ProMach Quest Box BotThe maker of a system that robotically packs pallets for tractor-trailer shipping has released a simpler version to appeal to a wider range of manufacturers.

Quest Industrial says its standardized Box Bot QB300 has the same features and benefits as the original Box Bot, but is built for manufacturers that don’t need much additional customization. Box Bot users can design and automate precise pallet patterns for boxes, bags or other products to optimize shipping space in semi-trailers. The system’s footprint starts as small as 8 feet by 10 feet.

“There are many customer applications that are relatively straightforward and ultimately don’t need something that’s extremely complex,” Quest Director of Sales Ryan Womble said in a news release. “We’ve standardized and pre-defined key configurations of the Box Bot, while not sacrificing capability or functionality. Our standardized version enables us to offer a more cost-effective palletizing solution to customers with shorter lead times.”

TheQuest will debut the Box Bot QB300 series at the packaging industry’s Pack Expo and Healthcare Packaging Expo, both held concurrently at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Sept. 27-29.

Monroe, Wisconsin-based Quest is a brand of Covington, Kentucky-based ProMach, which serves pharmaceutical and industrial manufacturers as well as makers of food, beverages, and personal/household goods.
