Robot uses a patented 4-link parallel drive and carbon fiber construction to provide packaging cycle times said to be twice as fast as conventional robots—240 pick-and-place cycles/min. Controls are integrated inside the robot, virtually eliminating external control cabinets. The company’s SmartController platform provides integrated vision and tracking for as many as 6 conveyors. System features over-the-belt mounting, a 1,300-mm work envelope, a 250-mm Z-stroke, and a washdown option.
