Motion Controls Robotics to Exhibit at CPP Expo

Friday, Aug 14, 2015

Motion Controls Robotics, Inc (MCRI) will display their unique capabilities for robotic roll handling in booth #4421 during the combined Converting and Package Printing (CPP) Expo and Graph Expo, September 13-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

Robotic roll handling is an application where Motion Controls Robotics has gained a variety of experience over the years from smaller, lighter weight rolls such as roofing to large, heavy rolls of adhesive tape to bulky rolls of insulation. Each job requires a custom solution, flexible end of arm tool, and a durable robot. Motion Controls Robotics has designed a variety of robotic roll handling systems, including palletizing, packaging, machine tending, and general roll/material handling. MCRI has experience developing end of arm tools that allow the robot to have a dual purpose saving the customer money on robotics and floor space. Lastly, MCRI uses only industry leading FANUC robots for their applications. FANUC robots are extremely reliable with uptime of 80,000 hours mean time between failures. FANUC’s robot selection also features a variety of robots with world class reach and payload.

Rolls are typically heavy or bulky and having people moving these can cause ergonomic issues and even injury. Automating roll handling improves the safety and improves the efficiency of the process. MCRI can also pair a SmartCart® Automatic Guided Cart solution into the robotic roll handling application to take away or deliver rolls to the robot cell.

Motion Controls Robotics is offering in conjunction with the CPP Expo free preventative maintenance for one year with the purchase of a new robotic roll handling system. This offer is worth more than $900 for each robot in the system. Come see a Motion Controls Robotics’ representative in booth #4421 to pick up a certificate for free preventative maintenance for when the time comes to automate.

Motion Controls Robotics would like to offer free registration to the 2015 CPP Expo to all their current and potential customers using the customer priority code 30592.
