production and pack out automation - Wolverine Forest Park
Wolverine Packing Co. needed a high-speed automated case packing and palletizing solution for the company’s new greenfield meat processing facility in Forest Park, MI. The equipment needed to be installed in several distinct phases to accommodate the facility’s startup timeline and evolving needs.
- Box taping
- Control panels
- Weigh check
- X-ray systems
- Barcode reader to sort product
- Three FANUC R2000 robots each tending three palletizing areas
- Proprietary flexible EOAT picks up boxes of varying size and weight
- One pallet dispenser
- Pallet conveyors
- Slip sheet feeder
- Pallet wrapper
- Manual pallet loading area
The two-part solution evolved to meet the customer’s production requirements and retained a modular design for flexibility and future expansion.
