Accumulator/robotic arm combination


The co. has formed a partnership with KUKA Robotics. The focal point of this endeavor is KUKA's KR-40 PA robot which—depending on product and end-of-arm tooling—reportedly cycles at rates to 80/min with payloads to 40 kg, working in conjunction with the co.'s Rolco Serpentine Accumulator. This accumulator is said to provide first-in/first-out functionality and allows products to be received at any rate, while products are being discharged at the same or different rates. The co. says consistent product flow to downstream equipment creates increased efficiencies for the entire line.
