Robotic Material Handler

Reduce operator time with unattended production

The Robotic Material Handler is the optimum sheet handling solution for digital finishing companies in the sign, display, folding carton and corrugated markets.

Complete unattended operation

The Robotic Material Handler is the ultimate sheet handling solution for digital finishing companies in the sign, display, folding carton and corrugated markets. Its ability to handle all types of material throughout an entire unattended shift, means that our clients can now add another shift to their operation.

Increase productivity

The Robotic Material Handler loads and unloads directly from and to the pallet ensuring high precision at all times. It is capable of handling corrugated, paper core boards and plastics quickly and accurately with a maximum of three cycles per minute in a continuous material flow.

No more intermediate loading or unloading, scissor lifts, work tables... You can use your own process pallets, or even the generic pallets your boards were shipped on. With the introduction of the Robotic Material Handler, the Kongsberg platform now offers a highly productive pallet to pallet automated digital finishing solution.

To gain maximum benefit from this solution we offer today a complete production cell which includes the Kongsberg C66R platform, the Robot Arm/Gripper and a sophisticated safety system.

Robotic Material Handler: Reduce operator time with unattended production
7-axis rail-mounted solution

7-axis, rail-mounted Robotic Material Handler

The basic setup for the Robotic Material Handler features a rigid-mounted pedestal robot, able to handle two loading and unloading points. With a dual table setup, productivity can increase up to four times.

The new 7-axis rail-mounted Robotic Material Handler, however, brings even more reach and flexibility. With the 7-axis rail-mounted solution, multiple instacks and outstacks can be serviced, making all kinds of table and stacks configurations possible!

Robotic material handling is the future for our industries. As devices get faster and faster - manual handling will become a thing of the past.  We can now redeploy and re-train our staff - giving them new opportunities and adding value to our business.

No more material waste

The Robotic Material Handler works with a wide range of materials thanks to the unique gripper. Developed with Clinchtech Ltd, the dynamic gripper picks sheets up to 10 kg/22 lbs in weight and can handle up to 3 sheets per minute.

Where ever you have manual material handling, you have damage and waste, and the level of rework can be high. Damages – from creasing or bending of boards, scratching and dragging of heavy sheets, and to pesky finger prints on final jobs - are now problems of the past.

The Robotic Material Handler eliminates all these potential costly errors by ensuring that there is a consistent sheet placement every time with zero manual handling.

Focus on profitability

The Robotic Material Handler gives companies the opportunity to take on more jobs and gain new customers without increasing the workforce. The simple operation of the Robotic Material Handler means existing teams can be easily trained to set up jobs for unattended shifts, leaving them more time to focus on the high value, low volume tasks and develop customer service.
