Packaging machinery module
The Pic-N-Place module is designed to pick products efficiently thanks to a color-coded docking station and it can operate on a continuous basis without interruption.
Standard-Knapp's Pic-N-Place module picks the product from the infeed conveyor and gently places it into the bottom of the empty case. This module can be easily retrofitted onto existing 939S and 949S Versatron case packers. Standard Knapp’s 2-axis servo controlled Pic-N-Place module features a variety of heavy-duty grippers for soft handling and optimum control of the entire pack of product. Engineered to grab a product in the most secure position or spot, the Pic-N-Place module acts similarly to a human’s arms offering smooth operation. The gripping action and the distance the product travels into the case is set from the human machine interface (HMI). The color-coded docking station provides easy change over, a slide-on lock, and couplings designed for positive, no error connections. The Pic-N-Place module is engineered to run constantly and built to last for decades.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
