WestRock APS Packaging Systems offer a range of robotic packaging systems, which provide customers with future-proof packaging automation and a firm step towards Industrie 4.0.
The use of robotics within the industrial sector is continuing to grow at a steady rate. As companies look to reduce labour and increase efficiency, automation and robotics are providing the solution.
Robots are a flexible solution that can offer a fully automated or Cobot packaging systems. They allow companies to introduce increased efficiency through automation with the possibility to upgrade left open.
KUKA Robotics Germany is a system partner who works closely with WestRock APS on providing robotic solutions that fulfil customer requirements. Due to the intelligent software of KUKA’s robots, they can flexibly perform multiple movements with both speed and exact precision.
KUKA’s simple software allows our engineers to manipulate the robots and fully integrate them into WestRock APS packaging equipment. This, teamed with full service and support, allows WestRock APS to provide a succinct and successful solution for customers.
Robotic packaging systems improve both efficiency and performance within the packaging and warehouse distribution industries, providing you with sustainable, future-proof solutions.
Our range of robotic packaging machines include:

Robotic Tray/Case Packer
The WestRock APS Robotic Tray/Case Packer is a fast and hassle-free way to load your products into boxes ready for distribution. Our robotic Case packer is designed to reduce supply chain costs and manual labour.
It automatically packs your product into cases, ready for distribution. These standard shelf-ready machines are fully customisable to suit any product type.
Robotic Tray/Case Loader
The Robotic Tray/Case Loader is often combined with robotic collation. Using a robotic packaging solution for carton collation and loading can mean potential speeds of up to 200 cartons per minute, depending on product size and format.
This is an impressive output that suits high-speed production environments.
A single cell Robotic Palletiser can operate up to 20 cycles per minute, depending on the product and gripper selection. This machine is capable of faster palletisation than a standard gantry palletiser increasing savings on time and money.
Our palletisers are fully automatic and can move with the same accuracy, speed and precision, no matter the size of the robot or the product.
Here at WestRock APS Packaging Systems we can provide standard, adaptable robotic packaging automation solutions that can be fully integrated into warehouse dispatch or current shelf-ready packaging systems.
WestRock APS Packaging Systems design and manufacture standard gripper head styles which can be individually adapted to suit any product specification. By individually tailoring gripper heads to suit any product type means that robotic systems can be used to packaging anything from small, delicate and fragile ornaments, to large, heavy and clumsy aggregates.
Due to the intelligent software of KUKA’s robots, they can flexibly perform multiple movements with both speed and exact precision. Robotic packaging systems improve both efficiency and performance within the packaging and warehouse distribution industries, providing you with sustainable, future-proof solutions including:
