Apex Automation and Robotics is an Australian Company that specialises in the design and manufacture of special purpose automation machines and robotic systems. Apex Automation and Robotics’ engineers and project managers have installed over 60 systems including more than 12 robotic cells.
Last week a major international printing and mailing company has awarded Apex Automation and Robotics a contract to implement a new materials handling system in their Sydney distribution centre.
This new system is custom-designed to accumulate, marshall and divert cases of various sizes at a throughput rate of up to 2000 boxes/hr. A programmable logic controller (PLC) with an operator’s interface is used to control the overall system and monitor the operation.
This project is a full turnkey system, engineered from concept through to mechanical and electrical design as well as software development by Apex Automation and Robotics’ engineering team. It will help the client increase their productivity and it offers maximum flexibility, which is a main requirement in this fast moving industry.
