“Packaging manufacturers are finding the global market place increasingly competitive, which has spawned a new metric adherence within production and packaging environments,” said John Dulchinos, president and CEO of Adept Technology, Inc. “Companies are now closely examining Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Cost-Per-Pick (CPP) when they invest in new lines and automation equipment.”
The Adept Quattro s650H offers a blend of high-speed production capability with the flexibility of robotic automation. The system simultaneously addresses both ends of the production continuum.
The parallel robot handles high-speed manufacturing, packaging, material handling, and assembly applications. It features a four-arm rotational platform, which delivers maximum speed and acceleration across the entire work envelope. Compact controls and embedded amplifiers ease installation and reduce workspace requirements.
The Adept ACE PackXpert™ software programs the robot to stack and sort product. Designed specifically for packaging applications, the all-in-one program is flexible, enabling manufacturers to respond quickly to part changes without lengthy reprogramming. An easy-to-use intuitive graphic interface and 3D workspace display the system operation including physical and conceptual objects.
