Sanofi, one of the world's leading vaccine manufacturers, has implemented an OMRON palletizing solution with robotics to enhance efficiency and relieve workers from strenuous tasks. At Sanofi's Marcy-l'Étoile site, where one billion doses are produced and distributed annually to 150 countries, the focus is on continuous improvement and streamlining processes.
One area that required attention was the end of the packaging line, where 9 kg boxes needed to be manually placed on pallets. This task involved heavy lifting and repetitive movements. To address this, Sanofi decided to install collaborative robot palletizers.
OMRON, with its 90 years of experience in machine automation and robotization, was the ideal partner for this project. The TM12 collaborative robot from OMRON was chosen for its performance, range, and payload capacity. Its compact footprint made integration seamless, especially in existing machine setups.
