Schneider Packaging Equipment, specialising in end-of-line solutions for case packing and palletising, has launched an integrated, End-Of-Arm Tooling (EOAT) for packaging applications.

EOAT technology involves the end of a robotic arm. The solution has combined end of arm tooling with robotics to provide what it calls a complete, integrated, solution for the automation and handling processes of robotic case packing, palletising and depalletising.

The enhanced movement of the systems tooling is flexible enough to handle various size objects such as boxes, bags, bundles, bales, cans, bottles and jars, the company claims.

Schneider begins each EOAT application by engineering modular mechanical gripper tools, vacuum tools or a combination of both, for a customised application on any new or existing robotic system.

"The advantage of using modular parts in a customized configuration is the reduction of risk and overall system costs, as well as quick delivery time,"​ said Izzat Hammad of Schneider Engineering.

The EOAT can also be designed to pick up empty pallets and slip/tier sheets from automatic dispensers or static magazines. The EOAT will automatically place the pallet, slip or tier onto load stations, eliminating the need for pallet conveyors and reducing system costs and footprint requirements.

Based in the US, Schneider Equipment​ provides a wide range of equipment and services to the complete spectrum of packaging applications, mainly in the food and beverage sectors.
