  • Publication number: 20190111649
    Abstract: Structure, method and techniques for a robotic end-of-arm tool usable in the packaging industry are described herein. In an example, the end-of-arm tool is configured for attachment to a robotic arm, and may be used in case opening and sealing operations. The case may be partially opened by a packaging system from a folded-flat configuration, and may be and squared and sealed by the end-of-arm tool. In the example, first and second mandrels (or jigs) are configured to be extended to contact inside surfaces of a case. In the example, a base supports the first and second mandrels, and allows adjustment of a distance by which they are separated. In an extended state, the mandrels press on interior surfaces of opposite sides of the case, forming the case into a square configuration. Suction cups hold the minor flaps, allowing the major flaps to be folded and sealed.

  • Publication number: 20190062074
    Abstract: Techniques for product-stacking and case-packing are particularly adapted for product that is packaged in envelopes or flexibly-sided containers. Such products include may different types, such as foodstuffs, books, boxed goods, etc. In an example, a product-stacking and case-packing system may include a product-stacking assembly and a case-packing assembly. In the example, the product-stacking assembly may be configured with a plurality of pairs of flights, each pair of flights programmed to move according to operation of an associated pair servo motors, and programmed to receive and down-stack incoming product items into groups. In the example, the case-packing assembly may include a robotic arm and end-of-arm tool configured to grasp one or more groups of stacked product items, when pushed from the product-stacking assembly, and place each group of stacked product items in a case (e.g., a cardboard box).

  • Publication number: 20190065537
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods, apparatus, systems, and computer readable storage media for providing a reference to a content object in a user interface using an on-demand database service. A computing device can receive data regarding identification of a content object, where the content object is stored in a data repository external to the on-demand database service. The data regarding the content object can be stored in a persistent object in a database of the on-demand database service. A reference can be provided representing the persistent object to a display device operable to display the reference in a user interface when the display device accesses the on-demand database service. One or more graphical representations can be exposed regarding the content object for display in the user interface by the display device, where the exposed graphical representations depend at least in part on the data repository.

  • Publication number: 20190026668
    Abstract: Included are systems and methods for determining diversity spend credit for parties in a supply chain. The systems and methods can include receiving diversity spend data for parties in the supply chain and iteratively determining, for each party in the supply chain, an amount of diversity spend credit that is directly or indirectly attributable, through the supply chain, to the purchase of goods or services from a diverse party in the supply chain, which can include multiple parties that buy or sell a good or service to one another. The diversity spend credit can be determined in real time as each party reports diversity spend data, and alerts or reports can be generated if threshold diversity levels for one or multiple diversity categories are crossed. The systems and methods can include generating alternative suppliers to meet diversity objectives.

  • Publication number: 20190002208
    Abstract: Flight and indexing assemblies for automated packaging systems provide better product spacing for faster and more reliable automation. In an example, a plurality of flights may include a plate- or sheet-like body with a perpendicular flange extending from an upper portion of the flight. Two adjacent flanges contain a pouch or other product to be packaged in a case. A flange constrains an upper portion of each pouch to a confined and predetermined area, thereby aiding grippers of an end-of-arm tool to grasp the pouches. A flight and product indexing assembly is configured to control spacing between adjacent flights, and to position pouches constrained between adjacent flights, so that flights position product at predetermined locations for gripping by the end-of-arm tool.
