EDL Packaging Engineers, Inc. (EDL) has aligned with Yaskawa Motoman as a strategic partner to offer robotic integration into its packaging systems. This partnership will expand EDL’s current offering to include more precise bundling of bags and pouches, case packing, and total line integration.

Yaskawa Motoman robots provide EDL’s packaging systems greater packaging flexibility, speed, and precision, in addition to optimizing performance and life cycle costs. The unified controls platforms benefits customers, by allowing system to be controlled from one central packaging control system, rather than a standalone system. In addition, the robot can be integrated with Allen Bradley control panels, already utilized by EDL, simplifying set-up and operations.

This partnership increases EDL’s portfolio of integrated ancillary offerings, including labeling (print and application), inspection systems (check weight, vision/x-ray and metal detection), palletizing, and film role handling through use of lift carts and jib cranes.  Ancillary offerings will vary depending on customer goals and objectives.
