0,1T Handling of cores


A paper board mill wanted to replace manual core handling with an automated handling system, primarily for ergonomic reasons. The automation of core handling was also part of their general automation process to provide improved productivity in the paper board mill.


Manual handling of cores was replaced by Solving AGVs fitted with height-adjustable gripping devices to collect cores automatically from a floor-level conveyor belt. The AGVs also transport the cores to another conveyor belt that transfers them to a storage area. The cores can be reused in production if required.
