Packaging Robots & Automation

Packaging robots and autonomous machines will get you what your production line needs—productivity. We supply Mitsubishi Melfa industrial robots which combine intelligent technology in a compact package, so you can manufacture precisely at high speeds.

We’ve been looking after NZ’s food industry for over 30 years, so get in touch and let us know what you need. Our team of specialists can help you with practical advice so you can choose the right robotic and automation machinery to make your operations more efficient.

What are the different types of packaging robots?

With so many types of packaging robots available, it can be hard to figure out which one is right for your business. It’s important to select a machine that suits your production volumes and the level of automation you want. We supply packaging robots developed by Mitsubishi Electric, a leading automation technology company with a very good track record.

Vertical type packaging robot

Vertical type robots operate in a vertical direction, often used for tasks like stacking, sorting, or vertically oriented packaging. Using highly accurate vision sensors and force sensors, it’s now possible to automate extremely difficult tasks that have been beyond the scope of automation in the past. Ask us about the Mitsubishi MELFA RV-F and RV-FR Series robots if your business has complex assembling needs.

Horizontal type packaging robot

Horizontal type robots usually move along a horizontal plane, performing tasks like pick-and-place or linear assembly. Ask us about the Mitsubishi MELFA RH-FR and RH-F Series robots if your business produces high-volume foodstuffs or needs precision assembly work. We also offer the ceiling mounted models: MELFA RH-FRHR and RH-FHR Series.

Micro-working packaging robots

Micro-working type robots are optimised for delicate, intricate tasks. These robots are specially for applications requiring precise manipulation in small spaces, such as micro-assembly. Ask us about the Mitsubishi MELFA RP Series robots if your business needs a small, high speed, high precision robot with a unique five-links structure.

Intelligent options for robotic packaging

We can also provide a range of intelligent options for the automated machines and robots that we supply. For example, safety options, vision sensors, force sensor sets, and robot hand tools.

Software add-ons for packaging robots

The FA Application Package “iQ Monozukuri” is a software package designed to enhance manufacturing processes and productivity for production lines. It combines various technologies, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs), human-machine interfaces (HMIs), and other automation tools to optimise production efficiency. It improves quality control and streamlines operations by integrating different aspects of manufacturing into a unified system.

“iQ Monozukuri” has a conveyor tracking application, processing machine loading application, force-sense application, and a deburring/polishing application.
