Robotic case erector and packer

Case Erection and Case Packing

Products are conveyed in to our robotic cell and are then indexed ready for packing. A box is erected and then the products are placed inside and conveyed out of the cell and into a tape machine

Robotic palletiser

Compact Palletising Systems

Products enter the cell and are then palletised.​

Layer cards, barcode readers and other equipment can be added to the system. 

Small footprint, can fit in to existing locations.

One project involved adding rise and fall doors in place of light guards as well as improve the picking position of the pallets and cardboard bases. This helped us in two ways: firstly, brought the cell more in line with current safety standards and secondly, decreased downtime/ increased Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) due to a reduced number of miss picks and nuisance trips.


The projects we have worked together on have all been completed in a timely and professional manner. The work was adequately staffed and supervised and we look forward to the opportunity to work with them again on future projects.


We've used Solent Automation for robot programming and installation. Every project they have been involved with has  always been completed on time and to a high standard.

Their knowledge of the project is really high, and the support we receive has also be world class.

At the time of writing, Solent Automation has installed 3 automated robotic systems in to our facility, We have 2 palletisers and 1 case erector and packer.

We were looking for automation for around a year and nothing was suitable, until we found Solent Automation. Not only are they really great value for money with a <18 month ROI, but their systems are very compact so they work well with the limited space we have available in our production lines.


We are already in discussions to make further investments in to automation with Solent Automation in the future.
