Our installations include servo driven indexing conveyors, powered roller conveyors, belt conveyors, pallet conveyors, rotary table conveyors, sorting and merge conveyors, drag chain conveyors, and so much more. Combining our conveyor experience with our robotic and gantry experience makes Adaptive the go-to partner for your material handling needs.
SKU Sorting and Grouping
More and more processes and packaging systems are requiring handling of multiple SKU numbers simultaneously. A creative approach to SKU handling, grouping, and sorting can make large differences in equipment costs, space utilization, and system capacity. Adaptive has delivered some very creative solutions to SKU sorting and grouping, developed and delivered some extensive traffic management systems, and welcomes the opportunity to review your requirements.
Traffic management in major material handling systems is key to the success of the project. Adaptive employs simulation software to model and analyze system traffic and part handling to ensure success before the project ever starts.
Pick & Place Systems
Pick and place systems consist of equipment simply tasked with moving components from one location to another. Choices for this type of equipment include 6-axis arms, 4-axis arms, Cartesian robots, walking bars, and more. In some cases, this type of equipment is integrated with vision guidance to locate, orient, and pick components, such as with a flex-feeder. In other cases, this equipment communicates with encoders and vision guidance to achieve real-time picking from a moving conveyor. Partnering with the correct systems integrator makes even some of the most challenging processes a reality.
