The integrated 6-axis articulated arm robot, a fully-programmable arm that moves in all directions, uses its four-point tool to pick-up two lots of two portions from the multihead weigher at the same time and pack them neatly in the trays provided.

This used to require a highly-complex mechanism or even manual intervention. A benefit of the MULTIPOND transfer system is its flexibility, as each of its numerous motion sequences is freely programmable. Another benefit is the entire transfer system control is integrated into the weigher control at operator level. In addition, compressed air is not required.

The robot integrated into the system conforms to protection class IP67. All materials used are food-grade quality and very easy to clean. The system, equipped with the appropriate device, is self-cleaning and is very low maintenance thanks to the simple construction.
