Print Reprint

With the expiration of key patents, packaging machine designers now have the option of designing their own delta3 robot arms or purchasing delta picker arms to reduce their upfront investment in developing a robotic capability for primary and secondary packaging applications. PackDrive Robot P3 uses light composite materials for most moving parts, resulting in an ultra-light module that allows operation at speeds to 160 cycles/min in pick-and-place operations. With a vertical path of 230 mm, the robot covers a circular operating envelope with a dia of 1,100 mm.
