Robotic automation is a proven solution for both primary and secondary food-packaging lines, which typically require rapid, repetitive, labor-intensive product handling. A primary or secondary packaging line that combines Adept's robotic components, application software, and game-changing SoftPIC gripper/grasper technology can yield significant productivity gains while improving safety and sanitary conditions.
"Food processors are looking to robotic automation with integrated vision and conveyor control to provide the speed and efficiency of hard automation but with flexibility for quick changeover between products," states
Hewson further adds "Robotic automation can also help processors dramatically lower distribution labor costs by packing mixed-product cases for specific store orders on the secondary packaging line and eliminating repacking at distribution warehouses."
Adept's differentiating food packaging innovations include the Adept Quattro™ s650HS, the world's only
Adept will be showing its SoftPIC grippers and graspers at Pack Expo Las Vegas,
