Uni­ver­sal Ro­bots adding value to Cascina Italia’s pick­ing, pack­ag­ing and shelling line – one egg at a time

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY -

Cascina Italia uses a Uni­ver­sal Ro­bots UR5 ro­botic arm on one of its out­put sta­tions to han­dle ap­prox­i­mately 1.5 mil­lion eggs each day. The de­mands of work­ing in the fresh food mar­ket, pri­ori­tis­ing em­ploy­ees’ safety, ac­com­mo­dat­ing space con­straints, and min­imis­ing costs were all im­por­tant fac­tors in Cascina’s choice in a ro­bot­ics so­lu­tion. By de­ploy­ing the UR5, em­ploy­ees were re­lieved from the stren­u­ous process of pre­par­ing bulky pack­ages for large-scale dis­tri­bu­tion. And since UR ro­bots can op­er­ate with­out fenc­ing af­ter a safety au­dit, em­ploy­ees are able to work along­side the UR5 on the pro­duc­tion line
