Stainless-steel ERD electric cylinders are ideal for food and beverage and other wash down environments, where corrosion resistance, compact size and flexible motor sizing are important.
New robotic technology for food processing and packaging applications, competes with Delta robots. 200 per minute, full repeatability to .05 mm throughout range of motion.
Racks get bent and parts don’t always sit in the same place. This robot uses 2-D and 3-D camera to update its position for accurate picking of parts–-self-contained unit, no PC required, web-based interface can be set up and monitored from an HMI on the factory floor.
Cables & wires (control and data cables, continuous flex cables, hook-up wires, VFD cables), data, network & bus technology (fiber optics, bus cables, industrial Ethernet cables), custom & specialty cables (special requirements, extreme environments, wind & solar power), robotic serv
Feature vibration suppression and auto tuning—fiber optic motion bus makes it easy to program high-speed synchronous applications with a graphical user interface.
Pack Flow Concepts showed a robotic system that takes individual packs from a tote or case and places them efficiently in a delivery tote.
Schneider's Robotic cartoning and case-loading system uses a delta-style robot and a machine vision system to locate and pick items at speeds to 300/min.
Baxter is a $22,000 robot from Rethink Robotics that performs repetitive tasks at modest speeds. Force-sensing technologies make it extremely safe for operation around human beings.
Lightweight, collaborative robot designed by Universal Robots is meant to be used in close proximity with humans and can be moved around from position to position in the plant.
The Motoman Robotics Div. of Yaskawa Americas featured a dual-head robotic picking system that handles up to 185 picks/min.
High-speed packaging robot from Fanuc that is especially suitable for food and beverage applications does up to 180 picks/min.
The TP80 fast picker from Stäubli Robotics is ideal for high speeds and low payloads with high accuracy.
