Robotic tube filler/loader

Article-Robotic tube filler/loader

The TaskMate™ robotic loading system incorporates a Fanuc robot and ESS—designed end—of—arm tooling (EOAT) to load the infeed of Model TF 100, which automatically fills and closes up to 100 metal, plastic or PE/foil tubes/min. The robotic infeed system keeps pace with the tube fillers, allowing the TF 100 to run at maximum production levels. Multi-axis robots fitted with custom-designed EOAT provide the dexterity required to prevent damage to the tubes. This reduces scrap and increases machine uptime, the co. says. An empty-tube case-accumulation system on the robotic loader allows the filler to operate unattended for long production runs. Suitable for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
