Automation at joke

In the industry, constant efforts are being made to find ways to optimize the quality and efficiency of applied processes. This fosters innovation and engagement with new techniques.

In recent years, we have successfully established a new business field in the field of automation. High personnel costs and skills shortages have led to increasing interest in this segment.

joke mechanix GmbH offers automation solutions in many areas. Our portfolio ranges from small applications to fully automated packaging lines for food bags. We can also adapt our automation systems to third-party machines.

Robots by Fanuc

Robots are increasingly finding applications in automation.

joke mechanix GmbH uses robots by Fanuc to perform precise and consistently repeated processes around the clock.

Their areas of application are diverse and facilitate stable and safe production.



Offline programming refers to programming the robot outside of its "normal" production environment, on an external computer. Offline programming requires only about 1/10 of the time that would be required for online teaching to expand a program.

This minimizes production interruptions and maximizes efficiency.

In addition, offline programming allows for the simulation of programs in advance. This enables early detection and correction of errors without the need for collisions. Furthermore, the parameters of the system or cell, as well as the joint angles, speed, and acceleration of the robot can be monitored and optimized.

Our engineering team at joke develops offline programming concepts for robot cells. In the example shown here, this involves an individual machining cell in combination with a Nachi robot.

The focus here is not on packaging or moving bags, but on automating processes related to surface finishing. This can theoretically include anything from simple movement of workpieces to complex high-gloss polishing.

In the image, you can see the robot storing new workpieces in its tray and polishing them one by one. Contact us and we will work with you to develop a tailored solution that automates your processes.


Robo systems

Automatic packaging systems are also available for our converting lines. We offer solutions with robots, as well as individual automation systems.
The video shows a 4-up paper compound bag line with a gripper system to automatically pack the bag stacks into cartons. The number of cartons as well as the number of bags can be freely selected.
A control function places bags on a separate deposit conveyor for quality assurance.
The Robo and packaging systems can also be used on existing customer machines.
