Pacepacker Services, a well-known equipment manufacturer and system integrator of pick and place solutions, has expanded its product portfolio to include Festo’s range of Mechatronics pick and place systems. Unlike most other mechanical pick and place solutions, which tend to be highly bespoke and custom built, the Mechatronics ‘off the shelf’ range offers quick and cost effective pick and place components.
Pacepacker is an integrator for a number of leading robotic equipment manufacturers, enabling it to offer an extensive portfolio of solutions able to meet all project specifications. Applications usually range from one to six axes with pick-up devices for handling one or multiple products at a time (complete or part layers). Typical uses include projects in the food, bottling, FMCG and pet food sectors.
The Mechatronics range comprises tried and tested pneumatic, electrical, mechanical, control and sensory components, models and systems which can be easily configured to provide pick and place solutions, tailored to the end user. Typical life expectancies are in excess of 5 million metres of travel.
