, products, package configurations and line set ups. Our automated picking tools are fully customizable, ensuring you get the optimal return on your robotics implementation.

iRVision Bin Pick

This software option allows the vision system to recognize the position and posture of parts, placed inside a container, and for the robot to assess how to best pick those parts. It also uses Interference Avoidance to prevent collisions between the robot, gripper and the bin walls.

iRVision Client

This software allows the robot to interface with vision hardware. Coordination between the vision hardware and software depends on the software version installed.
