Komcan successfully installs a CoBo-Stack MBO at the Montmagny, Que., factory of Marquis Imprimeur, a division of Lakeside Book Company specializing in print runs of one to 5,000 copies.
The MBO CoBo-Stack is a cobot, a collaborative robot operating without a protective cage. Stacks of products, for example folded notebooks, are transported between the exit and the table of the CoBo-Stack. There, the cobot takes the piles and places them on pallets. This relieves the operator of any physical work and saves employee fatigue.
“We are excited to announce the sale of the CoBo-Stack MBO. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to providing industry-leading solutions and helping our customers achieve their automation goals,” said Brad Ranson, national sales manager at Komcan (Georgetown, Ont.), a provider of Komori offset press solutions and MBO advanced postpress cobots and folders.
“The entire Marquis team appreciates the professionalism and service of Komcan. Our new Cobo-Stack offers us production flexibility and is very appreciated by our operators because it helps limit the risk of injury or physical discomfort long-term. It allows them to concentrate more on product quality control and thereby increasing the production rate,” said Yannick Blanchette, Montmagny plant manager.
