Jorgensen develops robotic technology for food industry

Abbott Laboratories, a major infant formula manufacturer in Ireland, has expanded its production potential through the integration of new robotic technology. The concept enables the manufacturer to pick and place items such as scoops, cans, cups, cartons and stand-up pouches at higher speeds and with greater accuracy.

Abbott Laboratories is in the middle of a major expansion of its baby food division, and needed to increase production capacity while at the same time improve safety and hygiene. Danish engineering firm Jorgensen was chosen for this project to deliver a complete can packaging line - from the depalletising of empty cans to the palletising of the finished product (milk powder and scoops).
