Myllyn Paras, a food manufacturer based in Hyvinkää, Finland, has found an innovative way to automate its palletizing operations. It did so by using collaborative robots that are designed for tasks that are heavy or too strenuous for humans to carry out. Together with Dimalog Oy, and OMRON Certified Partner and system integrator which specialises in mobile robotics and cobots, the company developed a robotics palletizing solution for the job.
The introduction of the OMRON cobots has reduced the issues related to workloads at the workstation. Myllyn Paras employees have said that working at this station has been a much more pleasant experience since the robot was introduced.
Aki Hänninen concludes: “Working with OMRON has been a delight for Dimalog Oy. In the future, we plan to develop similar, easily accessible palletising cell solutions that will bring new benefits to both of our companies.”
