The brand new ABB Omnicore IRB 1100

The brand new ABB Omnicore IRB 1100 has arrived. The first impressions is that the new teach pendant and its GUI (Graphgical User Interface) are very intuitive, which is great as this is going to be a training robot.

Control Panel Build

Control panel build for the four-stage auto packaging machine being tested in our workshop. Using an Omron PLC and HMI to operate Yaskawa inverters and servo drives.

Four-Stage Auto Packaging Machine

Currently working a flexible four-stage auto packaging machine capable of feeding a range of empty boxes, filling them with the desired product, tape sealing the box and then feeding them to a collection area. The control system uses an Omron PLC and HMI to operate Yaskawa inverters and servo drives.

New automated box packer and sealer designed, built, and tested here at Pelican Systems.

It’s capable of handling weights up to 15kgs, but heavier loads can be utilised.

It will handle boxes with lengths of between 510mm-1190mm and a maximum height of 380mm, however the system can be designed to handle bigger boxes.
