Foodmach Corporate Profile

Robomatrix Low Level®

Robomatrix Low Level®

Foodmach has worked closely with some of the world’s leading food and beverage companies to develop and manufacture the award-winning Robomatrix®, the world’s fastest and most flexible palletising solution.

The best analogy for how Robomatrix® works is that it is like playing Tetris with robots and cartons. Our proprietary robotic pattern-forming software, Robowizard®, is provided as a drag-and-drop interface that enables size changeovers in minutes, not days – with no PLC technician required. It is simple to use, with unbelievable flexibility, accuracy, and reliability. 

Robotmatrix® can gently handle packs in excess of ten layers per minute, with absolute precision and reliability of layer patterns. This eliminates unwanted pack turning or layer pattern problems common with conventional palletising systems.

The cartons are manipulated from a single stream, orientated and positioned laterally, so they accumulate in the programmed layer pattern. Once the layer is formed, it is lowered onto the pallet hoist and discharged onto the full pallet out-feed conveying system, from where it is normally distributed to a pallet stretch wrapping station.
