The use of robots for placing products in cartons and transfer of cartons and products between different stations in the packaging lines is very common in all industries. High speed pick-and-place robots for placing small items like chocolate, cookies or other food stuff in packages are often combined with a visual observation system for identifying products and their physical orientation. The vacuum system often consists not only of a vacuum pump and suction cups but also of valves and vacuum switches. Both centralized and decentralized vacuum systems exist.
