ESS Technologies: Robotic end effectors

ESS Technologies TaskMateTM Robotic Loading System integrates a FANUC LR Mate mini robot with ESS custom-designed end-of-arm-tooling.
The TaskMate™ automates machine loading at the infeed. The custom end-of-arm-tooling can be designed to handle most types of product such as ampoules, syringes, bottles and tubes, allowing the system to robotically load machine infeeds on thermoform blister packagers, cartoners, wrappers, and other types of packaging equipment. Quick release connections allow the robotic end effector to be removed or installed in seconds, providing quick changeover. FANUC robots and the integrated end effectors will work in a number of environmental settings, including clean room, process, and packaging. Equipped with a tabletop platform, interlocked guarding, and optional light curtain, the TaskMateTM Robotic Loader easily integrates with most packaging equipment. All FANUC robots offer enhanced motion control, speed, vision, and robotic dexterity, making the robot a key component to the TaskMateTM system.
