NOVA Automation at PACK EXPO 2023, Booth SL-6314


Showcasing a NOVA Automation palletizing solution in our booth at PACK EXPO is a natural choice.  NOVA Automation is a long-standing integration partner of Kawasaki Robotics, whose mission is to solve complex challenges with innovative automated packaging solutions that transform processes, people, and businesses.


NOVA Automation brings 25+ years of automation knowledge to the table. Even though they can tackle any size challenge, at PACK EXPO 2023, we will showcase their mobile palletizing cell integrated with a MiR 500. The Mobile Palletizing Cell allows companies of all sizes to palletize their product more consistently and efficiently. It’s as simple as picking up the palletizing cell with a forklift, placing it where you want it, connecting it to power and air, and it’s ready to go.

The video below provides an in-depth look at NOVA's entry-level robotic palletizing solution, the MPC -80 mobile palletizing cell, in action at a customer facility in Ohio.

ICON Robotics at PACK EXPO 2023, Booth SL-6314


ICON Robotics is an automation solutions provider that has been “Engineering Better Outcomes”, since 1972. ICON is much more than an integrator, with in-house capabilities to Design, Engineer, Manufacture, Acceptance Test, Install, Service, and Support the entire system. Equipment engineered to work together simplifies operation and eliminates component redundancy, reducing complexity and cost while increasing uptime.


At PACK EXPO, we will showcase ICON’s High-Speed MultiPack Palletizer featuring a Kawasaki CP180 Robot equipped with an ICON custom-designed, full-layer, Palletizing / DePalletizing gripper. The simulation demonstrates handling entire pallet layers of product in Palletizing and DePalletizing applications. Production rates of over 100 cartons per minute is easily achieved.

APERA AI at PACK EXPO 2023, Booth SL-6314


Apera AI can give your robots human-like speed, sight, and perception. Making your bin picking, packaging, and assembly workcells fast, reliable and precise is now possible.


"We saw an almost 9% increase in accuracy to 99% through the [Apera Vue] vision system. From a cost savings perspective, we have been able to reduce repair and manpower and improve part quality into our customer." Don Cumming, General Manager, Flex-N-Gate


Come see for yourself at PACK EXPO how fast an APERA-powered Kawasaki robot can pick and accurately rotate and place random chip bags. The robot is given pose estimation and path planning information through the Apera Vue software embedded in its controller. A safe path that avoids collisions is planned. Because the object is trained into an AI neural network using CAD drawings or 3D scans, these steps can happen very quickly.
