Heede Bolcher automates sweets palletising with customised solution
Improved work environment
Enhanced employee satisfaction
Automation on limited space
Heede Bolcher prioritises investing in modern production equipment to ensure the production of a wide range of quality sweets at competitive prices. In the past, sweets were manually stacked by employees who had to lift the heavy sweets boxes.
The solution to their challenges was a BILA Flex solution, which included a floor-mounted pallet stacker and a fully automated lane for pallets. BILA Flex allows the customer to customise the solution according to their specific needs, whether it involves adding infeed lanes, conveyors, or other equipment.
Heede Bolcher achieves a production rate of 480 units per hour and experiences a significant improvement in safety in the production area where the robot is in operation.
A customised BILA-solution
BILA provides a standard Kawasaki robot with a few tailored adjustments that automate a palletising process previously handled manually.
Heede Bolcher prioritises having modern and efficient production equipment as a key focus, enabling them to produce a wide range of high-quality sweets at a competitive price. Previously, the palletising of candies was done manually, with an employee physically lifting the boxes of sweets onto pallets.
”We saw significant potential for streamlining by automating our palletising process, while also aiming to enhance operational reliability and spare our employees from heavy, repetitive tasks. We view an automation solution as an investment in the future,”
