In today’s society, changes are all around us. Trends change continuously, influencing the way consumers buy and where they buy. Additionally, these changes often result in increasing variation in the production process, for both private and white label producers. The industry is struggling to quickly adapt to these changes. Besides, new players continuously enter the market.
Within Palletizing, we see that our customers in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) market typically produce 24/7 and want to produce locally and close to natural resources. However, a shortage of manpower and/or qualified technical personnel is a problem.
In addition, 24/7 production requires a flexibly deployable workforce which cannot always be realized. Also, the often physically challenging and repetitive work at a production line causes problems with the sustainable employability of employees.
Besides shortage of manpower and/or qualified technical personnel, we often see that production halls do not have enough square meters available for a large technical installation. Traditional robot solutions are large, rigid and inflexible. Additionally, these solutions often ask for a large investment and their reusability is low. Hence, Smart Robotics has developed a suitable solution.
