A high degree of automation can be found in the high-tech and pharmaceutical industries. This tends to be at the process level, since handling and placement of components or mixing of raw materials needs to be of a high accuracy. These industries have a complex manufacturing process, with a single batch having over 1,000 non-linear sequence operations. This production complexity is sometimes contrasted with human-centric handling processes – manual loading of raw materials, buckets, totes & liners & trolleys for inter-process movements. The end product tends to be high-value, variable-volume and small size.
At RM Group, we can call on our over 25 years experience of industrial automation to analyse and solve the inter-process transport problems often presented. Our line of lightweight AMRs are ideally suited to this environment, able to work between line processes and safely with production staff.
Automated Guided Vehicles & Autonomous Mobile Robots
As a value provider for ABB Mobile Robotics Partners Network, RMGroup has an in-depth understanding of automation and good technical knowledge. On this basis we are able to integrate Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) with other systems to fully optimise support to our customers.
Robotic Pick and Place
Robotic Pick & Place Cell - for consistent quality, high production throughputs and safe working processes for all industries. Pick and place bags, containers, cartons, boxes, trays and more with our modular flexible robotic end of line case packing solution.
The backbone to our Robotic Automation offerings is our range of Robot Palletising systems. Supplied from stock and to budget, they can provide instant relief on operational overheads. A flexible and efficient method of end-of-line palletising, built to suit any configuration. RMGroup can complement with aftersales support from UK wide service locations.
High-speed state-of-the-art material handling robots suitable for many industries including food, beverage, cosmetic and pharmaceutical. The IRB 360 family includes variants with payloads of 1 kg, 3 kg, 6 kg, and 8 kg and reaches of 1130 mm and 1600 mm—meaning there is an IRB 360 for almost every need.
Pallet Wrapping Systems
Stabilise and protect your palletised goods with a pallet wrapping system. Suitable for all many types of palletised products. RMGroup has collaborated with a leading global palletwrapping specialist to formulate its own range of stretch wrapping systems. With their partner's 35 years of experience in the field and over 25 years of experience within the packaging and automation industry, RMGroup have developed a range of user-friendly, highly efficient wrapping machines to suit every requirement.
Tubs, Buckets and Drums
At RMGroup we are able to deliver innovative systems that are capable of processing a variety of products. Handling of tubs, buckets and drums becomes effortless for an industrial robot. The versatility of a robotic solution will add value to your production process, increase capacity and improve quality.
This was the first equipment we have sourced from RMGroup and, given our time constraints, they fully met our brief. The pick and place cell rapidly improved our efficiencies and outputs by 40%, helping to reduce labour costs and allowing us to be more competitive for our flowpack range of products. Our working relationship with RMGroup was very good during a challenging period time wise, and although we have no immediate plans for further installations, any future expansion plans will certainly entail cooperation with RMGroup
