ONExia is an industrial distributor, custom machine builder and robotics integrator based in Exton, Pa. Specializing in manual process automation, the company’s expertise helps manufacturers of all sizes implement custom robotic solutions that meet the production demands unique to their applications. This includes the craft beer industry.
Here’s an example: Manually loading pallets with heavy boxes presents ergonomic risks and makes it difficult to find willing workers. ONExia’s PalletizHD can optimize a brewery’s end-of-line packaging productivity. Featuring a 38-lb payload and a fully collaborative rating, the HD is a turn-key robotic palletizer that can be easily added to both new and existing manufacturing lines. Consider the approximate weight of a 24-pack of 12-oz bottled beer is 36 lbs. If you’re looking to learn more, ONExia aims to show three collaborative robotic packaging systems at Pack Expo Las Vegas, including the PalletizHD, its newest palletizing robot. From the press release:
“With companies of all sizes in every industry struggling to hire labor and fill positions for end-of-line packaging processes, the demand for automation has hit an all-time high,” says Greg Selke, CEO of ONExia Inc. “Our collaborative robotic solutions require no guarding or caging, which makes them the perfect solutions to automate applications typically done by a human as they require a similar footprint,” he added.
ONExia’s booth will also feature a collaborative robotic case erector and case packer with integrated cobots from both FANUC and Universal Robots. These systems also require no caging and guarding to operate and can be directly integrated to existing processes.
