ESS Technologies’ end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) and programming system integrates FANUC’s M-1iA delta style robot to create a very compact system for machine loading and unloading.
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Filling/sealing  > Capping
Applications for the robotic system include loading filler/capper machines, blister packaging machines and thermoformers, loading or unloading pucks, high-speed sorting or assembly systems, loading moving conveyors, or picking parts from moving conveyors. The FANUC M-1iA robot is available in 2 models. The M-1iA/0.5S has 4 axes while the M-1iA/0.5A is a 6-axis robot. Models are lightweight, compact high-speed units that can be integrated directly with a machine or ordered with a desktop stand or a reverse stand for mounting the robot to the ceiling.
