Labor savings, ergonomics and flexibility are the driving forces behind the growing use of palletizers and robots in the packaging industry.
Advanced software may require integration with vision and tactile sensors as well as sophisticated communication technology. In the near future, EOL machines will be intimately integrated into ERP and logistics systems, providing a link between the factory and the courier service. They will allow certification of pallet integrity and handle all deliveries and returns to stock. This is why B&R places top priority on compliance with international standards and support for open architectures in order to be optimally prepared for the next great evolution in the packaging industry.
