ReelBOT – Robotic Handling Systems

Our ReelBOT Robotic systems introduced robotic handling into the packaging of reels and coils in a productive manner. Through the integration of technologies – robot, vision and sensor we are able to monitor movements throughout the various processes in the packaging operation.  When working with spools or reels nothing is perfect. We use vision and sensor systems to guide the robot through the pick and place process on loading empties to insure poorly stacked incoming materials arrive at the input feed conveyor without conflict.  As irregular flanges impact conveyance through the machine, we have to monitor positions throughout the movements within the system.  We keep close watch on the progress of each package to insure that it flows smoothly to its final loading onto the delivery pallet.  Our close attention to detail and multi technology, multi sensor approach insures non-perfect packaging media does not adversely affect your efficiency.

Autocoil – Automatic Coiler System

The MGS Group Automatic Coiling System is capable of addressing needs in various markets with coiling packaging systems. The system works with metal clad or armored cables, non-metallic conduit, PEX pipe, and other products. The system winds coils up to approximately 24”OD, and applies strap to hold the coil together as it moves through the shrink wrap and shrink tunnel machines. The system is designed to optimize productivity while minimizing floor space and is fully enclosed for safety. Once strung up, the Coiling Machine operates continuously without operator involvement.
