Hop Pole firm putting robotics under the spotlight




Hop Pole-based automated palletizing systems specialist PACE Mechanical Handling will be putting robotics under the spotlight at this year’s Potato Industry Event.

The event takes place at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate next Wednesday and Thursday, 20 and 21and the PACE team will be demonstrating how the latest advances in robotics technology are revolutionising manufacturing and process industries.

PACE sales director Nick Cesare said: “We are demonstrating the capabilities of our competitively priced universal sack closer (USC) for smaller growers and the GP7 pick-and-place robot. It’s exciting to be working in an industry where robotics is playing an increasingly greater role in the manufacturing process."

The USC incorporates the Newlong stitching machine combined with customised handling equipment that adds versatility to close sack filling solutions. The machines can handle any size of pre-made sack and with flexible options on sealing, are designed to meet customer requirements across a range of applications for food and drink processing, aggregates and animal feed.

The USC is also height adjustable and mounted on heavy duty frame. The touch screen display allows simple and easy control of timers and machine set up, and a thread break device is incorporated as standard to prevent unstitched bags.

The GP7 pick and place robot can be tailored to a customer’s exact needs and is designed to grasp, lift, and position items precisely, whatever their shape or size. This opens up endless possibilities in terms of what produce, or product types can be handled, and forms an integral part of the range of palletizing solutions available from PACE.
