Optimal lineside replenishment is key to improve your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE):
- To avoid waiting time for machines
- To eliminate intermediate stock
But also: the manual operations to perform these tasks are not ergonomic and can create safety issues for operators.
Our efforts improve Line Side Replenishment (LSR), while eliminating line starvation and mistakes, and avoid operators having to perform these repetitive tasks.
Our Solution: Cobots for Material Feeding
OMRON offers a wide array of robotic solutions, not only improving throughput, but freeing workers to concentrate on value-add tasks.
Collaborative robots for material feeding.
The Cobot picks packaging consumables as cartons from one position and places them directly onto the conveyor or in the packaging machine. This reduces or even eliminates the need to manually unload these consumables.
Other examples are Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arms (SCARA) solutions that are tasked with loading bottles or other containers or high speed parallel robotic solutions used to orientate and align-items.
Benefits of an Automated Consumables Supply
- Avoids costly and time-consuming line starvation.
- Improves production consistency & output.
- Avoids repetitive tasks and reduces worker stress.
- Allows verification of the correct package and product combination through traceability.

OMRON TM Collaborative robots working alongside employees to boost the capabilities of manufacturingSee how a manufacturer of plastic containers achieves major boost in flexibility and customer satisfaction with Omron TM collaborative robot. Visit Omron Automation and read complete success story Visit system integrator partner Sure Controls Visit end user Schoeneck Containers, Inc. (SCI) Schoeneck Containers, Inc. (SCI), a family-owned, family-operated company based in Wisconsin that manufactures plastic containers for diverse consumer and commercial markets throughout the world, began considering a collaborative robotic solution to keep up with production demands in the face of a severe labor shortage. This solution would involve robotic technologies working alongside employees to augment the capabilities of SCI’s team. With the help of a Wisconsin industrial equipment distributor and system integrator named Sure Controls. SCI was able to get the robot up and running in a single day, and the team quickly saw major improvements in customer satisfaction as well as a significant boost in overall production flexibility. #Robotics #FlexibleManufacturing #Packaging #manufacturing #OmronAutomation #CollaborativeRobot
