Case Study Focus: Automatic Palletizing Of Baked Bread
Key System Solutions: Robotic Palletizing & Depalletizing, Freezer Loading
Product Handled: Hawaiian Sweet Bread and Rolls
This fifty year old bread company recently built a new facility, more equipment was added, including a robot and freezer system, to improve handling and shipping of the company’s breads. Hytrol conveyors were installed to compliment this equipment.
Hytrol's equipment begins moving the bread after it is received from the ovens. Workers place the wrapped bread in boxes and these boxes are placed on one of two inclines which junction to two overhead conveyor lines.
The boxes move overhead to a mezzanine where a robot palletizes the boxes of bread. The bread is conveyed by chain roller conveyor into a -20°F freezer. After the bread is frozen, a second robot de-palletizes the boxes. They move down an incline to a Hytrol high-speed sortation conveyor located under the mezzanine. The boxes are sorted here for loading on trucks.
The company is very pleased with the Hytrol equipment. Their old system was primarily manual. Since the installation of the Hytrol conveyor and robotics, they have been able to double throughput.
