Packaging robot

Article-Packaging robot

The Quattro(tm) s650 robot is said by its manufacturer to be the world's fastest, light-payload packaging and handling robot targeted at the food, consumer goods, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. The robot uses a patented, four-link parallel drive and a carbon-fiber construction to provide cycle times up to 240 pick-and-place cycles/min and is also said to be the first to integrate the controls inside the robot, virtually eliminating external control cabinets to save factory floor space and simplify installation. The robot features the co.'s SmartController platform, which provides fully integrated vision and conveyor tracking for up to six conveyors, as well as over-the-belt mounting, a 1,300-mm work envelope and a 250-mm Z-stroke.
