"With the duo of driverless transport system plus HRI robot presented for the first time at FachPack, we have absolutely met the needs of the packaging industry! Jörg Thomas, Sales Manager at TRAPO AG, was overwhelmed by the great response at the exhibition stand and knows the reason: "We listen to our customers, know the requirements of the packaging industry and offer flexible overall solutions from a single source". Once again, the TRAPO AG team in Nuremberg demonstrated these special skills in a much-noticed live presentation.
Two requirements of the packaging industry were combined in one system: Equipped with an HRI robot, the TRAPO Transport Shuttle (TTS series) is absolutely spatially flexible if the robot is used as an additional hand of the human colleague. Its job: to convey, (de-)palletize, form exact layers and package. Aim of the application: The flexible duo humanizes workplaces, offers greater production reliability and ensures greater efficiency in production.
The robot works as an additional hand of the human colleague; hands and grippers can touch each other and interact safely with each other when processing workpieces.
As TRAPO Transport Shuttle (TTS series) and TRAPO Warehouse Shuttle (TWS series) the driverless transport systems work together: it is recommended to use them in combination. The TWS takes over the assembled goods and stores or retrieves them in the high bay racking.
TIM® controls and monitors

TIM® controlled and monitored the live installation presented on site in Nuremberg. In practice, TIM® provides management-relevant production key figures in real time; available worldwide at any time and thus contributes directly to plant optimization and improved results.
The trade visitors were also able to experience the overall plant competence by means of an animation – on complex plants and on the compact high-performance palletizing line from the HLP series. Looking back on a successful trade fair appearance, numerous concrete inquiries from existing customers as well as new contacts speak for themselves.
