Stäubli Robotics to Showcase New Solutions for the Food and Packaging Industries at Pack Expo
Stäubli Robotics Posted 09/14/2011DUNCAN, SC – Stäubli Robotics will showcase the latest flexible automated solutions for the food and packaging industries at Pack Expo, North America’s largest packaging and processing show.
At booth S-5279, Stäubli will display the TX60 HE with an ultrasonic knife to illustrate cutting in a wet environment. The HE series is the only robotic design that can handle the sanitation procedures, cleaning processes and wet environments required by the food industry. Features include an IP67 enclosed arm structure with pressurization reinforced seals and an IP67 wrist capable of low pressure immersion and resistance to corrosion.
Stäubli’s new Food and Packaging Specialist, Robert Rochelle, states that “With this HE design, handling raw or unpackaged products is now possible without risk of contamination.”
Stäubli will also feature the TX40 with uniVAL drive, an innovative approach to controlling robots. UniVAL drive is a "ready to plug" solution to drive Staubli robots with generic industrial motion controllers. Featuring a standardized Ethernet real time drive interface for a simple connection to external control systems, uniVAL drive provides a simple tool for controlling Stäubli's complete product line of four and six-axis robots from generic industrial motion controllers. Collaboration with Keba Controls will showcase 7-axis capabilities with coordinate motions.
An additional highlight of the Stäubli Robotics Expo includes the TS60 SCARA with conveyor tracking, demonstrating picking and placing candies. The Stäubli line of SCARA robots is widely used by packaging machinery companies for high speed lines to pick and place products into trays, cartons, and various blister packs.
Attendees are encouraged to stop by booth S-5279 to meet the Stäubli team and be present for the unveiling of a revolutionary product, marking the next generation of automation.
