30% more productivity and fewer failures with robots and vision system

05 December 2018

Combilo, a leading fruit and vegetables wholesaler in the Netherlands, recently installed a new robot assisted packaging line that increased productivity by 30%. The new packaging line, built by systems integrator EasyPack Technologies, includes parallel robots and a vision system from Omron.

Combilo specializes in the import, export, packing, storage, shipment, and distribution of fresh fruit and vegetables to retailers. One of the products it packages is the bell pepper "traffic light” containing one red, one yellow and one green pepper. Not surprisingly, this was a slow and labor-intensive process, but with the new robot-assisted packaging line Combilo can now perform the traffic light packaging much more efficiently and with significantly fewer failures. 

The full range of benefits includes: 
• 30% more productivity
• Cost savings in manpower
• Fewer failures caused by non-spec package weight
