Columbia/Okura LLC recently marked the milestone of shipping its 1,000th robotic palletizer.
The company has designed and commissioned many successful palletizing systems, handling a wide range of products across dozens of industries worldwide. From bag palletizing systems in abusive and harsh environments to high-speed, multi-robot, multi-picking case applications, Columbia/Okura has handled almost any type of product packaging in virtually any application.
Over the past 26 years, the team has gathered for every 100 robots sold milestone, celebrating with lunch and a team photo with the robot. However, due to COVID-19, in-person celebrations have been canceled for the last milestones (900th system sold), making this in-person celebration of 1,000 robots even better.
The 1,000th system will be sent to Cherry Farms Seed Co. in NC, with a crest on the arm to denote the 1,000th robot. The system includes the Ai1800 robot, sheet presenter, pallet dispenser, bag end-effector, bag infeed, station conveyor, and a gravity pickup conveyor.
