2019 Manufacturing Innovation Award: Just Born
By installing integrated delta robots with end-effector tooling that can grip and package its single PEEPS Chicks marshmallow treats without damaging the delicate product, Just Born was able to automate its previously hand-packed PEEPS Chicks operation. A robotic pick-and-place system with finger-like grippers gently picks up the tender PEEPS and places them into carton packaging. Randall Copeland, Just Born’s senior vice president of operations/supply chain, discusses the award-winning project.
