KP Industries

Pick and Place

Continuous, automated production can call for repetitive, accurate movement of, sometimes, heavy or awkward to handle components. KP Industries can help you optimise your production with the design, manufacture and integration of bespoke pick and place systems into your process.

Our systems can lift, lower and rotate in multiple axes and place accurately and gently, just where it is needed. Our in-house control system design complements our mechanical and electrical production and our own installation and commissioning engineers ensure that your project is completed to your satisfaction.

KP Industries are specialists in the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke automated pick and place equipment.

The implementation of a project starts with a visit from one of our engineers to capture the key requirements of the project, gathering data such as throughput, product sizes, weights and process requirements. Our team will then produce a concept design and specification which will be reviewed with the client to ensure the proposed equipment is fit for purpose and meets all the key requirements to a cost effective budget.

Once the pick and place concept is agreed, and following confirmation of contract award, the concept design is progressed by the engineering team with the use of the latest 3D Computer Aided Design and structural calculation software.

In parallel, our control system engineers will develop the control system using EPlan P8 design software. As well as pre-commission of the PLC software and development of the HMI control screens.

Once issued to manufacture, our highly skilled workshop staff will begin the process by fabricating the key structural elements, before assembling the system ready for internal testing.

Throughout the project, our project management team will be orchestrating the huge number of supplier, staff and sub-contractors that are required to bring a complex pick and place engineered system to life.

Following Factory Acceptance Testing and customer by-off, the pick and place system is dismantled and shipped to the client’s site, ready for final installation and commissioning.

All equipment is thoroughly tested and certified by our LEEA accredited engineers to provide the customer with the necessary safety and regulatory certifications required.
