Using automation can save time, money, and space. As part of a more extensive core utilization system, robotic core handling can eliminate cycle disruption, downtime, and reduce the operational footprint - freeing up valuable floor space.
This robotic system automatically unloads large corrugated cores used in the manufacturing of Tissue and Towel. Once removed from core bins, the cores move into a queue for the next operation. In this system, queued containers arrive into set locations for unloading via a forked vehicle, robotically unloaded, singulated, and loaded into a vertical conveyor to deliver to multi-floor operations.
Although designed for 12 or 16-inch diameter cores, this technology can easily be adapted for a wide range of corrugated cores to feed paper manufacturing or as part of a complete core management system.
Automatic Handling International, Inc. has devised many other creative automated core handling systems for the paper and converting industries - this video is in no way a representation of all the many ways we have design systems. Working with customers allows us the ability to customize machines and systems to fit their unique constraints or operational goals.
