Robotic crater : Inca Robo-Kombi

  • The same robot can cover different functions
  • Flexibility on the production, products and layout
  • Low maintenance & Quick and automatic changeover


Bottles infeed

  • Bottle feeding table with self-supporting structure in AISI 304 and stainless steel chains with 85 mm pitch.
  • The system includes :
    • Adjustable bottle guides that drive the bottles towards the pick-up heads.
    • Adjustable bottle vibrators that allow a gentle bottle feeding.
    • Bottles presence photocell that grants the right bottle dosing.

Bottle insertion

Inserting system

  • A four axes anthropomorphic robot having a payload of 450/700 Kg at wrist.

Gripping heads

  • Bottle handling system by means of individual, pneumatically operated grippers, grouped on gripping heads adapted for different sizes of crates to be handled.
  • The number of gripping heads depends on the output required.
  • The gripping heads, that could be fixed or mobile, are anchored on a stainless steel frame.

Pneumatic grippers

  • Pneumatic grippers hold the bottles by the neck.
  • The bottle neck's picking system could be either by membrane or plastic sectors and tailor made solutions might be available for different bottle neck shapes.

Crates infeed / outfeed

Crates conveyors and centering device.

  • Crates conveyors can be single or double lane.
  • A mobile centering device aligns the crates so that they are in a correct position, thus allowing an accurate bottles insertion.
  • It consists of a folded metal frame with vertical movement driven by independent pneumatic cylinders.

Format changeover

Bottles and crates change.

  • In case of different bottle/crate sizes, different set of gripping heads can be housed on a dedicated magazine (available as option).
  • The robotic head moves on top of the dedicated magazine releasing the current set of gripping heads and bottle guides, picking-up the new ones.
  • Semi-automatic changeover on crates conveyors.

  • Very gentle and accurate bottles feeding operations.
  • Improved flexibility due to the high level of automation.
  • Different layout configurations are available.
  • Easy maintenance operation.
  • Flexible system for different bottle necks.
  • Sturdy stainless steel structure and gentle product handling.
  • Fully automatic gripping heads, bottles guides and centering device changeover (available as option).
  • Optimized maintenance operations on the standing-by gripping heads (off-line) without having impact on the production.
