    GreCon Inc. Sparks are a very common danger. Although they may not be readily apparent, this does not mean that they do not exist. In most cases, close attention is focused on this problem only after it is too late, namely when there has been an explosion or fire. A dull tool, damaged fan bearing, an overhead motor or electric sparks, foreign bodies in the conveyed material, defective parts on the production line, and friction generating processes are causes of these events.

    Is Now the Time to Consider a Robot Palletizer? (Whitepaper)

    Premier Tech Chronos - Many core industries: mineral, food, chemical, pet food, feed, seed, agriculture, and others use bags or sacks as a means of storing and transporting their products. Most operations start out stacking bags manually and then eventually end up with some form of automatic palletizing. When does a company make this shift to automation? What must be considered before making this change? This paper attempts to discuss these questions in light of the recent boom in robotic palletizing.
