Food-picking robot

September 1, 2008




Fanuc’s M-430iA/2F high-speed, food-picking robot bears the USDA, AMS Meat and Poultry Accepted Equipment logo. Designed for food washdown environments, the robot picks primary food and packaged products at speeds up to 120 cycles/min. on a continuous basis while using visual line tracking. It can be mounted in a variety of positions including floor, wall or invert to maximize flexibility for tight workspaces. Manufactured with food-grade grease and USDA-accepted parts, the robot has special coating, materials and seals to withstand caustic food industry cleaners and acids. It operates at 120 cycles/min. at a 1kg payload and 100 cycles/min. at a 2kg payload.
