Quest Industrial To Exhibit & Present at the 2017 ProFood Tech Show in Chicago

Mar 15, 2017

The Quest Industrial team will be exhibiting at the 2017 ProFood Tech Show coming up, quickly, in Chicago during April 4th – 6th and we are excited! We will be showcasing our brand new version of the Boxed-Bot with a pallet dispenser built right in to the equipment. Quest’s engineers understood that the traditional pallet dispensers can get bulky which makes the palletizing cell larger than what most plants’ size can accommodate, so they designed the dispenser to go under the palletizing robot to keep the cell efficient and compact. However, to display one of our favorite tasks to automate, the Quest Industrial team will retrofit this new Boxed-Bot to Tote Load so you can see our award winning designs in action.

Quest’s Robotic Tote Loading systems can pick from 5 pieces up to 80 pieces per minute, with a compact footprint starting at 12’x12’. All of our systems are proven and can be designed and built for washdown environments, but each is customizable to your needs. Whether you need to pick 1 or 2 pieces at a time, to accommodate for rates, we have the tooling to do it and if we don’t, we will design one just for you! Make sure to add Quest Industrial, Booth #2932, to your ProFood Tech Agenda and speak with one of our Robotic Experts.

Wonder what else we are up to? Then don’t miss Don Wickstrum, Quest Industrial’s President & Owner, presenting at the ProFood Tech Innovation Stage on Wednesday, April 5th at 11:30am to learn about Filling Your Labor Shortage with Robotic Automation. Finding reliable labor is proving to be a difficult task, but Quest Industrial’s Engineers have listed to your needs. They developed several pieces of equipment for those hard to fill, difficult, and repetitive jobs. Quest’s Robotic Automation Systems have reduced work-related lost-time claims, downtime, and have sped up production processes. Don will identify tasks which robotic automation can complete and how to better utilize employees by repurposing their skills into more fulfilling jobs. Packing product into cases is a perfect example of a task robots can complete effortlessly and Quest has developed the Quik Pick & Pack and the Quik Pick & Pack Plus for just that. Quest has a wide variety of experience and knowledge in palletizing, another task apt for robots, and offers several types created to your specifications. One palletizer offered is our Boxed-Bot, a compact modular cell with less than an 8’x10’footprint that boasts our Original QBox Pallet Building Software from So make sure to add this presentation at the Innovation Stage, Wednesday, April 5th at 11:30am to your agenda to learn more about how to fill your labor gap.
