Robots For Short Stacks…Of Pancakes

The system uses four of ABB’s Flexpicker delta robots and can stack 400 pancakes per minute. The system has been programmed to recognise and track the position of the pancakes on the conveyor using a camera and the algorithm even allows the system to identify overlapping product.
