New Year Robots Order From Premier Foods

Heralding in the New Year the systems partner agreement between Kensal Handling Systems and Kuka Robotics has proven to be the right technical and commercial combination for securing a new business tender from the largest food group in the UK.

Premier Foods Group Ltd has awarded Kensal Handling Systems a contract for the supply of a fully integrated end of line robotic palletising system.

The system will incorporate the latest stainless steel conveyoring technology for product and pallet handling from Kensal and the integration of a number of the latest generation Kuka Quantec palletising robots equipped with specialist gripper tool technology.

"The production team at Premier Foods laid down some interesting and challenging criteria in respect to the robot cell performance requirements, as well as lead times and commissioning" commented Tony Southwood, Director at Kensal.

"As a systems partner working hand in hand with our colleagues at Kuka UK we were able to offer the crucial element of excellent cooperation with Europes largest robotic manufacturer. This close working partnership allows us to prove and test many of the complex issues that arise from such a large robotic project before the final design is agreed and placed on order."  

The complete system will be installed and commissioned by Kensal in early summer 2013.
