JLS introduces new robotic packaging platform
JLS Automation will introduce its next generation robotic packaging platform at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2017. The new robotic packaging system that integrates motion, logic, safety and HMI into a single scalable platform, according to the company. This new platform is immediately available for both Talon robotic pick and place systems and Osprey robotic case packers.
The next gen systems carry sanitary design standards, according to JLS Automation. A stainless steel (IP69K rated) delta robot with higher payload capacity (up to 30kg / 66 lbs.) is now part of the next gen systems. Other sanitary features of the next gen systems will be standard open frame design, sloped surfaces and four levels of sanitary design.
An industrial computing platform was integrated to offer motion control and a path to Industry 4.0 concepts of greater flexibility and IOTT connectivity. This stable and versatile control system features a small electrical footprint, allows for system expandability, is easy to use and offers simplified remote diagnostics. Video and animation directly through the HMI for operator training and troubleshooting are also available.
“Hygienic design and flexibility is the backbone of JLS packaging systems,” said Craig A. Souser, president/CEO. “Our next gen systems take those principles to another level. Customers want systems that not only get the job done, but are sanitary, flexible and truly operator-friendly. Throw in remote monitoring, Industry 4.0 and connectivity. Our next gen offerings certainly answer the call.”
