New advances, from Industrial Ethernet to new motor controls and termination methods, have given rise to unforeseen changes in automation system design. Often, advances bring new requirements, and the need to rethink control panels and enclosures to ensure safe, efficient, reliable-optimized-performance.

High-Speed Packaging Robots

High-Speed Packaging Robots

The delta-style MPP3 robot operates at 150 cycles per minute and is designed for picking, packing, cartoning and kitting applications.

 

The delta-style MPP3 robot operates at 150 cycles per minute and is designed for picking, packing, cartoning and kitting applications. The robot features a three-arm configuration with a direct-driven rotary axis for high speeds. Its long arms with shorter-arm radii provide a compact footprint and a deeper reach, while providing a large working envelope. It is IP65-rated and features a 3-kg payload capacity, a work envelope of 1,300 mm in diameter and 500 mm deep, and a repeatability of ±0.1 mm (±0.004”). The MPP3 is powered by the FS100 controller with a compact footprint and open-software architecture for multiple applications.
