The COOKIEBOT is a vision guided flexible robotic Pick & Place product loading system.
The system is able to handle a random supply of product and offers the ultimate flexibility for toolless change-overs between different product types, sizes and shapes.
The COOKIEBOT system also makes it possible to create the following variety of different configurations:
- Slug direct in flowwrap
- Pile direct in flowwrap
- Slug in tray
- Pile in tray
- Product on edge in cavity tray
The COOKIEBOT is a fully Houdijk designed system, meeting all important and suitable criteria for the typical bakery conditions, whereby ease of operation, changeover, cleanability, maintainability, overall efficiency, 24/7 robustness can be recognized.
The COOKIEBOT is a vision guided system, qualifying or disqualifying the products. Disqualified products will overflow the system.
Based on the line capacity, the system features multiple independent operating COOKIEBOT Pick & Place modules, each featuring 1, 2 or 4 overhead positioned Pick & Place robots.
Depending on the project application the COOKIEBOT Pick & Place robots are available in different reach executions. Each Pick & Place robot is a 3-axis robot, able to move in X, Y, Z direction. The gripper of the robot can be executed with 2 additional axis to rotate and pivot the product.
The execution of the Robot gripper is engineered to the requirements of the project and the character of the product: pick-up by vacuum/venturi or via a mechanical gripper, either in a single or a multipick execution.
An overall control system strategizes the loading cycle, assuring that all products have been loaded and all loading positions have been filled.
The COOKIEBOT system is engineered and completed with other functionalities in the Houdijk portfolio, assuring a well-balanced performance and overall system efficiency.
