Picking, packing and palletizing robot solutions

FANUC America will highlight its latest robot and cobot solutions for picking, packing and palletizing at Pack Expo International in Chicago.

The food-grade delta DR-3iB/6 STAINLESS robot features a fully enclosed stainless steel body that is resistant to the chemicals and high pressure/temperatures required in strict wash down environments. It has a 1200mm reach (450mm height) and a four-axis design allowing it to handle 6kg payloads at high speeds. The robot’s surface finish ensures that microbial contaminants can be washed away cleanly. Additional features include NSF H1 food grade lubricant, secondary oil catch basins (with viewing windows to monitor potential leaks), self-draining surfaces and other details driven by USDA/FDA standards.

A new flexible CRX-25iA robot, offering a 25kg payload and 1,889mm reach will demonstrate case palletizing. Guided by a 3DV/200 vision sensor mounted to the arm, the CRX-25iA will palletize boxes to nearly 7 ft. high. The robot can be easily repositioned by hand and uses vision to automatically adjust to its new location and continue working accurately.

The new CRX-20iA/L cobot equipped with a 3DV/200 vision sensor will pick consumer items of varying sizes and shapes that weigh up to 20kg and load them onto a storage cart. The demonstration highlights the cobot’s wide motion range and ability to handle large and heavy packages, relieving workers from physically demanding jobs.
