Projects: Pepsico Multipack Robotic Bin Handling System
Pepsico tasked TEG with undertaking scope definition and implementation of a robotic bin handling solution for its’ Multipack production line. Product from twelve Vertical Form Fill Seal (VFFS) machines are delivered to the system on six lines and diverted to storage bins as work-in-progress (WIP). The bins allow product to be re-itroduced for packing of multiple flavoured multi-packs. The total project value was $ 3.0m.
- The available factory area was very minimal.
- Available shut-down period of only six days
The project was delivered on time, under budget and achieved the required benefits of reduced labour and reduced manual handling. There were no injuries during installation & commissioning. The technology developed at the Pepsico, Bluebrid site is now being considered globally for other Pepsico sites.
