Providing Robot Based Automation Systems across the UK
Robot-based automation ensures the kind of flexibilty you need to meet ever shorter product life cycles, new packaging designs, product variants and batch manufacturing. Compared to dedicated hard automation, robot lines are shorter and allow far better utilisation of floor space.
Robot-based automation is an excellent alternative to manual operation. In addition to increased up-time and total through-put, fewer accidents and increasingly demanding workplace legislation are compelling reasons to make the shift to robots.
Blackstar has an enviable reputation for solving customers handling problems. Combined with our superb range of conveyors, robots, stretch wrappers, strappers and palletizers, Blackstar can devise and integrate a comprehensive and cost effective solution tailored to suit customer requirements.
Depending on the application and as a result of a risk assessment carried out by Blackstar and the customer, all robots and systems supplied are fully guarded to the relevant standards. This can be in the form of a simple exclusion barrier or full perimeter fencing including light guards and automatic muting on the entry and exit of the system.
