Advancements in Process Automation & Material Handling
Hiperbaric Automation Systems provides operational efficiencies, substantial labor reduction, increased productivity, and strict traceability. Our extensive experience allows us to solve any industrial challenge to improve HPP operations at any stage by offering a wide variety of fully customized comprehensive solutions tailored to the production needs of our customers.
HPP Automation: Robotic Load and Unloading
As a post-packaging process, high pressure processing (HPP) requires the loading of packaged products into baskets, which is often a manual process. Pre-feeders and robotic unload solutions allow manufacturers to improve processing efficiencies, while also reducing heavy loading, which can result in injuries, and labor costs.
Material Handling Equipment
Material handling is known to be tedious, labor-intensive and repetitive. Companies can optimize production, improve efficiency, and promote operator safety by using custom carriers, carrier carts, elevators, turntables, tote-dumpers, pre-feeders, and dryers.
Minute RFID & Data Matrix
RFID tags and Data Matrix codes placed on the HPP baskets can help manufacturers track inventory, automate setup, and provide strict traceability and reliability ensuring that all products are processed.
Conveyors, Robotic Pick & Place and Robotic Case Packing
Increase throughputs with shaker conveyors, robotic case packers, and robotic pick & place systems. After HPP, shaker conveyors remove the excess water on the packaging. Robotics can then pick single or multiple items to pack single or multiple cases per cycle.
Benefits of an HPP Automation Line
Automating the HPP process through Hiperbaric’s Automation Solutions offers many advantages including increased productivity, cost savings, traceability and operator safety.
- Maximize production productivity by increasing throughput, production line speed and efficiency.
- Reduce overall labor costs by 60% by moving from a manual batch process to an automated process.
- Provide strict traceability and reliability ensuring that all products are treated and packaged correctly.
- Increase safety by preventing operator injuries that could occur with manual, repetitive movements.
Benefits of an HPP Automation Line
Evolution Fresh, a Bolthouse Farms subsidiary, uses Hiperbaric automation equipment to HPP its cold-pressed juices. The company reports the following benefits, including 15% improvement in overall equipment effectiveness, 90% reduction in injuries, 50% reduction in transportation waste and 50% reduction in line labor.
As a post-packaging process, HPP requires the loading of packaged products into baskets, a manual process. Pre-feeder stations and robotic unload solutions allow Evolution Fresh to improve processing efficiencies, while reducing potential manual labor injuries and costs.
