Palletisation @ Vandemoortele

Vandemoortele is a European foodstuffs group producing and selling high quality nutritional products.
Vandemoortele’s activities can be divided into two basic product groups: deep frozen bakery products and margarines and fats.

This project centred on the palletisation of blocks of fat coming from two robotised production lines, and the transportation of the pallets to an underground area using a shared transport system with lifts.

We updated the existing palletisation lines and added a new robot whose tasks included the selection, picking and vacuum cleaning of the blocks. The shared transport to the underground area is brand new.

Benefits for the customer:

  • 50% reduction in manpower
  • 24/7 working days without plant disruption
  • Streamlined internal transport
  • Updated PLC control
  • Easier maintenance
  • Improved diagnostic tools
  • Safer installation
