The customer needed effective and efficient solutions for the tedious loading of small dental burr components into various process fixtures and pouch machines as well as applying color code stripes. These dull jobs involved ergonomically problematic operations that put employees at risk for repetitive motion injuries. Compounding the problem was a lack of human labor to perform these tasks, which was impacting productivity.


The Remtec team was able to design a variety of automated robotic random part picking systems with machine vision to meet the customer’s needs. Offering maximum flexibility, the robotic high speed picking systems provide the customer with the ability to change SKUs automatically on demand. The systems are equipped with a standard Allen-Bradley controller, which eliminates the need for robot programming expertise on the packaging floor. Any operator can use the simple touch screen interface without specialized training. One employee can run six or more production cells simultaneously.
