Integrate Robotics into Packaging
The PacDrive Robot P3 is designed as a complete mechanical package for integrating pick-and-place capabilities into packaging machinery.
It complements the vendor’s robotic library, which enables control software integration in the same PacDrive automation controller running the machine, requiring no kinematics skills or proprietary robot controllers. The PacDrive Robot P3 is based on the principle of a Delta3 robot. Using light composite materials for most moving parts, the Robot P3 is said achieve operating speeds of up to 160 cycles per minute in pick-and-place operations. With a vertical picker path of up to 230 mm, P3 covers a circular operating envelope with a diameter of 1100 mm. With a vertical path of 350 mm, it covers an 800 mm diameter envelope.
