AGVs for pallet movements
ADDE designed and built a central palletiser for AstraZeneca in Sydney that uses autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs) for all pallet movements.
A mezzanine was installed to allow the UR10 robots upstairs to palletise while the pallets are finished downstairs.
The system palletises onto cardboard Euro Pallets that are moved on customised tables. It uses Swisslog CarryPick vehicles which lift the tables with their integrated lifting system.
The vehicles navigate using markers on the floor around a fixed path. The system is not ‘people safe’, mainly because of the large industrial robots downstairs, so these marker following vehicle are fit for purpose in this application.
The system has 2 vehicles on the mezzanine and 3 downstairs in the pallet finishing operations all under the control of the master fleet management system.
Palletising with UR10s
This central palletiser at AstraZeneca in Sydney uses 7 Universal Robot UR10 robots to palletise products from 12 production lines onto cardboard euro pallets. Read more
Vial Inspection Machine
An special purpose machine using a vision system for the inspection of vials
The customer required an automated quality inspection process to check that the vial plastic covering is wrapped around the bottom and top to precise specifications.
The system uses 4 separate cameras with UV illumination with dedicated software to get a 360 degree view of the key areas as well as intelligent software to decide if the vial is within specification in order to accept or reject it.
A series of star wheels with built-in suction cups automatically move the vial to its required location:
- reject area
- manual tray off area
- output conveyor
