Cascina Italia processes millions of eggs per day. By using a UR5 robot in their production facilities they have improved flexibility and operational efficiency. The collaborative robot relieves employees from the strenuous process of preparing bulky packages for large-scale distribution. The added benefit of the UR5’s fenceless-operation allows the robot to work side-by-side with employees on the production lines.
The business transformation
The extremely competitive nature of the fresh food market requires that Cascina Italia can react quickly to market demands. In order to do this effectively, Cascina Italia has to optimise internal processes to free up resources. Traditional robot solutions can be expensive and difficult to implement into a live production environment.
Safety is also a major concern. Cascina Italia has limited space for additional equipment, and any solution that they choose will have to be installed in close proximity to employees.
