  • The container is set in a container parking place of the PICKLA using a forklift truck.
  • The container type is automatically detected using sensor technology and the PICKLA its unloading grid based on these signals.
  • The parts are taken undefined with a freely moving magnet on a linear and swivel axis and placed in the hopper of the step conveyor.
  • Using the step conveyor the sorting parts are transferred pre-separated on the sorting rail.
  • Incorrectly oriented and excess parts get back into the hopper of the step conveyor via a return feed slide.
  • Parts already in the correct orientation run at the end of the sorting rail through a demagnetising unit.
  • Afterwards they are transferred with PICK&PLACE handling on a workpiece carrier, which is located on the pallet conveyor belt.
  • Via the pallet transport the sorting parts get to the individual stations, which are linked with each other through the system.
  • After passing through the last processing station the sorting parts are transported into our packing station.
  • There are two parking places integrated in the station to enable a container change during operation.
  • The robot first grips an empty pallet cage and places this on a buffer area.
  • In this buffer area the finish processed parts are picked up by the robot from the pallet conveyor and put in the pallet cage.
  • Full pallet cages are then palletised by the robot in the parking place.
