The ILERBOX system from TMI is unlike anything else available in the UK. We are very much looking forward to talking to Midlands Machinery Show visitors about it and our own range of robotic palletising and mechanical handling solutions,” says Nick Cesare, managing director at PACE Mechanical Handling. “The shortage of labour is one of the most significant challenges faced by packers today. By introducing robotic packing, it is possible to reduce the number of people needed, increase throughput and lower downtime.
PACE has been designing, installing and servicing automated packing solutions since 1996 and in that time has worked with more than 200 fresh produce growers and packers, automating the packing of potatoes, carrots and onions, among other crops.
Thanks to its long-standing partnership with Motoman of Japan, PACE Mechanical Handling offers a wide of robots, from pick and place up to specialist heavy lifting models. By having its own team of fabricators and software engineers and extensive experience in designing and installing complete production lines, Nick and his team can deliver everything from a small automated packing robot to a complete turnkey solution.
