SCM are in the final stages of commissioning our compact robotic slitter unload system for one of our European customers.

The customer required an automated system to help deal with the growing demand from its European customer base which has been compounded by increasing labour costs.

The facility required a material handling solution for automatically labelling palletising rolls from a slitting machine.


SCM was selected as a supplier for this project due to our strong track record in delivering automated roll handling systems within the flexible packaging industry.

The system allows our customer to comfortably keep up with the slitting machine’s capacity of 185 rolls per hour. The customer also now relies on only 1 operator to monitor the line.

We utilise a KUKA KR210 6 axis Robot with 2700mm reach. The use of a multi-functional gripper allowed for a pneumatic probe to pick from within the core of the roll as well as the ability to pick interleave sheets utilising a set of 4 vacuum cups.

The system also includes an innovative dual function label applicator capable of labelling the core and the outside diameter of the roll.

Robot palletising is top of the agenda for SCM! Another successful installation of our reel handling equipment!
